Re: [tor-talk] Hulu now blocks Tor

Hey Joshua,

  That really sucks, man =(  I would send a support request to Hulu
right away.  Particularly if you're a paid subscriber to Hulu, they
should not be blocking you for running a middle relay.  Let them know
that you're not using a proxy or an anonymizer.

  They're likely buying a blacklist (which isn't going to curb much/any
abuse) and not actively trying to block Tor users.

good luck!
