PlayStation Plus Needed For Hulu Plus

June 30, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

Hulu Plus, the service revealed yesterday which gives users access to HD videos of some of the most popular shows on TV, will seemingly require PlayStation Plus if you are even contemplating on getting the video service.

On Hulu’s devices page, it reads:

The instructions below will help you install Hulu Plus on your PS3. Note: you must be a subscriber of the Playstation Plus Network.

The above is not stated on the actual devices page, however, a reader sent an image to Kotaku of getting a preview code for Hulu Plus which shows PlayStation Plus is indeed needed for the service.

If you’re planning on getting on Hulu Plus, but not a fan of PlayStation Plus, will you purchase Sony’s PSN premium service just for the Hulu? Share your thoughts via the comments section below.
