Hulu Plus goes public on Sony home theater, PS3
Sony this morning said it would bring Hulu Plus to virtually all of its devices. Every 2010 Bravia TV with Internet either built-in or added on, as well as similar Blu-ray players and home theater bundles, will get access to the $10 monthly streaming service. The company is also lifting the invite-only limit on PS3s and will let all American PS3 owners sign up for TV viewing.
PS3 users who subscribe to the yearly PlayStation Plus service will have Hulu Plus for free, Sony added. A handful of non-traditional media systems are also getting the upgrade, including the Network Media Player and the Chumby-based Sony Dash.
The exact rollout schedule for paid Hulu on home theater equipment hasn't yet been confirmed, but PS3 owners will get full access as of next week. Hulu has said it plans to expand Hulu to more devices but hasn't formally ended the preview period.
