Expat Tech: Watch Netflix and Hulu from Argentina

I had previously written about downloading or streaming US television shows and movies while in Buenos Aires, but as that article is now almost a year and a half old, I’ve been meaning to get around to updating it.  In the time since I wrote that post, I’ve switched to a new solution that I love. (Hint: it involves a new Mac Mini with HDMI, Automatic and Plex.)

Anyhow, that updated post is going to take a little more time to finish, but TechCrunch just recently posted an article about how to stream Netflix from outside of the US and I thought that was worth passing on. With this solution, you can stream Netflix movies outside of the States without having to keep a VPN connected all the time.  This should significantly improve performance.

As an added bonus, on Reddit there is a recent article about how to watch Hulu from outside of the US and without using a proxy server.  This hack involves a Firefox plugin and a little more technical know how, but it may work for you.

Now to get back to watching the season premier of Jersey Shore
