How to use Roku Box VPN to watch Hulu or Netflix

Lots of Americans have an access to Hulu or Netflix services and can enjoy American TV channels, programs, series and tones of other video. But travelling outside the USA you cannot watch sites like Hulu and Netflix because these services require USA IP address. Now a big number of users use roku box device for Hulu and Netflix streaming. However it cannot help you when you are outside the states. In this case Roku Box VPN is a great solution.

VPN is a secured channel from your PC to vpn server that is located in the United States or other country. It lets to hide your real IP and shows an IP address of your vpn server. So when you are under the roku box vpn you have United States IP so it looks like you are in America.

Roku VPN is perfect but this device does not have any vpn client so to use roku vpn you also need some wireless router to connect to vpn server. For example you can use Buffalo Airstation WHR-HP routers.

Another solution is using flash router instead of wireless. It allows you using a roku box VPN from anywhere.

There is also another alternative to watch USA TV abroad with roku vpn. You can set up your Roku box so that it "goes through the PC", which is where the VPN is providing the 'tunnel'. For this you
have to use ICS (Internet Connection Sharing), a standard Windows
feature that 'shares' the connection your PC uses.

So, the Roku connects to the PC, rather than your router. The connection can be the next: Roku > PC hardwired, PC > Router Wireless. When you enable the Roku VPN
on the PC, the Roku goes along for the ride through the VPN enabled
wireless connection.

So Roku vpn gives you full access to premium Hulu and Netflix content that is usually allowed only to US citizens.
