How to Get Hulu on Apple TV in Canada [May 2021 Updated]

Last updated: May 1, 2021

Having the new Apple TV device for your TV is a significant investment, but what is the point of it when you can’t watch your favourite Hulu shows and movies on it due to geo-restrictions? To relieve you from this trouble, we have the right tactics to make it all possible.

So you don’t have to worry about how to get Hulu in Canada on Apple TV, because this guide will tell you how to do so. It’s no news that Hulu is only available in the US, and it may not expand globally for another year or two, or ever!

Who knows. But we can’t just wait for that long, so we decided to research a bit to figure out the right way to make Hulu in Canada on Apple TV possible. Truth be told, we didn’t have to struggle a lot with our research, because the answer was right there in front of us, a VPN! 

VPNs act as a disguise for your location-based IP address, making it look like you are currently accessing Hulu from the United States rather than Canada. Moreover, it also acts as a protective shield for your online activity and presence, so it’s a win-win situation.

Hulu tends to block out VPNs quite often, but only the best VPNs manage to stay incognito, and so here we will only talk about ExpressVPN

For devices like Apple TV, Firestick, Roku, Xbox, and PS4 that do not support VPN app directly, ExpressVPN offers Smart DNS to set up on these devices to access Hulu.

Below are the techniques you need to follow in order if you want to get Hulu on Apple TV via ExpressVPN.
