Hulu now publically available kind of

Hulu has left private beta and is now publically available to US-consumers which is definitely a good thing. Users can just go and visit the official Hulu website and browse the contents and play anything they like in their browser. Hulu does have a good selection of movies and tv episodes from popular media companies like Fox, Universal Pictures, Sony or MGM.

The selection of tv shows is actually pretty good. You get to see Animations like The Simpsons and Family Guy, Crime & Mystery like Bones or Team Knight Rider but also pretty old - but still cool tv shows - like Simon & Simon or Emergency Room. Should be something for everyone, great if you do not know what to do for a certain amount of time.

Users from outside the United States, for example US citizens traveling to Europe or another location, can use the free application Hotspot Shield to view Hulu content even if they are abroad. Check out my article on accessing Hulu - and other services - using Hotspot Shield.

    I tried hotspot shield but between the advertisements and bandwidth limitations it wasn’t worth the price. I’ve been using Surfbouncer ( to accomplish this without any limitations.

    “Hulu has left private beta and is not publically available to US-consumers which is definitely a good thing.”

    Who finds the typo? :-)
