Viewing issues

“Want to watch a show?”


“Let me see what I can find.”

Anyone who travels outside of the US have any issues viewing television or movies on your preferred viewing platform?

When I was in Canada a few weeks ago I was going to try to catch up on a TV show that I watch when I went to Hulu and couldn’t get it to play my shows. I could get to the screen to launch the show, but as soon as you get to the page that typically has the episodes listed it didn’t display any episodes. Was this an issue with Hulu? Was it because it was a TV show?

I didn’t have any issues with Netflix or Disney+, just Hulu (and I didn’t try Amazon Prime).

It just seemed very weird to me as I would have thought that I would be able to access the content no matter where I was in the world. Maybe I was wrong.

What say you, oh world of wise tech folks and blogging friends?

    I’ve honestly never tried viewing any of my streaming services from abroad, although I suppose my experience might be different if I ever traveled for business.

      Thanks for the response. I suspected you might have some insight, but then you usually have lots of things planned to do and see. So, you probably don’t spend much time in the hotel room hanging out. I wouldn’t either, other than it was cold, dark, and I had mostly “been there, done that.” LOL

    I don’t use streaming services & I don’t travel. I got nothing.

    Have you tried “Googling” that? Not saying you should USE Google, specifically…just using the term.

      No, I haven’t Googled it. I suppose I could, but it was more fun complaining about it and I found another service to entertain me anyway.
