There are a few main difference between being able to access Hulu in Canada and accessing Hulu Plus in Canada.
The two biggest advantages that Hulu Plus provides are that you get to access more than a limited amount of recent episodes and you can watch Hulu Plus on other devices rather than just on your computer like you can with Hulu.
If you’re looking to watch Hulu Plus in Canada on your iPad, on your iPhone or even on your iPod Touch than just follow the steps in this guide and you’ll be streaming your favorite shows in no time.
I should also mention that you can also watch Hulu Plus in Canada on your Android devices as well. The setup is very similar and a full guide is coming soon. For now, you should be able to replicate the steps in this guide but on your Android smartphone or tablet.
How To Watch Hulu Plus in Canada on Your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch : The Step By Step Guide
You will need three things to be able to watch Hulu Plus in Canada on your iPad or other iOS device. Those three things are:
- A Hulu Plus account: Setting up a Hulu Plus account in Canada on your own can be rather challenging and it involves a prepaid credit card, a US street address and lots of patience. I recommend that you choose to get yourself an account a much easier way and that is by purchasing a Hulu Plus Starter Pack from www.buyprepaidcredits.com.
- A US iTunes account: so you can download the Hulu Plus app from the US iTunes store. This can be done by following this guide on how to get a US iTunes account in Canada.
- A HMA account: Now that you have a Hulu Plus account and a US iTunes account you will need to sign up for HMA which is a piece of software that allows you to virtually reside in the United States.
Once you have these three account you will then need to set up HMA on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.
How To Setup HMA On Your iPad, iPhone Or iPod Touch
Getting your iOS device setup with HMA has never been easier since HMA launched their iOS app. All you need to do is download the app, launch it, sign into your HMA account then follow steps 4-12 to complete the setup.
Remember that each step, other than step 3, is just a tap of the screen. Here is how to get your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch set up to watch Hulu Plus in Canada:
For whatever strange reason you’re looking to set up HMA on an iOS device manually (not using the HMA app) then you will need to follow this guide below. It has quite a few steps but please don’t look at all the steps and get discouraged.
I would highly recommend you use the HMA iOS app but I wanted to share the manual step-by-step guide as well in case you want to do it yourself.
It is very simple to set up HMA on these devices so just take it one step at a time and in a few minutes you will be able to watch HuluPlus on your iPad up here in Canada.
When you get to step #6 you will need to get some info from your HMA account. Here is what each of those lines are asking for:
Description: This is the name that you want to call this VPN connection. I would recommend you just call it “HMA [CITY NAME]” so you know where the pro VPN server is located. A good rule of thumb is to select the city that is closest to where you are located.
Server: This is the PPTP IP address that you will find in step #8 below that is highlighted by the #2 arrow.
Account: This is the username that you will find in step #8 below that is highlighted by the #1 arrow.
