I tried the YT premium trial. After I cancelled, I'm pretty sure that I have more "frequent" ads. Before the trial, I didn't have those mid-video ads which count down. Guess that's what you get for being a stinge.

Wow. It got me counting. I need to rationalize. Insane. Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Showmax, Spotify, Xbox Game Pass PC, EA Subscription. And probably miss something. (And I exclude the Dstv I pay for my mom)

Nope - they have been escalating their war on free users. Never subscribed and the ads have been skyrocketing. Multiple mid video ads. Multiple ads before.

I just pay my Hulu subscription with a paypal account linked to my credit card. Then with Hulu subscription you can sign up for other packages (such as the Disney+ and ESPN package (for those two added onto my Hulu sub it costs me an extra $5.
Wait, what? How please?

I logged onto paypal.com using a VPN (set to the US) and created an account using a US address and then also put down that my nationality was United states - I was even able to do this using my south African co.za email address. I then just added my credit card on to the account for online purchases.

Then went onto Hulu (again with a VPN set to the US) and created an account for Hulu and then when it asks for how you would like to pay, you just choose paypal.com and load your email address used and password and then your account should be up and running.

You however will either constantly need to use a VPN when viewing Hulu/Disney+/Espn or use a smartdns.

I use smartdnsproxy on my router so I don't have to constantly run a VPN.

Must say that getting Hulu setup with payment was a tad bit harder than Netflix and CBS but I eventually got it set up and now after about three years have not had any issues with it.

Not if you're in the UK like Mephisto. A bag of chips cost about R80 there and that R40 is half the cost of a pint.

:oops:

Jesus, where the fvck where you buying those chips from?

Portion of chips in a fish and chip shop is £1.90 (today's exchange rate makes that R38 and change) in the one local to me.

I probably use Syncler and Cinema HD more than all of the streaming services I pay for (except Sky).
