FAQ: Hulu with a VPN
Can I use a VPN to watch Hulu for free?
No, you will still need a Hulu account. If you don’t already have one, you’ll need to sign up separately. ExpressVPN ensures you can watch Hulu safely and at top speeds anywhere, including public Wi-Fi, without having to compromise your security or picture quality.
What devices can I watch Hulu on?
Hulu is available on a wide range of devices, including:
Smartphones and tablets, including iOS and Android
Computers, including Mac, Windows, and Linux
Smart TVs and TV box systems, including Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV Stick and Roku
Game consoles, including PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch
ExpressVPN has easy-to-use apps for many of these devices and covers five devices simultaneously. But even if your device cannot install ExpressVPN directly, you can still enjoy full VPN benefits by connecting it to a router running ExpressVPN.

Can I download the Hulu app using a VPN?
Yes, it’s easy to download the Hulu app securely using a VPN. Make sure you’re connected to a U.S. VPN server location, then simply download the Hulu app and start streaming. Please contact our Support team if you have any difficulties downloading the Hulu app with a VPN.
Can I use Hulu to stream live sports?
Yes! Hulu is one of the best ways to watch sports live without a cable subscription. With the Hulu + Live TV add-on, you can get ESPN, Fox Sports, and regional sports networks, plus other cable and broadcast networks that carry live games. You can watch on two screens simultaneously and use the built-in cloud DVR service to record events that are being shown at inconvenient times.
Will using a VPN to stream Hulu slow my connection?
All VPN services add a layer of encryption that has the potential to slow down your connection. ExpressVPN, however, has an extremely fast, constantly optimized network, so you probably won’t notice a difference.
If your ISP has been known to throttle streaming services, using a VPN to watch Hulu may actually speed up your connection.
Why isn’t Hulu working with my VPN?
Hulu works best when you’re connected to the U.S. server location closest to your physical location. If you’re connected to a U.S. location and still having difficulty, please contact Support.
Why streamers love ExpressVPN
Perfect. Unlike other VPNs that took forever to stream anything, with ExpressVPN I never notice a difference at all. It takes a lot to make me happy but this did it for me.
Have been using this service for two years now... it's infallible. Works with every app and streaming service. Uptime is good, no stuttering or delay on streams.
This is the first VPN service that doesn't slow down or buffer my streaming services while I'm at home. I appreciate that and thank you all for doing it right!
How to stream on your TV with ExpressVPN
Using ExpressVPN means secure streaming in blazing-fast HD! Here are four ways to stream with a VPN:
Connect via HDMI cable. Simply run an HDMI cable from another device with ExpressVPN installed to your TV. Don’t have an HDMI cable handy? Try mirroring or casting instead.

Besides smart TVs, ExpressVPN also works with a wide range of devices—and you can connect up to 5 at the same time with a single subscription!
