A Sneaky Way to Watch Hulu Now

13 Comments

The good folks over at BuzzFeed have pointed out a backdoor way to watch the new Hulu video service — even if you don’t have a beta invite.

Just change the number at the end of this URL to any value between 1 and 1801:

http://www.hulu.com/embed/100

For instance:

http://www.hulu.com/embed/1500 brings up an SNL sketch featuring Alec Baldwin as Tony Bennett (always funny).

http://www.hulu.com/embed/700 is an episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show (dig that theme song).

and http://www.hulu.com/embed/1209 is an episode of Arrested Development.

Whether this is a glitch, lazy programming or intentional is irrelevant at this point, and I’m not going to be the one to call NBC or FOX for comment. So plug in a number and see what comes up!

Update: Could just be my Internet connection, but are the videos stopping part way through for anyone else?

If your outside the US chances are you cant get Hulu to work unless you use proxies or something else, but it often interferes with the stream.
I use http://3click.TV I think its the best site on the web for TV- available everywhere, more shows (complete seasons of everything) awesome stream quality, and no ads-

Download Hotspot Sheild by AnchorFree in order to work around the location issue. Hope this helps. I reside in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and it has worked for me. Enjoy!

They likely have their sites geo filtered cyclepromo. We do it at my place of employment at a major network. Mostly due to contracts about allowing the content into other regions that may have different rights for the media.
