Hulu Blocks International Access Via Witopia

October 29th, 2009 10:05 admin

An anonymous reader notes, and excerpts from, an article at PC Authority: “It’s human nature that people always want what they can’t have — which is why there’s so much interest around the world in accessing the US-only Hulu site. Hulu offers a range of television shows for streaming, including Family Guy, The Daily Show and House along with a few full length movies. … If you’re outside the US, the easiest method for accessing Hulu that many people are discussing online, is using a US-based VPN, which tricks Hulu into thinking their computer is within the US. Initially Hulu started cracking down on free VPN services such as Hotspot Shield, but now it’s turned its attention to Witopia — which costs $40 or $US60 per year but offers a faster, more secure and more reliable service than its free competitors. Initially Witopia’s LA gateway remained unaffected, but now Hulu has blocked this as well.”
