I just signed up to this VPN Service with Private Internet Access because it's easier to switch on and off as I need it compared to a DNS service that unblocks sites.

Well whenever I try to use Hulu from any of their US gateways, hulu tells me it's not supported outside US, and to disable my anonymizer if I'm in the US, otherwise submit a form.

Anyone else having this issue? The VPN is definitely connected and working, I'm just not sure what else to try. I'm home nursing a cold and bored out of my mind now lol

Tried another VPN provider?

A few weeks back Hulu pushed back some VPN users and most of the large providers foudn a workaround. Maybe not this one...

I use a VPS in the US and that works fine for me, but a seedbox I have in the US works for Netflix but not Hulu. So YMMV with some VPN / VPS services vs others.

BarTender: I use a VPS in the US and that works fine for me, but a seedbox I have in the US works for Netflix but not Hulu. So YMMV with some VPN / VPS services vs others.

what host? Not many seedboxes in the US as the hosts get shut down fairly quick.
I have had a few in Europe generally along the lines of 1Gbp/s each way and 4 SSD's in raid 0.
