Ultimate Duh: Hulu Plus Not Tied to PlayStation Plus

There have been a lot of rumors that have been posted over the past few weeks over whether or not Hulu would be integrated with PlayStation Plus in some form, given the fact that Sony has moved over to a paid subscription model. And they're actually good rumors if you manage to forget that the whole thing is common sense.

Should probably be true, with regular Hulu being offered on PSN in general, but this is as much unsupported conjecture as are the articles saying that PS+ is needed.

hulu website says psn+ is needed for hulu plus...

creatchee3964d ago

That kinda sucks. I was hoping that Hulu would be included with the PSN+ Subscription.

It's not like you don't get enough content/value out of PSN+, but Hulu functionality would really sweeten the deal and maybe knock a few people off of the fence onto the subscriber side.

Sony needs people to buy Playstation plus and the only way to do that is with these kinds of services. Free games alone isn't going to do it.

I think they gave people PS+ to give them an option.

its hard to say right now, we dont know whether we will have to pay also IF its psn+ only, its up to them whether its worth it or not how much they will make having 30+ million people able to subscribe to hulu right off the bat (all psn users) compared to how much they will make having it a few million psn+ members only at first but PLUS how much hulu will drive PSN+ subscriptions. its not an easy choice. sony need their brains behind this defiantly, also could be a hit or miss decision. lets just wait and see.

having 30 million people accessing hulu for $10 a month could be really profitable depending on how much sony gets out of it.

depending on how much sonys makes off of PSN+ subscriptions (after paying devs and ppl for their free games and services like qore etc.) hulu can drive sales of psn+ and that may be a good thing but IT IS NOT GUARANTEED that it will drive subscriptions and we dont know how profitable psn+ is for sony so...

I don't know if people would find it attractive to pay a subscription on top of another subscription. Hulu Plus on Plus probably wouldn't sway that many people if any at all.

What they need for Plus would be good deals and features that people didn't think they needed, but become very attracted to.

You may not be privy to this highly classified piece of information but Sony has been providing free services, such as dedicated server multiplayer for some time.

Alot of PS3 gamers haven't been buying this PSN+ membership, I can tell you that right now.

We aren't stupid, you know.. :)

tinybigman3964d ago

because it made sense for me.

ER-AM3964d ago (Edited 3964d ago )

You're absolutely correct. People are stupid if they buy PSN+. You can't say it any better than that.

Of course, people who buy PlayStation+ (abbreviated as PS+) are still up for debate. Of course, they do get a point in their favor for knowing what it's called.

EDIT: My hopes are low, but I gotta be me. And I thought it was funny. Looks like you did too. So bubbles for being intelligent enough to read the whole thing.

I wonder how many poeple will fail to read and understand your entire comment before disagreeing lol

TheBuIIetSponge3964d ago
