Does PureVPN Work with Hulu?
Hulu is a tough service to unblock outside US, but PureVPN works effectively for Hulu as my latest testing reveals in detail below.
PureVPN is one of those products that you could call a “jack of all trades”. Apart from its privacy features, the VPN works exceedingly well for the purposes of unblocking many popular streaming services, Hulu included.
However, when it comes to Hulu, we have to be absolutely sure that the VPN in question can actually unblock Hulu. The majority of VPNs fail to unblock Hulu because of the anti-VPN technology it uses, which is even stronger than Netflix.
So, I tested PureVPN with Hulu to see if it works. The result? PureVPN is definitely working with Hulu. I’m going to show my test results below.
Steps for Unblocking Hulu with PureVPN
Step 1: Download and install PureVPN on your device after purchasing a subscription.
Step 2: Launch PureVPN and click on the “Popular Websites” button, then search for “Hulu“.
Step 3: Connect to the server then visit Hulu website.
Step 4: Pick any show or movie to watch and enjoy streaming.
Testing PureVPN with Hulu
Before starting to test PureVPN, I first reached the PureVPN customer support and inquired whether the service works with Hulu. They answered in the affirmative:
While the answer seems a little cryptic, I’m pretty sure they meant to say that PureVPN’s special “Hulu” servers will allow me to access the streaming service. As I have shown in the video below, I found a “Hulu” server after searching for it in the “Popular Websites” option in PureVPN app’s main server selection screen.
This immediately worked and I was able to stream Hulu right away with PureVPN:
PureVPN remained very stable during throughout my testing. As you can see for yourself in the video above, PureVPN was able to unblock Hulu streams with minimal buffering and standard picture quality.
I am sure you could get higher quality as well with a faster Internet, but unfortunately I only had a poor man’s connection available for this testing which is why the picture quality isn’t extraordinary.
For the best experience, simply select the “Stream mode” from the main PureVPN app screen and it will allow you to connect to the best optimized streaming servers for all a great, uninterrupted Hulu experience.
Since PureVPN automatically selects the best server for you after “Hulu” is chosen in the “Popular Websites” option, we can’t control which specific server to connect to.
Nonetheless, our PureVPN speed test results (which were conducted on a high-end Internet connection unlike mine at present) for the US servers looked something like this:
While these speeds are pretty average, these are still pretty good for HD quality streaming, provided your base connection is fast enough. Indeed, you could even download torrents quickly with PureVPN with the same level of speeds as obtained by us.
PureVPN Hulu Proxy Error? Try These Fixes
While PureVPN generally works well with Hulu, you can still receive errors from time to time. If you’ve had the misfortune to experience these issues, try the following fixes:
Solution #1: Try changing PureVPN to a different “mode”. Usually, “stream mode” works the best for accessing Hulu.
Solution #2: Connect directly to a US server from “Locations” menu rather than connecting Hulu from “Popular Websites” option.
Solution #3: Flush your DNS by accessing “Command Prompt” and then typing in ipconfig /flushdns > Enter.

PureVPN’s Free Trial
PureVPN does not exactly offer a free trial. Rather, it’s a low cost option of trying PureVPN for 7 days. If you continue to use it beyond those 7 days, you will be charged the full amount of your chosen subscription plan. But if you cancel PureVPN within 7 days, you’ll only lose $0.99. This guide explains the whole PureVPN free trial business at length.
PureVPN works brilliantly with Hulu. The setup process is extremely simple and only involves connecting to the special “Hulu” servers to unblock the streaming site.
The excellent unblocking strength of PureVPN enables access to Netlfix as well, so it’s not only Hulu that the VPN is good for. Overall, PureVPN is one of the best value services you can have to access Hulu anywhere in the world, free of geo-restrictions.
