    Interesting way of doing things. Can you set up a US iTunes account without having a US address though?

    Cool. I did read something a whole back but didn't see the point in doing it back then.

    Just subscribed to Hulu+

    Very easy to set up
    Good selection of TV shows (65+) (way better than Netflix)
    Films OK (about as good as Netflix)
    Streaming, much quicker than Netflix
    Based on content for me, I'll be cancelling Netflix next month...sky next month too???

    Dexter doesn't show at all when I search the website link you posted?

    Nor Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, plus a few other shows I watch. Not going to bother personally. Cheers for the info though.

    OK, I got Hulu working by setting up an iTunes US account and using Unblock-US (despite comments on PocketLint saying it wouldn't work).

    I can get Fringe, but only the last 5 episodes of season 4! What's the deal here? How long after the US network airing do episodes appear on Hulu?

    Also, I can't believe I'm forced to watch MacDonalds ads!

    Does Hulu have iPad/Phone apps as well? I don't have a US account but nothing is showing on the UK AppStore.

    You can get the Hulu app for iPhone or iPad if you have an account with the US store. You won't see it on the UK store

    It will show up if you have a US itunes account. It was the same for netflix before it officially launched in the UK.

    As said above, it works for me with the assistance of Unblock-US.

    I have it with us unblock and I've got a weeks trial.

    I won't be continuing with it though, not enough content I enjoy

    Netflix does look better than Hulu. Netflix US had Captain America (2011) this week. If you can switch between UK and US proxies you get an even greater range of material.
