How to Avoid Commercials on Hulu

By Anne Baley

Hulu is a growing website that shows episodes of popular television series and full movies online for free, as of time of publication. Hulu makes money by showing you short 30-second commercials throughout each episode or movie. While this is much less commercial time involved than cable or broadcast television, you may want to avoid commercials entirely. Fix your browser in minutes so you never have to watch a commercial on Hulu again.

Step 1

Download the Firefox browser from Mozilla if you don't already have it installed in your computer. Install Firefox and open it.

Step 2

Go to the Firefox extensions page and install "AdBlock Plus."

Step 3

Right click on the "AdBlock Plus" icon on the right side of your task bar to pop up the configurations page. Add "*" and "http://**", minus the quote marks, to the list of filters.

Tips & Warnings

  • You will still have short breaks in your show, but you won't see any commercial messages.
