PS3 gets Hulu Plus service

Written by David Stellmack


Only for PlayStation Plus subscribers
As we reported recently, Sony announced that PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to get access to Hulu Plus for an additional $9.99 per month. The Hulu service on PS3 is live now, beating Microsoft to the punch.

Apparently, the caveat that it is only for PlayStation Plus subscribers will be dropped at some point in the future, but it will still cost users an additional $9.99 per month. While the access to Hulu Plus is being currently described as a preview, those wanting in will have to download the Hulu Plus application and then request an invite to the preview.

It was originally thought that Hulu Plus would arrive first for Xbox 360 owners, but Hulu then announced that it would arrive on the PS3 first with an Xbox 360 offering in early 2011. Sources tell us that Microsoft is working with the Hulu folks by spending extra time to get the application to better integrate with the dashboard and provide a look and feel that is similar to existing applications for the dashboard, which we believe means closer to the current Netflix application for the Xbox 360.
