Hulu Plus launches on PS3, exclusive to it until 2011

Posted in News,Technology by Scott Meisner on July 16th, 2010

On July 14 Hulu Plus, the $9.99/month service that grants you access to boatloads of Hulu content on and beyond the PC, launched on the PlayStation 3.  Currently only “a select group” of PlayStation Plus subscribers can gain access to Hulu Plus since it’s still in a preview phase.  Remember, PlayStation Plus subscribers pay an additional $50/year for the recently launch Sony service that provides gamers with exclusive game demos, trials, and other content.  If you’re a member of the PS Plus community you can download the free Hulu Plus application in the PlayStation Store and request an invitation to the preview.  If you’re selected, good for you!  If you’re not selected, and if you’re not a paying PS Plus subscriber, there’s no need to worry.  “As Hulu Plus becomes generally available in the coming months”, all PS3 owners will have access to Hulu Plus.  PlayStation 3 will be the only console-bound home for Hulu Plus through 2010.  It is expected to land on Xbox 360 and Wii sometime next year.  Full PR after the break.
