Posted on June 30, 2010, Ron Whitaker Hulu Plus to Require PlayStation Plus Subscription?
I’m sure that this news won’t make a lot of PlayStation owners happy. It seems that if you do a Google search of the terms “PlayStation Plus” and “Hulu Plus,” you’ll see the following text in the snippet Google provides:
Note: You must be a subscriber of the PlayStation Plus Network
This text doesn’t actually on the page that the search result returns, which is right here. Technologizer.com is reporting that if you have a Hulu Plus preview invite, you can see this text on the Devices page linked above.
No one was surprised that Microsoft was requiring Gold subscriptions for this feature, but I think a lot of us (including me!) were expecting Sony to give the penny-pinching a pass like they did on Netflix.
No word yet on Sony’s response, but we’ve contacted them for comment. More to come if they have a response.
