Hulu Plus To Bust Through PlayStation 3 Pay Wall

After restricting Hulu Plus — Hulu’s pay-to-play movie and TV streaming offering — to members of Sony’s paid PlayStation Plus service, Sony has decided to tear down that pay wall and let non-paying PlayStation Network members in on the action.

Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog that it will open up Hulu Plus access to all “soon.” The post says to check back next week, when it will reveal the exact date.

This is good news for frugal PS3 owners, but a big fat minus for those who prepaid for multi-month PlayStation Plus access just to get a hold of Hulu Plus.
