Watch Hulu from Any Country

I’m so tired of all these people bitch’n and complain’n about not having access to Hulu. Well, finally someone has both figured it out AND had the balls to post it. Over at NewTeeVee they did just that. I have no idea if it works or not but it must, it’s on the Internet right? Anyway, make sure you report back and let me know and enjoy it while it lasts. It’s only a matter of time before Hulu or someone else shuts it down.

On a separate note – Why? Why can’t you people have access? It’s all ad dollars anyways? It isn’t like you can’t find those same products on the same Internet that you’re watching Hulu on. It’s so stupid it makes my head spin. And don’t give me that “marketing rights” crap. Tell me you people aren’t irritated that you have to wait months for American shows to be aired. There is no reason for that delay other than pure sadism. Screw’em I say. Someone round up all the marketing people, ad execs, and crusty old men that make these decisions have force them to watch 24 hours of Hannah Montana, Jonas Brothers, and Yo Gaba Gaba! as punishment for their foolishness. Bad boy! BAD BOY! (And maybe girl but probably boy.)

    you can go to anonamouse (not sure if i spelled it right) and you can use servers in other countries if your country is blocking certain sites. For example i can not access torrentspy in california but i use http://anonymouse.org/ and then they think i am in the uk. If your country is blocking your right to view webpages then try it. Later and i love the episode. jason

    It may still be ‘ad dollars’ but the people that get them would change.

    If Hulu was accessible for UK viewers then it is SkyTV who wouldn’t see any money. So they have a contract for sole distribution.

    It would be the same with the BBCiPlayer which is UK only. If ‘Doctor Who’ was available on it all over the world then the American SciFi channel would loose out.

    Oops, that 3rd paragraph should have read:

    If Hulu was accessible for the UK viewers to watch something like 24, then it is SkyTV who wouldn’t see any money. So they have a contract for sole distribution of that show and others.

    Ross – understood but the real question is why are they delaying broadcast? My guess is that it is because of some lame deal with the original studio. That just encourages people in those countries to pirate the content. There is no reason for it. SkyTV should be playing 24 the same (general) time as Fox in the US, not months later. Then they’d get their ad dollars and no one would care if people in the UK got access to Hulu or not.

    Yep, you’re right. It is really annoying. Things have become a little better of late (e.g. Lost is shown a few days after the US now) but that certainly isn’t for all shows such as the wire which is currently showing season 2.

    And you are absolutely right that it encourages piracy. I know several people who download shows simply because they dont want to wait months to see what americans are talking about online and wouldnt bother if they only had to wait a day or 2.

    It’s simple. We want everything. All the time. Anywhere. For free. Why can’t content makers understand and provide that? yeesh :p

    Rob – Now you’re talking! I do want it for free but I don’t want them not to make money. That’s why I support ads in my content.
