best vpn to get Hulu and US Netflix?

Howdy,  I'm in Mexico near Puerto Vallarta for the next few months and want to get vpn for US Netflix and Hulu but don't know which vpn service to get.  Does anyone know which vpn most people are using to do this?  Much appreciate your help

Just an FYI, I use a vpn in the US for KODI and Netflix and Hulu will not work when it’s turned on.  Not sure if that’d be different in Mexico.

Netflix and Hulu block vpns.

I use  Unlocator  VPN and have no trouble with Netflix and US TV like CNN and NBC.  It is also really inexpensive!

Hulu finally figured out that people were using VPNs and started blocking them some years ago.  It seems like the "hola" extension for some browsers (including Chrome) used to work with Hulu, but they may be blocking that now as well.  It is worth a try, as it is free and a simple browser add-on.  Check out hola.org for more information.

We use Smart DNS Proxy, working fine for us:) ! We do not have Hulu, however, just Netflix and Amazon, so not sure if it will work with Hulu.

I read using a Smart DNS is a better way.

They will do their best to cut you off has been my experience. Unlock worked for awhile then wouldn't . VPN flat out says it won't work outside Canada and the U.S. So I don't use it. Hulu never worked here. Chrome T.V. plug in worked very well then it didn't. Currently I have Amazon fire, but haven't hooked it up yet. Netflix works on my computer with the cable system I use so that's what I have used the last two years. No hoops to jump through.

Fire may work because I was able to buy it here , which will be nice, because then I can get prime and some other things. I have had  6 years to figure out they all work well briefly, then you figure out some other plan. If you don't draw too much attention, your system will possible work longer. Like packages they ship for awhile then decide they don't ship to Mexico anylonger.

I was planning to use my Fire Stick also.  I read on Amazon's site that you have to do some changes to your Amazon prime account settings and use a Smart DNS or VPN.  But they claim it will work in Mexico.

good to know. We will see, i will be talking to the cable folks to renew pretty soon anyway so i will ask them when i have time. Time is a big issue here.

Gracias, I found a free 14 day trial (no cc) on SmartDNSproxy so gving it a shot.  It's working for Netflix US and Hulu so far but haven't used it much.  Too busy experiencing Mexico to watch tv.  Of course they want a long-term contract after the trial period, only $2/mth,  The question is, how long will it continue to work after entering the contract.  Has anyone had long term experience with Smartdnsproxy?

Hi, I'm new to Expat.com and this is my first post.  If I lived near Lake Chapala, would I be able to get DirecTv Now?  I like live sports and news.  $35/month for 60 channels seems like a pretty good deal.

If I have half the spunk, love for life and learning,  and lucidity you have when I'm your age I will count myself very lucky! You are an inspiration ☺ Keep it up ❤

The fire stick is a yes and a no, some of the things I really wanted were   " sorry not available in your area" so back to netflix for the most part, will keep trying things.
