IP Hider Accesses Hulu, Other US-Only Content From Outside The US

Windows only: Previously mentioned proxy application Hotspot Shield used to be the go-to option for accessing US-only content from outside the US, but now that popular sites like Hulu are wise to Hotspot Shield, give proxy application IP Hider a try.

Like Hotspot Shield, IP Hider is an easy-to-use proxy application that makes it appear as though you're browsing from inside the United States. As a result, sites like Hulu, which block access to folks surfing outside US borders, are now accessible to your foreign eyes.

To make things really easy on you, DIY video web site Tinkernut has provided a simple video tutorial for using IP Hider to access Hulu, which we've embedded above.

IP Hider is Windows only, comes in both free and premium flavours. (As far as we can tell, the premium version features dedicated proxy servers exclusively for paying IP Hider users.) We have a tough time testing how well IP Hider works with Hulu from inside US borders, so if you give it a try, let's hear how it panned out for you in the comments.

IP Hider [AllAnonymity] Two Cool Hulu Tricks [Tinkernut]


    Anyone know if this service is actually useful?

    I tried hotspot shield, but it took ages to connect, buffer etc.

    Also, for hilarity, check the US comments, they're discussing buying pot for some reason...

    Just tried this out, IP Hider's proxies have all been found and banned from Hulu already :( oh well it was worth a shot.

    Quite apart from the fact that it is way to slow to be at all useful. Back to Channel BT.

    I'd be interested to try this outside of Australia and try and access the ABC's iView service. I already have Hotspot Shield to access some sites (not Hulu).

      is there a site like hulu for Australia? i know there is iview but you can only watch abc programs

        No, there's no multi-network equivalent -- just a little content on the individual network sites (and a lot on iView).

    Can't believe I never thought to look for something like this to access US-Only content. Awesome!
