Remember when I told you that Microsoft had said that the premium-priced Hulu Plus was coming to the Xbox 360 at some point? Well, Hulu themselves said it was also going to be on the PlayStation 3, and guess what? It already is. Starting today, the preview of Hulu Plus is available on the PS3 in the US. And according to Sony, it's going to be the only console featuring it this year, which I take to mean that Hulu Plus won't be on the 360 until next year.
Only select PlayStation Plus subscribers can access the preview of Hulu Plus, though. Just download the free app from the PlayStation Store, and within it, request an invitation to the exclusive preview. If you're accepted, you can start watching, but remember, it's $9.99 a month. Of course, as Hulu Plus becomes fully available, all PS3 users will have access to it, but again, you're gonna have to pay. And I'm still not sure that streaming Hulu in HD on my TV is really worth $10. We'll see if people go for this.
