Hulu Plus available to all PS3 owners next week

Hulu Plus, Hulu’s premium subscription television/movie streaming service, has been available to PlayStation 3 owners since July… as long as they’re PlayStation Plus subscribers. 

But starting next week, Sony has revealed that Hulu Plus will be available as a download for all PlayStation 3 owners. The Hulu Plus service — which is still in “preview” — is subscription-based, and costs $9.99.

I’ve been a subscriber to Hulu Plus since July, accessing it from the “video” section of my PS3’s XcrossMediaBar. As someone who ditched cable well over a year ago, I’m actually really enjoying having quick access to shows I love on my television. 

If you already subscribe to cable and have a DVR, this service might not be for you. But if you watch a handful of shows that Hulu offers (enough to justify it’s $9.99 monthly price tag), I’d say it’s worth checking out.
