Hulu stops working on the PS3

CrunchGear is reporting that Hulu no longer works with the Sony Playstation 3.  I have heard numerous accounts of this so far although there seems to be no definite answer as to what is going on just yet.  I have heard several reports speculating that this could have been broken in the latest firmware update (2.8).  I have also heard reports saying that they have dugg deaper and found that the PS3 is being specifically blocked by Hulu.  When you try to watch a video on Hulu, you get this message:  “Unfortunately, this video is not available on your platform.  We apologize for any inconveinence.”

Personally, I have only used Hulu on my PS3 a couple of times because it is not a very good experience on the PS3.  As fas as I am concerned, it isn’t a great loss but I am sure there are a few people out there that liked to use the PS3 to watch Hulu content.  I have not verified this myself but I will when I get home from work and then report back on tonight’s recording of the Global Geek News Podcast.

Of the stories I have read, nobody has been able to get a comment from either Sony or Hulu on this issue yet.
