Watch Hulu Plus In Canada

You want to take advantage of the vast amount of TV shows offered by Hulu Plus in Canada? Here is a few simple steps to get your started. If you need assistance setting up your specific device (iPad, PS3/PS4, Roku, Smart TV) please read one of the step by step guides provided.  This tutorial guides you on how to setup the Hulu Plus account in Canada. 

What you will need

1. A VPN solution ( we recommend ExpressVPN)
2. Smart Device ( PS3/PS4, Roku, Xbox 360/One, Smart Phone(Android or iOS)
3.   Hulu Plus Account

Setup your Smart DNS Solution 

Getting Hulu Plus in Canada can seem like a challenge, but is relatively easy once you follow all the steps. All you need to do is to sign up for a VPN service like ExpressVPNThese services mask your location and servers think your computer is located in the U.S., and so allow you to see "geoblocked" content like the Hulu Plus  in Canada.  

If you live in Canada and want to set up your whole home network with this service check out our Rogers and Bell setup guides.








Now it's time to setup our Hulu Plus Account




Canadian Credit Card Setup
When you setup your Hulu Plus account, you need to use your own street address that is associated with your credit card and convert your current postal code into a valid zip code as per the instructions below. Please note that you can use your current city, but you need to change the state to the one associated with your new "zip code" 

 You can use a Canadian credit card to pay for your  Hulu Plus subscription .

- Add zeros to the end if you have less than 5 digits in your postal code. So the 627  becomes ZIP 62700. 

In our case our postal code was M6M 2L7 became 62701 (we could not find a zip code that matched 62700) and our state was Illinois.

We wrote Toronto, IL in the billing information. 


Be sure to take note of the city and state associated with the new zip code as you need this for your account set up.
Construct a VALID existing 5 digit ZIP code from your postal code as follows:- Take the digits from your postcode. Our postal code M6M 2L7 becomes 627 ( we use the three digits in our postal code).
Use the USPS zip code tool to verify that it is a valid existing ZIP code.
If it is not an existing code, then add 1 to the last digit and try to verify again. So if our example of 62700 is not a valid zip code, then try 62701.


There is a number of Smart DNS & VPN providers so you can always use another one. The main trick here is ensuring your Hulu Plus is formatted properly with your current address turned into a US one. 



Do you want to setup using PayPal? Here is a guide on how to use PayPal. 

(US Paypal + Entropay):

1. Register a virtual Entropay VISA card from www.entropay.com . The minimum deposit is $25 and charges you 5% service charge.

2. Go to www.paypal.com and register a free US paypal account. Remember to choose your country as United States or this won't work. 

3. Once you received your Entropay VISA card, link it to your US Paypal account.

4. Go to www.hulu.com and sign up by selecting Paypal as the payment option. You should be able to sign up at this point.

5. Done! 


Do you want to use a pre-paid mastercard like the Vanilla Mastercard to setup Hulu Plus in Canada?

(Vanilla Mastercard / Pre Paid Mastercard):
1.  Head to your  local retailer, purchase a Vanilla MasterCard  
2.Make sure your computer is connected to your Smart DNS service (Blockless) computer, navigate to http://www.vanillamastercard.com and enter the card number to get into the balance screen.
3. Once you have access to the card balance screen, click "Register Card" on the left hand on-screen menu.  USE ZIP CODE 78231 when you do this.  An address isn't required.
4. Navigate to http://plus.hulu.com and Start a 2-week trial.  Use the Vanilla Mastercard you purchased, and USE ZIP CODE 62701 again, an address won't be required, but the zip code MUST match the one you use to register the Vanilla card.  Your results may vary if you choose to deviate from this process.

5. After your 2 week trial has ended, the Vanilla Mastercard will be billed for your Hulu Subscription. The larger you buy, the longer you can go without changing your card info.
6. Complete all the email verifications, device activations (http://hulu.com/devices) and you *should* be watching some quality television.

Pre Paid Hulu Plus Cards - Available Outside The US

The only service we really know about is BuyFromPowerSeller.com and they provide Hulu Plus pre-paid cards worldwide. We do want to note that these cards are marked up in price, so this is a good option if you do not want to use your current credit card / paypal and want to buy a subscription for multiple months.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I love Hulu plus especially because I can watch the latest Family Guy episodes 1 day after they air. If you live outside USA like me, you can use UnoTelly or other similar tools to access Hulu Plus overseas.
