One of the most valid complaints about Hulu has been its lack of availability outside the United States. But the company is now at least acknowledging international users, rather than giving them error messages, reports Emily Turrettini on WatchingTV Online. She got the message below when she tried to use the online television service from Switzerland this morning.

  1. Well, it’s a year later and they’ve dropped their facade of pretending to care. It’s back to the old “You can’t watch this video” screen with no apologies and no email form. Screw Hulu.

  2. I am a US soldier and I have been in Iraq for 14 months there was a few times I was able to watch shows from Hulu here and we dont get a lot of choices of what we can watch here so please try to get it working here soon

  3. Oddly, this comes not long after Hulu coders reportedly worked an all-nighter to make a version of their Flash video player that would work internationally, to stream Dr. Horrible.

    (Although there have been reports in recent days that international viewing of that show has vanished once again.)
