Want to set up Hulu in Canada in 2021? Wondering why Hulu isn’t available in Canada in 2021, even though articles have been writing about Hulu coming to Canada in 2021?
We look at how to watch Hulu in Canada on your TV in this guide … TV shows and movies look better on the big screen, right?

Why Hulu in Canada is not yet available in 2021.

Hulu in Canada, as it is worldwide, is not available in 2021 due to rights issues.

A lot of the content that is on Hulu in the U.S. is shown outside the U.S. on other platforms like Netflix.
That’s one of the reasons why Disney+ is not yet available worldwide, even though Disney owns all the content. It’s because Disney signed deals with platforms like Netflix in the past, and many of them are still in place, which prevents Disney from streaming their content.
Those who say Hulu Canada is happening are creating clickbait blog posts that people click on.
Of course, Hulu is more likely to be outside the U.S. because Disney acquired it, content contracts are still in place, and even if it owns its content, other platforms have the rights to use it in other countries, and you can’t do anything about it.
That’s why Hulu in Canada in 2021 is not going to happen.

How to get Hulu in Canada in 2021
Hulu in Canada requires 3 steps.
1. Trick Hulu so that it can be seen as in a supported region for registration and use.
2. Using the right payment card to sign up for Hulu, as not all payment cards will work with this. (Something not everyone mentions).
3. Changing the app store location to download Hulu.

Tricking Hulu (the most important part of this guide).

In order to watch Hulu in Canada in 2020, Hulu must think you are in the US at all times.
For that to happen, you need to use a VPN.
A VPN is a virtual private network that allows you to change your location to be somewhere else in the world.
The key when it comes to services like Hulu, Disney+, ESPN+, and even BBC iPlayer, though?
To use a VPN service that focuses on entertainment.

Why?

Because for example, while there are services with thousands of servers, PrivateVPN with over a hundred is able to unblock most of the Netflix regions on the market. And sure, US Netflix has more Netflix content, but it doesn’t have everything.
Almost all VPN services use quantity as a sales tactic, and that’s an effective tactic since we, as humans, make all the quantity love.
Quantity is useful when you use VPN services for testing and other tasks, but when it comes to entertainment, quality is much more important, and that’s where PrivateVPN comes in with support for almost all major platforms.

That’s because we focus on quality, using our own hardware and using the highest quality bandwidth from tier 1 providers rather than hosting companies that often don’t tell the whole truth.
See, platforms like Hulu have to prevent people outside the US from watching Hulu. That you know as we mentioned. But they also have to make efforts to prevent VPN services from working otherwise because of this.
…As a result, very few VPN services can unblock entertainment.
And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in as the best budget VPN service for 2020 (as chosen by VPNmentor) with a 7-day risk-free trial that doesn’t even ask for a card so you can try it out.

Simply sign up, download the app and connect to a Hulu server.
The hardest step if you want to set up Hulu in 2021.

Every Hulu Canada guide will tell you that you need a VPN to trick Hulu so you can watch Hulu in Canada.
What almost no other guide tells you is that regardless of the VPN you get, you need the right payment method to sign up for Hulu, or Hulu won’t work for you.
We know this because we will set up all the accounts we make accounts for.
If you connect with any card, Hulu will simply tell you that your payment method is not from the correct region for Hulu, and Hulu, even though you connected with a VPN, will not work.
To set up Hulu in Canada, you need to have a US-issued card.
That is the most difficult step if you want to set up Hulu in 2020 because getting a card issued in the right country is not as easy as simply getting a VPN.

However, we have some fairly simple solutions to the problem.
1. Test your card. This tip doesn’t make sense, but for some reason, some cards from some banks, just work with Hulu.
2. Ask a friend who lives in the US or lived in the US in the past to help you with account creation, or if not, they can share their account with you.
3. Obtain a prepaid or virtual card issued in the US. With a few Google searches, you may find the best option for you.
…Or get Revolut in Canada once you leave. For some reason, Revolut works with Hulu, just like it works with ESPN+.
It’s important to have funds in whatever option you use to create a Hulu account.
Why?

Because Hulu takes a small amount that it refunds instantly, for verification purposes.
Most of the time, when using virtual / prepaid cards, people do not have funds on them.
Combine the right card with the right VPN, and you will get Hulu in Canada without any problems, but it might also make sense for you to read how to get Hulu on your device, as you won’t be able to just watch Hulu on any device, right away.
How to get Hulu in Canada on multiple devices
As far as Android and Apple devices are concerned, the easiest way to get Hulu is to download Google Chrome and enable the desktop site in the settings.

Otherwise, if you want the Hulu app, you will need to change your app store location.
Changing your Apple App Store location to download Hulu
On Apple devices, you must sign out of your iCloud account, followed by creating a new one based in the US.

That will allow you to download Hulu on your iPhone or iPad.
It’s important that you don’t just change the region of your current account, as that will cause you to lose everything.

However, you can, of course, simply switch between your accounts and all apps from both will be available on your device at all times.
Change the location of your Google Play Store to download Hulu on Android devices.
On Android, this step differs drastically in contrast to Apple devices.

In reality, you need to simply change the location of your account.
You do that by:
1. first connecting to an EE location.
2. By tapping on the 3 bars at the top left of the screen in your Play Store.
3. Choosing the option to switch to a US location, as suggested by Google.
4. Updating the payment method if requested.
5. Downloading Hulu.

Using Hulu in Canada on a TV?

TV is the most difficult platform to get Hulu working on, in Canada.
That’s because even in 2020, most TV platforms don’t support VPN services.
That’s if you have a smart TV or rock a platform like Apple TV, Chromecast, or Roku.
This is where you have some options.
Either you get the not-so-popular Android TV, install your VPN on your router, which is not something we recommend due to the fact that routers really can’t handle it, or…. you get an Amazon Fire TV Stick which costs around $25 and supports VPN services.
On the Amazon Fire TV Stick, we recommend immediately changing your location to be in the U.S., but if you haven’t, here’s how to do it:

1. Go to your current Amazon account in the web browser.
2. Press Accounts and lists, then Manage your account and content.
3. Select for your region to be in the United States.
4. Go to your Amazon Fire TV device. Tap Settings and My Account.
5. Unregister and sign back in to your Amazon account.
6. Download Hulu on your Fire TV Stick.

Here’s how to watch Hulu in Canada in 2021.
What’s great about this guide on how to watch Hulu in Canada in 2021?
That it pretty much also applies to other platforms like ESPN+ and BBC iPlayer.

Disclaimer: While PrivateVPN works with Hulu, due to the nature of services like Hulu that crack down on VPN services, PrivateVPN, like any other VPN service, cannot guarantee that our Hulu servers will work non-stop at all times.
