Bloomberg: Sony Corp. is close to an agreement to carry a paid TV service from Hulu LLC on its PlayStation 3 video-game console, two people with knowledge of the talks said.
good news for ps3 owners, i miss those hulu commericals with alec baldwin, they were hilarious!
lol guess they got sony and ms mixed up in that pre e3 news
I was thinkin the same thing... good news for ps3 owners if this is true
i hope its not USA only since you cant watch hulu outside the US
Whoa, didn't see this coming.
Did you read the article they also said they are in talks with Microsoft as well to bring it to their console as well. Anyways this is good news sucks that you have to pay but kinda worth it since you get to watch it on your TV as oppose to a computer.
I'd think it would only be for the US due to licensing issues. But I'm in the US so I'm fine with that :)
hmmm. i watch hulu on my tv with the ps3 web browser, am i missing something here? most likely, someone wanna fill me in?
they should just sign on to get google chrome and that would be more cost efficient...at least i think so
I don't understand why people don't just hook their PC's up to a tv...
iknow right thats actually wat i do. those cables arent expensive u can actually get one off amazon for like 7 buks
If it comes with PS+ I might buy it. But I'm not paying $10 per month for Hulu
That's exactly what I was thinking. I have a laptop hooked up to the TV as it is to watch Hulu if I want. It would be more convenient on the PS3, but not enough to justify $10 a month.
Yet you have to pay $50 a year on XBL to get netflix which you already pay for and my gusse is Hulu will be the same way. Hulu has been looking at making a streaming service that gets you more content for a long time now and you will have to still pay to get it on your PC as well. As long as you don't need to be a PSN+ user to get the Hulu App then that is good. Also if they can pull this off before MS that will be huge. Still want Google TV more when it comes out though.
They will get it for the 4 free games per month and 20-50% discount on PSN store items. Who gives a shit about netflix? Thats what the pirate bay is for.
You dont have to pay shit! You choose too.
That is a major deal, if they can implement an app for hulu within the XMB itself (and not just a website link) then it'll be a big bonus for PS3 owners. I think Marius is right, it might be something to add on to the list of PS+ features.
isn't hulu was free?
Hulu won't be free soon. They're planning a subscription service. http://www.google.com/#hl=e...
I got it!!! Hulu saw that a good portion of their traffic is from the PS3, and they figured they can make more money. Thats why they blocked Hulu traffic from about a year or so ago.
Please please Let it come with PSN+ That would be an amazing way to start off the subscription.
Whats PS+.....i hope thats not a paying service because that makes it a paying service like xbox live which i can remember was ridiculed by Sony fans from day 1. So i guess your paying for cross-game voice chat which xbox360 had since day 1 also which should be free lol.
Xbox Live subscriptions are mandatory if you wish to play online. PS+ is completely optional, while the majority of PSN features including superior online play will remain free.
Playstation Plus is an optional (note that word) service that Sony are releasing next week. Online play will remain free for those who do not wish to subscribe and for those who do will be offered £200 worth of downloads per year for a subscription cost of £50 a year.
Clearly this man Hacker must know of something we don't. It's obvious now that Hacker has inside info that Sony will actually double cross us come next week and make us pay to play online. DAMN YOU HACKER AND YOU INSIDER KNOWLEDGE!
@ Hacker The idiocy in your post is quite disturbing brah
Wont be part of PSN +
Ps3 is impressing me by the day. Hulu on PS3 It only does everything.
PS3 operating system feature......oops i guess It doesn't do everything.
it does hacker repellent ill take that over OS anyday
Well said gamerzBEreal17. Id prefer to have a fully functional system any day.
$10 bucks a month lmao did these people forget we live an the internet age?
People don't seem to realise that piracy could mean the death of the very thing they're interested in. I'd rather pay $10 a month and keep the entertainment business alive than have it go bankrupt and be left with nothing.
lol.... piracy isnt hurting anything but the games industry.. back in 2006 (before the near collapse of our economy) i remember reading about the movie and music industry still showing growth even though piracy was going through the roof. i think i know why too. i pirate stuff all the time, but if i find stuff that i truly like i try to buy it (theres just something about physically owning it)- ive found so many artists, tv shows, and movies that i would have had a much harder time expiriencing without downloading them, and you know what? i bought most of them... soo because of piracy ive spent more money on movies music and tv.....
@Mushroomwig So what your telling me is you want to pay for programming that you can watch for free on TV?...............COOL, but when I can DL it for free or use a DVR I'm not paying sorry, I like money too much to waste it.
Why use Hulu when you can Youtube anything?
Because there's getting content, and getting content in 10 minute chunks. Besides, for whatever reason, Youtube is being a real douche specifically to PS3 users. Automatic DL or no.
This is stupid, you could see HULU for free before on the browser, now you know why they took it off.
this is better. its via an app. better than going thru a crappy web browser, like the PS3's web browser...
and here we thought, it was microsoft who was going to do this deal, instead they got an ESPN deal. i guess this is fair...
If its happening hope they have enough sense to offer "paid" or HD quality content through PSN+ while giving everyone else access to any free content...for free. @Pope_John_Paul_II: My honest guess is that, in Hulu's best interests, they should offer it on both PSN/XBL, though MS might likely turn them down because its on PSN.
OMG if this is true!!!!!!!!!!!!! im going to buy another ps3!
who cars, i don't care about all these "services" like netflix,etc i just care about the games.
STFU Britney...and get back to doing nothing. And feed those damn kids.
Make this apart of PlayStation+, and it's a done deal.
paying for the exact same service thats free online? i think ill pass
Really.. whats the point of even having PSN+ If you can't just add hulu into the subscription based model..i've given up..
