Watch Hulu from the comfort of your living room from Apple TV

As you already know, if you want to stream Hulu from outside the United States you’re going to need to use the power of a Hulu gift card coupled with a VPN service. What isn’t as obvious, is how do you take that same amazing service and bring it into your living room?

What you might not know, is you can setup your Apple TV to use your VPN service and access the same Hulu subscription you otherwise would normally stream from your computer or mobile device.

Did you get “Netflix is not Supported” error message?

If you’ve seen this dreaded message, coupled with “Netflix is currently not supported in your location.” then we have some good news. There is a way for you to setup your Apple TV and stream Hulu directly to your television.

There are a few steps to this process, and to complete this tutorial you are going to need the following:

  1. An iTunes account registered to the United States.
  2. An active Hulu subscription.
  3. An active VPN subscription service.
  4. A VPN ready router.

You router might already be VPN ready, or you can buy VPN routers from any computer store or Amazon. Check with your VPN service provider to confirm the compatibility with your router. A few well supported models are Asus RT-N16 and Linksys WRT54GL. 

Here are a few VPN routers that come highly recommended:

Configuring iTunes and enabling your US Hulu subscription.

To activate your Hulu subscription, you will want to use a Hulu gift card to pay for your service. This will allow you to avoid the hassles of setting up an alternative payment method with US billing.

With your Hulu subscription enabled, open your Apple TV and login to your US iTunes account. Under Preferences you can select your location, chose United States.

Let the streaming begin.

Now with your Apple TV logged into your US iTunes account, your location set to United States, and your router actively using your VPN service for it’s traffic, you open the Hulu app from your couch and begin enjoying Hulu.
