Hulu begins blocking VPN users to eliminate streaming outside the US

Video streaming service Hulu has started to restrict access to its content for those who use virtual private networks (VPN), according to a TorrentFreak report. Users outside the US have been previously able to circumvent location restrictions by utilizing VPN services, and subsequently, Hulu has begun unofficially blocking all VPN users regardless of location to prevent out-of-country usage. Some VPN companies are in touch with Hulu in an attempt to create a solution for those who are in the US and yet wish to maintain their privacy on the internet, as currently Hulu requests the disabling of one's anonymizer to access content.
