US-based HULU wants to re-set my location?

We have a US-based Hulu account. The first 5 weeks the HULU account worked great then it stopped working suddenly a few days ago. The US-based HULU account says that my location needs to be updated. I had the VPN and Host Name thru Dynu to show I was in the US and had no issues the last 5 weeks. When I click on to update the Hulu account I get an error message....

I access HULU as an app on an Apple TV box. All the other apps work fine, Disney +, Amazon Prime...

Does anyone have any insight why suddenly my US-based HULU stopped working? What do I need to do to fix it? Maybe I'm outta luck and HULU got smart detecting my real location...?

Re: US-based HULU wants to re-set my location?

Never seen that - I however have a VPN from my router to a buddies house in Maine, and then I broadcast an SSID called America and I just sign all my devices into that, on my AppleTV all my Apps works HBO, HULU, Showtime, Netflix, Disney +, etc...

but haven never seen that warning.

I think I get by as my IP shows as a residential IP in Maine. They haven't caught onto that yet!
