Hulu attempts to block international viewers using VPNs

There is no specific blockade as of yet and so far Hulu is only looking out for a certain web addresses

Hulu has banned TV streaming outside of the US but who can put down the clever minds of users who have managed to find a way out? People always make use of VPNs when it comes to dodging websites and they have been using them for streaming TV as well. The company is not so happy about these unwanted users and wants to get rid of them soon. According to TorrentFreak, the company has resort to the only effective method. They have started to block any user who tried to get the company’s services through a VPN; regardless of the fact that they are from outside the US or from within. Users from within the US have been advised to disable their anonymizer.

There is no specific blockade as of yet and so far Hulu is only looking out for a certain web addresses. They haven’t been looking for the actual VPNs and this has given another way out to many users. If they are using a dedicated VPN address or a smaller provider, then there are chances that they might get past the new restrictions. This isn’t good news for the US users who had been relying on the VPN for the protection of their privacy.
