Hulu, the online media service that allows customers to watch television shows and movies over the internet, and through their PlayStation 3 console, is offering their Hulu Plus subscribers a free week of credit due to the PSN Outage. If you're unaware of the situation, an unauthorized person has accessed PlayStation Network users' personal information including name, address, password, login and possibly credit card data which has caused the service to shut down for over a week now.
In an e-mail sent by Hulu to their customers, the company said, "We understand this is frustrating, and we are looking forward to Sony restoring access to the application as soon as possible. In the meantime, we’d like to offer you a 1-week credit toward your Hulu Plus subscription." For Hulu's full statement that they've emailed to their customers, check after the break.
Unfortunately, due to the outage on PlayStation® Network, Hulu Plus subscribers cannot currently access the application on the PS3™. We understand this is frustrating, and we are looking forward to Sony restoring access to the application as soon as possible. In the meantime, we’d like to offer you a 1-week credit toward your Hulu Plus subscription. In order to automatically redeem your credit, please click here at any time within the next two weeks.
You can still continue to watch your favorite shows on many other devices — the full list of devices is available here. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us directly. We’re happy to help however we can.
