US internet TV service Hulu has confirmed it’s to give Hulu Plus members a week’s worth of free credit thanks to the ongoing PSN outage.

In a note sent to some Hulu Plus subscribers (via Kotaku), the company said:

Dear XXXX,

Unfortunately, due to the outage on PlayStation® Network, Hulu Plus subscribers cannot currently access the application on the PS3™. We understand this is frustrating, and we are looking forward to Sony restoring access to the application as soon as possible. In the meantime, we’d like to offer you a 1-week credit toward your Hulu Plus subscription. In order to automatically redeem your credit, please click here at any time within the next two weeks.

You can still continue to watch your favorite shows on many other devices — the full list of devices is available here. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us directly. We’re happy to help however we can.

Many thanks,

The Hulu Team

Please note: No personal Hulu Plus account information was compromised as part of the Sony intrusion.

It’s unclear whether or not this offer is being made to all Hulu Plus PS3 subscribers at the moment.

PSN was taken offline last Wednesday thanks to a data hack.
