Rumour – PlayStation Plus needed for Hulu Plus PS3

Technologizer’s discovered that PlayStation Plus might be required for the recently announced Hulu Plus for PS3.

The source code from the Hulu site 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 source code from the website also shows a “PlayStation 3 Activation Procedure”, where users are asked to redeem a code onto the PlayStation Store to use the service.

Not to mention that when you put a year-long sub of PS Plus and how much Hulu costs per month together, it would come to $170 a year, as mentioned by Kotaku.

SCEA hasn’t formally revealed anything on how the service would work on PS3, nor has Hulu, but it did tell VG247 last night that details were coming “shortly.”

Hulu Plus comes to PS3 next month, with a 2011 release for Xbox 360.
