Troubleshooting Hulu’s Location Recognition Issues

Second, if you are using a VPN service or proxy server to access Hulu from outsde of the United States, then Hulu will not recognize your location and you will be blocked from streaming content. To fix this issue, disable the VPN or proxy server and try again.

Third, if you are located within the United States but have recently moved to a new location, it is possible that Hulu’s servers may take some time to detect the change in your address. If this is the case, try waiting for up to 24 hours before attempting to stream content again.

Finally, if none of these solutions work then there may be an issue with your internet connection or browser settings that is preventing Hulu from recognizing your location correctly. Try refreshing the page or restarting your browser and then visiting Hulu once again to see if it recognizes your location correctly now.
