    Hi All, I live in the UK and cannot subscribe to Hulu Plus given that I don't have a US credit card. Would anyone consider sharing an account for which I will pay by paypal? If you are on the west coast then the time difference will mean that we would practically never use this account at the same time.

    How were you planning to use Hulu in the UK? Proxy? I'm moving overseas soon (outside the US) and want to be able to use Hulu.

    Without a US Credit card, how have you created an netflix account?

    I used entropay virtual card (which doesn't work anymore though), but some non-US cards work sometimes and they also had paypal option at some point but not sure if it's still there.

    That's unfortunate. Are you using a US zip code (netflix requires a US address)? Also some banks check billing info during transactions and wont let the transaction through when they see US address. I had that problem with my UK card when I tried.

    Is hulu really worth all the hassle? I'm just curious.

    Hi, i would love to share a hulu plus account with you folks. I don't think it would matter if more than one person use it at once. would you guys be willing to split the cost.

    thanks

    Not sure if they check different IPs. But I tried last night and had Hulu+ going on 2 different PS3s and on my iPad. So yes you can have multiple instances going at once. But if someone stops watching in the middle then the other person next time they get on will see the do you want to resume episode message. Not a big deal just click no and move on.

    sounds good.....you already have an account....would you mind if i share it with you...i can pay you each month via paypal. let me know. also, i dont have an ipad or ps3 or any of those kinds of devices, i would only be streaming it on my computer, does that make any difference to the situation you described earlier?

    This thread should be in the Marketplace since it's dealing with a financial transaction between members, but the OP doesn't yet have enough posts, so closing.
