Just curious if anybody has bought any of these cards?

Did it work? Were you able to create a Hulu+ Account?

Cheers

Product DescriptionThe demand for Hulu Plus outside US is huge so please allow 48 hours for us to process your order. Thank you for your business and patience.

We have been testing on how to open hulu plus account without a US credit card for a while. We finally found a way to subscribe to HuluPlus from outside USA using a special US prepaid card. If you already have a Hulu Plus account, you can just buy the Hulu Plus code from us to save money.

Here are the basic steps.

 

  • 1. You will get a detail information of the prepaid card (type of card, card number, expiration date, security code (CSV)) from us after making the payment.
  • 2. You will need to register your card to a valid US address following the instruction we sent to you. Please make sure to choose a simple address and avoid using complicated or well known address such as a Borderline forwarding address.
  • 3. You need a VPN service so that Hulu Plus sees your IP address as an USA IP address before opening a Hulu Plus account.
Please note the balance of the card is $25 which will be enough to cover 3 months of Hulu Plus subscription. You can always buy and redeem Hulu Plus subscription code to keep the account active.

We already pay the activation fee for you. HOWEVER: The bank issued this prepaid card will deduct from your balance an inactivity fee of $2.95 per month after 12 consecutive months of inactivity. So basically you pay no fee if you use the card right away for your Hulu Plus service

The grammar used in some of the wording rings some alarm bells. However, I would be interested to see if it works also.

Just use "megaupload". Download what you want and watch it when you want.

Now your paying to illegally access content. In more than place (Hulu and the VPN provider).

Old discussion... One thing is "regional locking" and "terms of services", which is very different from downloading pirated content. At the minimum you are actually paying for the content to the content owners.

I had a Hulu Plus account when I was in the US but cancelled after a couple months. Netflix streaming for $10 is better value, unless all you want to do is watch the latest episode of shows that are currently playing the US. Hulu has hardly any older episodes now and usually only the latest 3 of current shows.

Hey all - can someone please check if this works with a DNS service such as unblock-us.com?  I use this to get Netflix and would be interested to know if Hulu+ works too.

Even with 3 fees (DNS+Netflix+Hulu+) I would only be pay (5+10+8=23USD = 28NDZ a month, which is 1/2 of Sky's basic package, and have a far larger library to access.

Now if there was a single interface for all this content in Windows Media Centre, it would be perfect!

unblock-us.com changes your DNS. It will cause problems if you use an ISP with transparent proxy, and it may cause problems when accessing data from CDNs.

According to the unblock-us website Hulu works.. So if you using unblock-us for Netflix I dont see why it won't work for Hulu.
