Hulu Doesn't Like Us

  • I've been an Opera user for quite some time so my browser is loaded with setting, bookmarks, etc. and I love the browser ever since I switched over from Chrome.

    I've also been a Hulu subscriber for quite some time ...as well as Netflix and Amazon Prime as my wife and I found out we could save about $75 a month watching TV through the computer instead of a dish or cable.

    Imagine my surprise when I went by Hulu the other day and I was presented with a big screen saying my browser is no longer supported. I have never run across a site in my history of browsing the Internet that wouldn't let me in because I use Opera. There have been a few sites that have warned me that they don't support my browser but they let me in anyway and I've never experienced a problem. But, apparently, Hulu believes that if they didn't optimize their site for a specific browser, it's not going to work and that's that.

    So, since I have absolutely no interest in changing browsers and/or installing unwanted software on my computers, I canceled my Hulu. Any TV show or movie they have that I may want to see, I can most likely find elsewhere so I don't really need them anyway ...and apparently they don't need us Opera users, either.

    What do you think?

  • Problem solved.

    I found a extension for Opera called User-Agent Switcher. Once that's installed, you can convince other websites that you are user a different browser. In may case, I selected Chrome and Hulu let me right in and everything works fine ...just like I though it would.

    I think the Huluans don't like Chinese:) Or Russians, for that matter;)
