How to watch Sailor Moon on Hulu outside the United States

You can access the Sailor Moon episodes streamed online through Hulu from outside the United States using the Hola! browser extension. It works for me here in Canada: I’m currently watching Nana.

Viz will release the franchise digitally with English subtitles starting May 19, followed by the new English dub starting in late 2014. The first four episodes will stream with English subtitles on Viz Media’s NeonAlley.com service and the Hulu service on Monday, and two more episodes will then debut every Monday (via ANN). According to Viz, being available for free is “important to us, because this is such a big title, to have a free option available. Sailor Moon has never been free, legal, and official online here.”

True that! Streaming the episodes online ahead of the home video release is a smart move on Viz’s part as it will generate interest in both the original and new series and hopefully drive sales of the blu-rays and DVDs. No need for fansubbed bootlegs anymore, thank god.

    That is illegitimate, and subject at any time to being thwarted by countermeasures implemented by Hulu. Not a solution for us fans of the show in Canada.

    It certainly is A solution, one which is used the world over to deal with the ongoing problem of US geoblocking. Not ideal, but one that seems to be stable so far.

    I installed the Hola browser, and it still doesn’t let me watch Sailor moon on Hulu.

    I recommended the Hola browser extension, not the Hola browser. Read the Hola FAQ if you have problems (I’m not their tech support).
