With Getflix configured correctly, go to the Hulu website. If you get a message that states Hulu is not available in your country, then it means Getflix is not configured correctly.
If you've checked your configuration and it's still not working, log a Support Ticket and we'll help you out.
Click on the "UPGRADE" link, this will take you to the following page.
Click on the "Try 1 Week Free" button to access the sign up form as shown below. Fill in the form and be sure to remember the password you choose here, as you will need it to log in to Hulu Plus in the future.
Submitting the form should take you to the page shown below. Click on the "Upgrade: Try it Free" button. This will take you to the form where you enter in your payment details.
The credit card trick works in this way. You enter in your normal credit card (an American Express card is highly recommended), but for the ZIP code, you have to construct a 5 digit ZIP code from your own post code - simply add a "0" (zero) to the end of your post code (or add a "1" to the front), and then check this website to see if it corresponds to a valid US ZIP code. If it doesn't, then try a different number at the end until you get one that does. If none works, then use the time-tested "90210" (but it's usually better if it's based on your real post code).
One additional consideration when choosing a ZIP code is that some US states have sales tax. The following states don't have sales tax: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon - and so you may want to choose a ZIP code from one of these states, if you don't decide to use a ZIP code based on your actual post code.
If your credit card was accepted, you should now be able to see the welcome screen as shown below. If it didn't work, and trying other ZIP codes didn't work either, you may need to use a prepaid credit card. The best option is to head to the good old post office and grad a Load and Go prepaid credit card. Here is an interesting article about using prepaid credit cards to access US-based services.
