Hulu Plus: Now for all PS3 users Sony has announced today that Hulu Plus will now be available to 2010 Bravia HDTV owners with BRAVIA Internet Video Link.
That same luxury will be expanded to Sony Blu-ray player, Blu-ray Home Theater System, Network Media Player and DASH owners in the next couple of months.

Notably, Hulu Plus will also be available to all PlayStation 3 users. Until the announcement, you needed to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber to have access to Hulu Plus.

Furthermore, the service will go out of beta/invite next week, with all PSN members having a chance to sign up.

Hulu Plus costs $10 per month and will give you access to complete back catalogs for current shows such as Glee, Family Guy, Saturday Night Live, Modern Family and others.

I bet it needs the PSN to work...and that means that it will not work for most of the PS3 systems owned by the readers of this site.

This is good news. $10 a month isn't terrible and it will give my DVR a break. The hard drive in the DVR is painfully small and HD shows fill it up quickly.

Of course you need PSN. How else would it work?
Ya need 2 PS3's. My 60gb PS3 is fully updated and for $100 I picked up a 80gb PS3 from a pawn shop. The BlueRay drive is broke but doesn't matter when you jailbreak. When or if they figure out how to crack the latest firmware I will replace or fix the drive and resell it. Not ideal for everyone but a second PS3 is definitely nice.

Now they just need to make Hulu Plus FREE to make it worthwhile. ;-)
