Select PlayStation Plus Subscribers Can Access It Now

The hotly anticipated Hulu Plus service is finally available to a select group of PlayStation Plus subscribers. If you've got access, you'll know it thanks to a message when you turn your system on. If not, you'll be able to download the application and request an invite to the program.

Early posts about the service are generally positive. It's got a few bugs of course, but it's definitely far better executed that the disappointing Netflix service. The user interface is optimized for use with a PS3 controller and doing things like switching picture quality is as simple as tapping R1.

To access the preview, you'll need to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber, but thankfully that's not the case when it comes to the full service. When Hulu Plus launches in full, both Playstation Plus subscribers and non-subscribers will have access. You'll still have to shell out the $10 monthly fee to Hulu Plus of course.
