Default PS3 Exclusive: Hulu Plus

As discussed on tomorrow's episode of the GameLounge, a new Hulu service is on the horizon, called Hulu Plus. It will have full seasons of all the shows currently on Hulu and multiple past seasons, too. It will still run ads and cost $10/month. Why would you pay $10/month for something that's barely better than the free service you get on Hulu now?

Well my friends, Hulu is banking on versions that extend beyond the computer screen for that. In July, why Hulu Plus officially launches, it will launch with support for the PS3, the iPad, and the iPhone. Here's the kicker: it won't launch with support for 360. That won't happen until 2011.

How big a win do you think this is for Sony? Are you going to be interested in the new service?

If you're interested, toss your name in the hat for the Hulu Plus Preview Service here. I put mine in and haven't heard back yet, but I would imagine it is much like the OnLive Founding Members program where it's free at least until the real service launches. No harm in that.

UPDATE: Just saw that Hulu Plus for the PSN will require PSN Plus to operate, much like Netflix requires 360's Gold service. This could be a huge stumbling block for potential new subscribers, not sure it's gonna matter all that much to me.

I'm not sure how I feel about this as of now. I don't even know if I would pay for it if I WAS planning on getting PSN+, which is still in debate for me. They need to wow me with something before I'll pay for it.

If it was just me living alone I would just get Hulu Plus and Netflix, thats all the TV I need, not counting sports.
But I will not be getting this from what I have seen so far.

Gonna move this to the Multiplatform forum and change the title because they announced that Hulu will be coming to the 360 as well, so is not a PS3 exclusive.

I think the only plus is watching the stuff on the pod touch/iphone, since netflix has pretty much pwned the rental service. But it is a wait and see.

Yeah, the iPad support will be pretty sweet. I love watching Netflix on the iPad and if its anything like that, it'll be a slam dunk.

Because of the PSN+ requirement? I agree it seems punitive for no good reason, but is it that much different than Microsoft requiring XBL Gold to run Netflix streaming?

Rumor smashed.

With the launch of Hulu Plus there have been many rumors started and we are trying our best to remedy the situation. Specifically to your question, the Playstation Plus service is only a requirement during the preview period.

Once the preview period ends you should be able to download the Hulu Plus app but that will still require the Hulu Plus subscription.

Right now we are limiting the number of users but Hulu Plus will be launching to the public very soon so stay tuned!
PS+ isn't needed to get Hulu Plus.

Well, I'd get a Hulu Plus and Id pay absolutely anything, if they just made it so Hulu wasn't fucking region locked. Christ.

So it turns out! I mentioned it on the podcast we just recorded. PSN+ is required for the preview event, but not the service.
