Hulu Coming to Canada, UK and Australia
While still a rumour at this point, I couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of having Hulu come to Canada. Currently, I have to cheat using VPN services and good proxies just to see the shows I want to watch. Sites with the Hulu videos embedded in them, might as well be a wasteland to me as I am unable to play any of them without jumping through the previously mentioned hoops.
In a recent interview with TechCrunch, Hulu’s CTO implied that they are currently working on making the videos available internationally but was mum on the subject of when it will officially be launched outside the US. It’s been said that the only thing preventing Hulu from streaming videos in other countries are the rights holders. No word yet from Hulu so let’s just wait and see if they ditch the drop down menu and go global for real.
My main question now is, how much content will other countries see? I know most of the visitors here are from the USA, but you might be surprised to know that not many of the writers on Forever Geek live in the USA. Currently, every other major video provider online has crippled the Canadian access to the service. We only get certain content, and it is never as good.
A shame really since there are so many great services, and so much great content.
