Hulu is blocking international viewers using VPNs

It's no secret that many use VPNs to dodge Hulu's ban on TV streaming outside of the US, but now the company is taking action against theis viewers. TorrentFreak reports that Hulu has started blocking anyone trying to access its service from commonly used VPN services, whether or not they're stateside. If you're from the US, you're told to disable your anonymizer. It looks like it's kickinh out foreigners.

The blockade isn't total. Hulu is currently checking only for specific internet addresses and not the actual presence of a VPN, so if you're on a dedicated VPN address or use a smaller provider, there's a possibility that you'll get around the new limitation. However, that still leaves you in a bind if you're an American relying on a VPN to protect your privacy
