A few years ago Hulu was said to have almost closed a deal with Ireland, but in the end because of contract issues the deal fell though and Hulu fans abroad went back to square one.

Most of the people trying to watch the BBC iPlayer outside The UK are British folks away from home for a bit. That’s not true of people trying to watch Hulu in The UK. Many are UK residents that just enjoy American TV.
