This is a follow-up to the the article we did on how to get Netflix on your Apple TV in any country including Australia and New Zealand.

The article can be found here: Get Neflix in Any Country

We will now look to: Unblock Hulu Plus for Apple TV

Please make sure you read the above article as we are going to presume you have your Unblock Us account setup and your Router & Apple TV are already properly configured with the DNS setting given.

Step 1: Geo-unblocking

Please make sure you read that article as we are going to presume you have your Unblock Us account setup and your Router & Apple TV are properly configured. This is very important do not attempt to login or sign-up to Hulu Plus until you have everything from the previous article setup. You obviously don’t’ have to include the Netflix steps, unless you want Netlfix. Just the part about setting up the DNS setting from Unblock Us.

Step 2: Signing up to Hulu Plus

Now that you’re “in” the United States, theoretically anyway.

You can go the Hulu Plus website and proceed with the signup process. Just fill in all the details as you normally would, you will need a valid credit card.

The key requirement here is that for Hulu Plus you will need a US credit card, so to get around this we need to use our own credit card that will pass an authorisation test but also make it appear that you have a valid US post code.

The above credit card trick works in this way. You enter in your normal Australian credit card (an American Express card is highly recommended), but for the post code, you have to create one from your own post code – simply add a ’0′ (zero) to the end of your Australian post code (or add a ’1′ to the front), and then check this website to see if it corresponds to a valid US ZIP code.The bank will verify the first 4 digits as been successful and pass the transaction but we need to find a valid 5th digit to make it appear like a US post code.

If it doesn’t work out, then keep trying different numbers at the end until you get one that does.

If you are unlucky and have tried all 9 digits after your real post code and none work then you will have to try any other US post code such as ’90210′. Although it is unlikely that the approving bank will approve a post code that is very different from the real one.

If your credit card was accepted, you should now be able to finish your sign-up process. If it didn’t work, then at the moment, there’s not a lot you can do.

Hulu Plus: Success!

Warning: There is a small chance your credit card may get blocked by your issuing bank for unauthorized use, however a quick phone call will normally fix this up.

    Important: Please use the city and state found by the USPS ZIP code locator as city and state in your billing address. Use your original (local credit card billing address) street address as Vudu validates digits in your address.

    Hello Mark,Unfortunately something has changed with Vudu and can only accept US based Credit cards. However you may still try the steps below to see if it will work for you.Important: Please make sure to set up our service and check the setup before siging up with Vudu as they check your geographical location on signup.We have several reports that Vudu will not accept Canadian credit cards anymore, even if one uses the method below. For these cases, you will need to find an alternate form of payment.Use your own postal address but select any US state and make sure to use a 5 digits ZIP code made out of digits in the postal code of your billing address. Add zeros if you have less than 5 digits in your postal code.Recently Vudu started validating the ZIP codes. You have to find a valid US ZIP code with all the digits in your postal code. We recomend using USPS ZIP code locator: https://tools.usps.com/go/ZipLookupAction!input.action?mode=1&refresh=trueFor example:Canadian postal code L6J4B2 -> 64200 US ZIP code. The ZIP code locator states that the code is invalid.Second attempt: L6J4B2 -> 06420. ZIP locator confirms that the ZIP code is valid and therefore good to use with VuduImportant: Please use the city and state found by the USPS ZIP code locator as city and state in your billing address. Use your original (local credit card billing address) street address as Vudu validates digits in your address.Once your account is established Vudu will bill your credit card for each rental.Hope this information helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
