Hulu not working anymore (detected as proxy)?
« on: April 07, 2019, 10:02:34 AM »
I used to connect to an US streaming server like Gotham City and it worked fine for Hulu.
But yesterday in the middle of a show somehow Hulu detected that I use a proxy.
Will this get 'fixed' or I need to cancel my Hulu ? Maybe someone knows a server that still works ?

Services like Hulu and Netflix work to detect proxys and VPNs used by those outside the US. The content owners have different policies per region (US, Europe, etc) so they want you connecting to your local services.

The best advice is to try to connect to some of the other SecureLine servers in the USA to see if any of the others have not yet been blocked.

The number of available servers is very small (3).  :(
Is Avast ever changing the IPs or .. if users complain that they got detected by Hulu, Netflix, etc ? I would assume many users buy the VPN for similar reasons..

Indeed many users buy the VPN for this same reason but Hulu and the content owners are constantly adding new IP addresses to their databases. It’s a sort of cat and mouse game.

Tried today with all 3 US streaming servers, plus a random normal one, all are detected by HULU.
Also tried Amazon Prime & Netflix and they no longer work either.
That's too bad, they used to work with SecureLine (especially Hulu), so I was happy to pay it
