According to Bloomberg, Sony and Hulu are in the final stages of signing a deal that will allow for the Hulu service to become available on the PS3. If this is true, the deal could become officially announced next week. Unfortunately, it will be subscription based, and reportedly around $10 a month.
It used to be free some time back, but after people were streaming the service to the PS3 through the browser (or was it through the sharing?), Hulu blocked that access. Now, it appears the two are going to strike a deal. Word is also circulating that the XBox 360 is getting Hulu service as well, presumably for the same subscription price and the need to be a Gold subscriber.
One thing that comes to mind, though, is can this service be free with the PlayStation Plus? It could be, but the difference is, PS+ goes to Sony and the Hulu subscription would go to Hulu, but it’s a possibility nonetheless, maybe a cheaper subscription to Hulu at least? In any case, I probably won’t be getting the service personally. Not much of a TV guy, modern shows are crap (save for shows on the Discovery channels), and I only watch TV before bed :P.
