Hulu Plus available only to PS3 subscribers paying $50 a year

I’ve written articles about the enhancements of Hulu and Netflix a few times in the past (view a list!), so here are some updates for you guys.

With the reveal of its premium Hulu Plus service last month, video streaming site Hulu announced that it would be branching out to devices other than computers, including televisions, Apple devices, and game consoles. Today, Hulu Plus has finally landed on the Playstation 3 — although it isn’t available to all PS3 owners just yet — according to the official Playstation blog.

Currently, Hulu Plus is only available to a select group of Playstation Plus subscribers — Sony’s $50-a-year premium service. Any Playstation Plus subscriber can download the app, but they’ll need to request an invitation to the Hulu Plus preview period to use it. Once accepted, users just need to pay Hulu Plus’s $9.99 monthly fee to access it. Once the preview period is over in a few months, the app will open up to all Playstation 3 users — by which point it should also be available on Sony’s Bravia TVs, Blu-Ray players, and other web-connected devices.

But what “Inception,” which debuts in theaters on Friday, does have is Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, “Dark Knight” director Chris Nolan and enough sharp thinking to sink the Titanic. The big-budget, sci-fi film about a team of freelance dream thieves headed by DiCaprio’s Dom Cobb is no frothy teen dream populated by women in little clothing, men baring their six-pack abs, or robots bashing the pixels out of each other.

BP still working on oil “cap”

Are they seriously still working on this? I’d have figured that billions of dollars + top scientists and researchers in the world should have figured this out by now. It’s not like we’re curing cancer, or anything.

Oil spewed unabated into the Gulf of Mexico for a second day as BP prepared a new cap for its damaged well, but the company said work was progressing faster than expected. The oil flow increased Saturday after the older cap, which was installed June 4, was removed. That device allowed some crude to keep pouring into the Gulf. BP hopes the new, tighter cap will collect most if all of the oil. The switchover, made possible by robotic submarines, should now be completed in three to six days, BP said.
