How to watch Hulu from outside the US

I was doing some content searches today and came across TV Paradise, located at

The site is essentially Hulu minus only the promotional banner that scrolls at the top of the browser.

What the hell?

I don't understand how a bizarro-hulu like this can exist. It has literally all of Hulu's content, presented in exactly the same fashion, with the same exact search filters. The only difference is that it doesn't provide accounts for users.

This can't possibly be legal, so Hulu must either be using this as another platform to promote their content, or unable to shut the site down.

Whatever the moral issues here, TV Paradise has a prominent message advising those outside of the US to use an app called "Hotspot Shield" to access the videos (Hulu, of course, is only licensed to distribute their content in the US right now).

So, Hotspot Shield (an application which I have never used and therefore do not endorse) is apparently the answer to watching Hulu from lands near and far. It claims to hide your online identity. I assume it will work on Hulu, but if it doesn't, there s always bizarro Hulu...for now.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Today I trapped on this site:
[url=] - Ps3 Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online sports game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only and but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
