Sony PlayStation3 owners in the US will be able to access the Hulu Plus VOD service, Sony has announced. For the time being, the agreement between Hulu and Sony is exclusive and excludes Microsoft XBox and Ninento Wii until the end of the year.
All PlayStation Plus subscribers may download the free Hulu Plus application from the PlayStation Store and, within it, request an invitation to the exclusive preview. If accepted, the viewer can access Hulu Plus for an additional $9.99 (€7.7 ) per month.
As Hulu Plus becomes generally available in the coming months, all PlayStation 3 users in the US will be able to download and subscribe to the full Hulu Plus service and it will also be available on wide range of Sony Electronics internet-connected entertainment devices, including select BRAVIA TVs and Blu-ray Disc players.
Hulu Plus is Hulu’s new subscription service offering full current season runs of hit TV programs from ABC, FOX and NBC, adding even more premium video content to the more than 23,000 movies and TV episodes already available on the PlayStation Store.
