How to Watch Hulu Originals in Canada
If you have been looking for Hulu originals, you have come to the right place. This blog will guide you to some the easiest and most secure ways to get a Hulu subscription and watch its content in Canada.
Though there are numerous Hulu titles you can watch in Canada through the new category of Disney+ called “Star," there are still so many exciting Hulu originals that you are missing out on. So, if you are keen to watch hit Hulu shows, including The Kardashians, The Girl from Plainville, Fire Island, The Orville: New Horizons Season 3, and more, read on.
Watching Hulu in Canada via a VPN
A reliable VPN is one of the first things you need to proceed with. A VPN is the best for securing an IP address of your choice. So, the first step is to download the VPN app after getting a subscription. Choose a server from the USA and connect to the Hulu website to sign in to your account, and you will be good to go!
This is the easiest way for people in Canada with a Hulu subscription to access the streaming platform, but what about those who do not have a subscription? Well, this blog will guide you to do just that! Let’s explore how people in Canada can easily subscribe to Hulu and start streaming their favorite content.
Getting Hulu’s Subscription in Canada
Since Hulu Canada is not a thing, and it is only available in the US and Japan, the payment methods for subscribing to the service also involve using payment methods accepted in the US, such as using an American Express card or the US PayPal account. However, if both options are out of the question, you can opt for one of the following methods.
Buying a Hulu gift card
It is the top-recommended method to subscribe to Hulu in Canada. You can get Hulu gift cards from various services in Canada, including Walmart, My Gift Card Supply, eBay, and Target. Hulu gift cards are readily available from these services and cost around CA$31.51 to CA$63.02.
Make sure to purchase the gift card while connected via a VPN and set your location to the US. Next, visit the Hulu website via VPN and select the "Redeem your Gift" option.
Enter the gift card code you received earlier when buying the gift card, choose a Hulu plan, enter your information, and you will be subscribed to Hulu Canada in no time.
Subscribing via American Virtual Card
You can also subscribe to Hulu using a virtual prepaid card through StatesCard. These cards are virtual, and you can top them up using your credit card or bank account. Just go to the StatesCard website and sign up.
Upon getting a verification link via email, enter your National ID card, driver's license, and passport details to create a personal virtual card. Add funds to your virtual card using your credit card or PayPal account and get a Hulu account.
Asking your US friends or family a favor
This method is for you if you have friends, family, or acquaintances in the US. You can ask your US friend or family member for their card details, pay via their card for a Hulu subscription in Canada, and wire them the amount later.
Once you have the card details of a US resident, visit the Hulu website via a VPN and click on "Start your free trial." Choose the preferred payment method and plan, and click "Continue." Once you enter the US card details and a US zip code that you can find on Google, you can access Hulu originals in Canada without breaking a sweat.
Hulu in Canada through iTunes
Another easy method to get Hulu originals in Canada involves using your Apple account if you have one. With an Apple account, you do not require a US-based payment method to subscribe to Hulu. You will need to connect to a US VPN server. On your iOS device change the country region for media purchases by accessing Settings > Apple ID > Media Purchases > Country/Region.
Once you set your location to the USA, you must enter your debit or credit card information and add funds via an Apple gift card. Then visit the App Store, log in, download the Hulu app, and subscribe!
You should now be able to pick your preferred plan and scan your fingerprint to verify the transaction, and now you will have a Hulu subscription in Canada.
Now you can stream your favorite Hulu shows in Canada without worrying about geo-restrictions. These methods work flawlessly if you have a reliable VPN, so take your pick and enjoy streaming your favorite content on Hulu.
