Disney Plus UK is best known for its roster of Marvel and Star Wars content, but the whodunnit series Only Murders in the Building has proven a huge hit for many different audiences.
Only Murders in the Building stars Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez. The series follows three people who live in the same apartment complex in New York and are drawn together by their mutual love of true crime podcasts. When a neighbour mysteriously dies, the three team up to try and figure out what really happened.
The first season wrapped last year, and now the trio are back once again when another murder rocks the residents of the Arconia Building. If you want to watch new episodes as soon as they are released, then here is what you need to know.

How to watch Only Murders in the Building on Hulu in the UK
Only Murders in the Building season two is also available on Hulu in the US.
Hulu is geo restricted to users outside of America, but you can sign up for it with the help of a VPN. This can trick websites into believing that you’re accessing the internet from a different country. For streaming Hulu, this would be the US.
Of course, there is a disclaimer: this is against Hulu’s terms of service, as it violates the platform’s content licensing agreements. Proceed at your own risk.
There are many VPN options out there, but we recommend either NordVPN or Surfshark – and you should check out our full best streaming VPN ranking if you want to take a look at the rest of the competition.
To watch Only Murders in the Building, sign into your VPN service and select a US server – most VPNs should let you pick the location of your IP address – then head to the Hulu website.
It’s worth remembering that you’ll still need a Hulu account to watch anything, and Hulu itself isn’t free. Fortunately, it isn’t too expensive – you can pay either $6.99 per month with some ads, or $12.99 with no ads at all. New subscribers can get their first month entirely for free.
Unfortunately, there is one more complication. Hulu sometimes blocks non-US credit cards – so if you don’t already have an account and want to set one up, it might reject your attempts to sign up.
If so, there’s an easy workaround though. Walmart sells Hulu gift cards, for either $25 or $50, which allow you to create an account with no credit card at all. Walmart simply emails the code to you, which you can then use to set up your account. You may also need to get a US address and phone number to sign up, but you can get hold of those for free online.
If the payment information goes through successfully, you should be able to sign into Hulu and watch Only Murders in the Building a week early.
