Hulu.com Inspires Internet Encryption Usage

Hulu.com Inspires Internet Encryption Usage
Jason Tan

Asian demand for internet encryption software originally came about because of local government censorship. Chinese wanted more blogging freedom, Thais wanted to watch YouTube, and other citizens with stringent firewalls just wanted to make VoIP calls in peace.

Now, we’re finding another great use for the technology: catching up on the latest American movies and tv shows on Hulu.com. Apparently, at least for some, the price of having to sit through American commercials (not even intended for them) is worth paying for the instant entertainment gratification that unauthorized torrent downloading does not yet provide (at current bandwidth speeds).

Hulu has even insired the creation of virtual private networks and shadow internet protocol addresses. Who says TV makes you dumb?
