So Global mode is going.
However there is a month and a half left until they pull the plug. (Supposed to end 1st September 2015).

As soon as Orcon announced global mode was going, Hulu on the Apple TV stopped working with the message (paraphrased) "Anonymous Proxy Detected".

It still works on a full computer, but not the apple TV.
I've tried (in order) switching global mode off, restarting modem, switch global mode on, restarting modem, restarting Apple TV.
No Change in behavior.

My question is what is the chance Orcon are going to invest any time/effort in getting this sorted? (Since its on the chopping block)

Also does anyone else have the same combination & issue (Orcon + Apple TV + Hulu)?

Perhaps you should post in the Online Streaming subforum asking for other Hulu on Apple TV users not connected to Orcon. If it happens to other networks, then it's not a Global Mode thing. Or could be that Hulu now knows about Global Mode.

I don't think you should bother with Orcon support on this - as you said it's going out anyway.
