Previously, you needed both a subscription to PlayStation Plus, as well as a direct invite from Hulu, to make use of the $9.99 per month Hulu Plus subscription on your PS3. Both of these caveats are no longer the case. As we reported last week, starting today all PlayStation 3 owners can download the Hulu Plus application and sign up for the service.
To sign up after you download the app, head on over to Hulu’s site. You will have to activate your PS3 once you sign up for the service, which is a fairly painless process and is very similar to the process many have already gone through to get Netflix streaming working on the system. So, there you go. Now you have both Netflix and Hulu available, with no roadblocks sans the individual cost of each. You have no reason to cry now because you missed this week’s episode of Glee and your wife made you get rid of cable. Cheer up!
