I was a former subscriber. Might try it again. Unsure which payment methods work now, but when I was a subscriber my Aussie credit card was accepted.

    How are people managing to pay for their subscriptions, my Australian cards haven't been accepted for a while, and my backup of buying gift cards from WalMart online has been blocked too

      I buy HULU giftcards from site below
      I then load the card on and when the credit runs out it just cuts me off.. better than auto resubs imho

        Thanks, will look into this

      •  

        Trying to sign up and I can only see it accepting Credit Card or Express (AMEX / Paypal) options for this deal.

        •  

          I encountered the same problem.
          I contacted Hulu customer support and chatted with them.
          It seems, that to get this plan, you'll need to sign-up and use either credit/debit card or paypal first.
          Get on the 0.99/mth plan and then apply your gift card.

          This is what I did (YMMV)…
          1) Sign-up (or in my case reactivate a very old Hulu account)
          2) Use paypal (pre-existing US-based paypal account linked to my NAB credit card)
          3) Sign-in and activate the 0.99/mth plan
          4) Obtained gift card from CardDelivery (thanks jimbobaus)
          5) Applied gift card

        I buy my Hulu gift cards from Target.com (US Target), and they take Australian billing address.

      •  

        So there is no problem loading / redeeming the Hulu giftcards thru the Hulu website using DNS/VPN?

      This thread https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2697115 says that Amex, US PayPal and US iTunes are the go to payment methods. I’ve got an Amex, might try that today and see what happens.

      •  

        I've tried my Amex previously and it didn't work, but will give it another go. Also didn't like my US paypal account either. Could just be me of course…

        Itunes is good but be aware
        you need to have a US account and most likley buy US gift cards
        and HULU charges a higher monthly fee when using iTunes (due to apples percentage)
        I looked into it and found buying Hulu gift cards was the most ecconomical way

      •  

        I do this.
        However it is weird.
        I found that it wouldn't let me sign up with my us PayPal /amex, but would if I had credit on my us iTunes account. It is then happy to keep renewing through iTunes with us PayPal / Amex.
        It just won't let you sign up with it.
        Need to get a US iTunes gift card to start the ball rolling.

        Until your card expires next. It wouldn't work for me a year or so back when my card expired.

        •  

          I must be lucky. I just updated my card details the other day (new expiry) and it was fine.

            @luztra: Weird. The CC thing is so inconsistent with Hulu. But if it still works for you, ride the train baby.

            That being said, I've found having a US Paypal useful anyhow. I've attached it to my Xbox US profile too so I don't have to buy giftcards anymore.

      Thank you for everyone's suggestions. I've tried again using my US paypal account, and it worked first time, so not sure what's changed, but happy to be getting it for $0.99USD per month!

      You can buy gift cards from Target.com with your Aussie credit card and have them delivered by email. Easiest method I’ve found.

      •  

        That's what I do, but when I went to apply the $25 gift card it wouldn't apply the discount and said it would only cover 3 months and 3 days (instead of 12 months like I expected)

    •  

      I am using a Westpac Mastercard for years for Hulu but it didnt work today for a new Hulu account.
      So made a US Paypal with the same card and that is working fine now with the new Hulu account.

  •  

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you have to have your VPN on to watch this too, not just for the signup process? Bit of a bummer, I use Nord and it's fine for streaming to a PC but not fast enough for a smart TV for some reason.

    I'm trying to sign up using 28Degrees card. Comes up with "We could not complete your request right now. Please try again later." Who knows if not accepting my card or something else.

    •  

      Have you tried with your VPN turned on? I think i had that issue one time because it wasn't on (used a gift card)

      US Paypal account connected to the 28 degrees card. That's how I pay for it, They tightened up on it a while back. People who claim it works simply have been doing it for a while and just not had their CC expire yet.

      •  

        must be this. just tried with new dummy paypal acc and brand new 28degreed card and getting the same "cannot complete" message

        Nope, just signed up, using Aussie Amex, . there was no Paypal option. I had to enter a zipcode so used my with a trailing 0

        •  

          tried adding the 0 onto the end of my post code but no go. Maybe it just likes those american bank cards like amex and citi…

        •  

          Trailing 0 on my registered postcode for my Amex (non bank issued) worked, whereas a random US postcode wouldn't accept my CC details - thanks!

        • +1 vote

          Trailing 0 worked with qantas amex. Thank u

        •  

          I look up a zip code that has no sales tax (there are 5 states). A lot of states now charge streaming tax (aka Netflix tax). They don't seem to check if it's the correct billing zip or not - but what ever zip you put in, make sure you remember/save it somewhere since their customer support chat ask for the email and zip code.

          • +1 vote

            @Akya: Yeah I remember one of the credit card companies (possibly Amex) told me that trick. for Zipcode use your postcode & add a zero.

            I believe what happens is they submit your provided info to say Amex who comes back with a Correct/Not correct. Amex sees you've got 4 digits, they've provided 5, so it ignores the last digit and pases back a "correct".

            But it also might help that my postcode+0 is a legit zipcode. where as say 30000, 20000, 40000 aren't.

    Does it work ok with getflix? Got the lifetime subscription 😀

  •  

    Just a heads up too if you're watching through a chromecast, since the new Hulu launched you'll need to block GoogleDNS in your router.

    •  

      Don't quote me on it too, but I think you can't do that if you have a Telstra router as well. We have cable and I've found some networking features are missing that we've had on previous routers.

      •  

        yeah, you might need another router and then put your Telstra modem into bridging mode (so it's just a modem). I found it really helped with cable to get a more stable & faster network connection & I was able to block Google DNS & sped up my linux distro downloads.

          how were you able to pay through paypal? when I go to sign up to the deal it only gives the option to put your credit card/debit card details in

          scratch that, found it once it loaded it properly.
          now for some reason paypal is saying it "cant setup pre approved payments at this time"
          stumped again

    Game of thrones is on hulu, right? I used if for few years ago.

  •  

    Ooh. am already a subscriber but can always make a new account.

    Any idea if you can add the option to remove ads on top of this deal and still retain the discount? The ads on Hulu are annoying as all hell.

    I have noticed Hulu seems to be more cognisant of the DNS unlocker recently on my Xbox, every now and then it will refuse to work given the DNS, but eventually comes around - it hasn't really worked at all on my Samsung smart TV of late.

  •  

    I’m in the US right now. Worked for creating account but wouldn’t accept my Aus visa or MC.

  •  

    Currently been paying $5.99/mth for the last however long but just re-subbed with an older account and worked a charm using my Citibank debit MC.

    Thanks for posting!

    Hey all, does PIA VPN work pretty good with hulu? I seem to struggle a bit with netflix.

  •  

    Is hulu has a lot content? How is it compare to Netflix au?

    • +1 vote

      Different sort of service. It compliments Netflix well. Netflix is like a video store. Hulu is a TV network basically. Shows which are shown on the US networks (except CBS and CW) and some cable channels (Freeform mostly) pop up on Hulu the day after airing. But then they're also like Netflix as they have a large collection of shows and movies and their own original content.

  •  

    Excuse my ignorant but what is Hulu good for that Netflix can't provide?
