I'm an occasional lurker who has really appreciated the technical tips in this forum regarding accessing geo-blocked streaming sites, Netflix and Hulu specifically.
I've been using the OneSmart card to pay for Hulu for 3 years very happily. My new OneSmart card arrived in January 2016 as the old one was due to expire, so I dutifully went to change my payment details in Hulu and it rejected my new card!
I've tried exhaustively to get Hulu to authorise it, but I get the impression that they have closed whatever loophole allowed OneSmart to be accepted 3 years ago.
Without resorting to purchasing gift cards from a reseller or actually physically moving to the USA, does anybody have any recommendations on a way to reactivate my Hulu account?
I read about a workaround where you open a US iTunes account and use NZ funds to buy Hulu gift cards through that, but I failed to get through the account signup process. First it rejected my OneSmart, then it started telling me I didn't meet the minimum age requirements to have an account. I'm just about to turn 40 so either Apple had a glitch or they're really heading towards the senior market. :-)
Any suggestions welcome.
