Hulu and Pandora outside USA

Back in 2009 I wrote up a short guide to using Hulu outside USA. I stopped using it and the necessary voodoo has changed slightly. Since that post is so old I’ve decided to write a new one with the necessary updates.

My approach is different to what most people do. The goal is to access Hulu and Pandora from outside USA, so obviously we have to use a proxy of some kind. However I don’t want to proxy all my traffic through the USA, as then I would not be able to access Australian specific content. So what I have is a few hacks on my router that tell it to forward only Hulu and Pandora traffic through my USA server.
