Watch Hulu outside the US!

Hulu was launched just after NBC left iTunes and it is actually pretty great. There is a lot of free content and the ads are very short. It unfortunately only works in the US and I've looked for a solution in the past, but I hadn't found anything. The solution came this week from the podcast Command-N. It is called AnchorFree and what it does is using a VPN, it shields your IP address. It is compatible with both PC and Mac and it is much better than Web proxies, because it actually has a menubar icon and menu to control it from there. Of course, you don't want to leave it connected all the time, because it adds advertising and all your web traffic goes through this. You can learn more and the download the app here from Thanks for the tip Command-N.

Every time I click on the mac tip widget and load a page it opens up in the RSS Reader on Safari, is there a way to change that, because it never used to be like that.

I tried using Anchor Free from the UK but it was painfully slow - so slow in fact that you couldn't watch the shows!

I agree. AnchorFree seriously cripples bandwidth.

If you're having problems outside the US the solution is to buy a simple VPN account. They work on every operating system, so no need to worry about compatibility. I bought mine at with hidemynet at for 5$, setup was easy 5minutes at most. Streaming hulu from the philippines with no problem. Even able to watch the HD streams on occasion when my ISP decides they want to do their jobs!
