Hulu’s subscription-based Hulu Plus service on the PlayStation 3 will not be requiring a PlayStation Plus subscription.
Following up on earlier discoveries that suggested otherwise, Hulu’s now clarified that a PS Plus subscription “is only a requirement during the preview period” and not when the streaming video service launches to the public.
No word on when exactly that might happen though; “very soon” is all they’re saying.
“Right now we are limiting the number of users but Hulu Plus will be launching to the public very soon so stay tuned!”
The service was last week confirmed for the Xbox 360 as well, for ‘early 2011’.
