Hulu Plus goes invite-free, comes to PlayStation 3, Sony TVs and Blu-Ray players
Hulu has announced that it will start making its Hulu Plus subscription service available to anyone who wants to try it, removing the previously existing barrier of needing an invitation to subscribe. Hulu has also revealed that its service is now available on all 2010 Sony Bravia HDTVs, with more Sony connected devices -- including Blu-Ray players -- to get access soon.
Last, but definitely not least, starting next week, all PlayStation 3 owners in the US who have a PlayStation Network account will be able to download and subscribe to Hulu Plus. This availability will coincide with the release of an updated Hulu application for the PS3.
Hulu Plus costs $9.99 per month and, unlike the free, vanilla Hulu, Plus supports HD streaming, can be used on devices other than a computer (iPad and iPhone included), and has more episodes of each show available (whereas the free version is limited to the newest five). However, both Hulu and Hulu Plus serve ads.
