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.
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.
Can I use a free proxy for Hulu?
Using a free proxy for Hulu is not recommended. Free services are often slow or do not work with Hulu at all, and some may even sell your data to third parties to make money.
Does a VPN let me watch Hulu for free?
No, ExpressVPN does not come with 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.
How do I watch Hulu live?
Want to enjoy live programming? Hulu + Live TV is a premium package, available as a paid add-on to your Hulu account. With offerings similar to other “cord-cutting” services, it gives you unlimited access to more than 60 TV channels including ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, CNN, and many others. You may have to supply a valid U.S. ZIP code.
Will using Hulu and VPN 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 use ExpressVPN?
Download as much as you want, without your ISP or VPN capping certain kinds of traffic.
