You may be wondering why you’d need a VPN when you can just use Amazon’s CCCam server instead.
Amazon provides an AWS VPN to use with its Alexa-enabled devices.
Amazon says it supports “more than 100 devices with the AWS VPN API” for a total of more than 500 devices.
The service costs $99 per year for unlimited bandwidth and includes a 30-day money back guarantee.
Amazon has also been cracking down on VPN providers, requiring them to block access to certain services and blocking access to services that don’t work with its service.
You can also choose to block certain types of VPN traffic, but you’ll need to make sure the VPN is one you actually want to use.
Here’s how to stream Hulu from a Netflix-enabled VPN.
Connect your Netflix-connected Amazon VPN account to your computer.
You’ll need the VPN to be active on your Netflix account to watch Netflix-supported shows, movies, and music.
To access Hulu on Amazon’s Cloud Player, head to the Cloud Player Settings menu and select Settings.
To make sure you have the correct IP address, click on the IP address box and then enter the IP addresses you see in your network’s DHCP range.
Click on the Change IP address tab.
Click Add New Subscription.
Enter the Amazon VPN username and password, which will be different depending on your VPN account.
Enter an Amazon VPN server IP address and click the Add Subscription button.
Choose the amount of bandwidth you want to stream, and click Set subscription amount.
Enter a port number and click Add.
Enter your VPN username, password, and an Amazon Cloud Player username and the password for your Amazon VPN Server IP address.
Click OK to close the Settings screen.
If you haven’t already, check the box to enable Cloud Player access.
To start streaming Netflix-backed Hulu, head into the Cloud player and select the Netflix app, then select the Hulu menu item.
Click the “Load Video” button to begin streaming.
When you’re done, you’ll see the Hulu icon on the top right corner of the screen.
If all goes well, you should see the Netflix logo appear in the bottom right corner.
Repeat steps 5-7 for the Netflix-specific Hulu video.
If things go smoothly, you can watch Hulu from your Amazon Cloud player without ever having to enter a VPN username or password.
If something goes wrong, you may be unable to stream. 1 / 2
