    Hulu and other sites use IP filtering to block content from viewers in other countries unfortunately, so it is not a software issue on your AppleTV it's an intended service block from those companies. You would need to run iVPN or a similiar VPN solution to spoof a US IP address at either the device or your router to access those services.

    I'm not sure about the config of the AppleTV - can you enter details to connect to a VPN? The simple solution to access Hulu.com from Europe / UK on my MBP is to use a US based VPN (Virtual Private Network). More details here: http://www.vpntelevision.com

    A VPN basically creates a secure tunnel from your computer to a local American ISP. The VPN then gives you a new US based IP address - and it appears as if you are physically in the USA.
