As of June 26th, PlayStation 3 owners attempting to access Hulu through the console's built-in, Flash-enabled web browser will find videos blocked and unviewable.

Hulu's terms of service were changed on the 26th, but there are still no specific references to the PlayStation 3. This follows in the footsteps of Hulu blocking Boxee, a third-party solution for viewing web video on a TV. Support for Hulu in Boxee has been off and on.

Engadget notes that this could be a glitch with the PS3's recent 2.80 firmware upgrade, but users are reporting the same error with earlier firmware versions.

Boot up your PS3's and let us know if you're able to watch Hulu videos.

Update: Spong.com is reporting that a possible deal between Microsoft and Hulu for Microsoft to "provide consumers with personalised content and advertising across all media platforms within three years." Could this be the reason for Hulu blocking the PlayStation 3 or just a coincidence?
