Hulu Blocks Canadians (and others) from using Hotspot Shield

imageAfter years of putting it off I finally installed and learned how to use Hotspot Shield last week. It worked wonderfully.  I was all set to write a blog post about it. Wouldn’t you know it, within a week Hulu has found a way to block it!

imageI just tested it and indeed I’m blocked. I’ll still use Hotspot Shield for the plethora of other free services not available in Canada (eg: Pandora, last.fm) for so long as it works. But, once again, it sucks to be a new media enthusiast when you live in Canada!

Until hulu comes to Canada (if ever) we still have TV streaming from CTV and Global.

    It’s costs money but try purevpn.com. I think they’ll give you a trial if you ask. VPNs to US,UK,Canada, and Germany. 6 bucks a month or less is worth it I think. I've been checking out UK media with it.

    Glad to see a lawyer complaining about this Hulu move! I'm sure lawyers are behind the ban! :-)
