Hi, so this is my first post so I'll try to make it direct and simple.
So a little back story first. I was trying to use watch Hulu but with the new Hulu with Live TV you need to share your location in order for it to show you what's playing or even access on demand programming. So I did a little bit of research and it finds out there's an option in developers tools hidden that allows you to set a static location.
So first of all you need some coordinates. It could be your physical location or a location of your town. What I did was ask Google for the coordinates of my city.
So I typed "Anytown Coordinates" and you should see a top result with the coordinates. You wanna keep that nearby. Now we can get to where we actually use those coordinates.
- Open Developer Tools.
It's simple all you have to do is press F12 or Ctrl-Shift-I, or if you don't have that key or can't remember the key combo or something, you can open the 3-Dot menu, go to more tools, then click developer options.
2. Open the Sensors Tool
Next click on the 3-Dot menu and go to more tools then click sensors. You should now see a section for geolocation.
3. Input Coordinates
Now all you have to do is click the geolocation drop box and select a preset location orrrr in our case. Use our location that we grabbed earlier. Simply just click on Custom location and then you can type in your Lat and Long coordinates. Then you're done.
Now I believe this only works for the current tab that opened Developer Tools on.
Also you have to have developer tools open at all times while using geolocation. But if you get annoyed with it always hanging there just click the 3-dot menu and choose the first docking option that'll put it in it's window and you can minimize it to tuck it away.
And I believe that's it. If its not finding your location after you reboot or something. It's probably because geolocation got turned off. You can just repeat the steps to turn it back on. It should remember your coordinates.
