How to activate hulu plus on ps3

I’m really a big fan of Hulu right now and having a large family has made this service a life saver for me. Two to three months ago I decided to sign up and save myself some money. Since then I have learned how to use many of their settings and features and I have been quite pleased with Hulu. I’m sure you know I like sharing my knowledge, so before we continue with this article, here are some other articles I have written about Hulu and various customizations which are available:

Now we can continue. This week’s piece of knowledge I want to share is how to add a new device. I feel that it is important to know how to add new devices to your Hulu account. Now, grab that laptop and get ready to learn how to add your favorite device.

How To Add A Device To Hulu

Step 1: Load the App on your device (I’m using PS4 for this article). Once you’re finished loading the App, open it.

Step 2: Once you open the App, you will see this screen. Here, it will offer two login options. We are going to choose Activate on a computer for this article in the bottom-left. Select it.

Step 3: The next screen will give you two steps: one is the web address you need to go to, and the other is the activation code you need to enter. Head over to your computer and type in that address.

Step 4: If you are not already logged in to your Hulu account, you will run into this screen. Pick which way you wish to log in.

Step 5: Now that you have logged in, you will see a box to enter the activation code. Enter the code and click the green Activate button. (Wonder twin powers activate!! Who remembers that cartoon? 🙂 ). After that, you will see another screen with the magic word, “Success”.

Step 6: We do have one more step and that is to make sure our device is activated. Head back to the device and see if the screen refreshed to the one you see below. If you do, you are all good to go. DONE!

The Hulu Plus application for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) enables you to use your Hulu Plus subscription directly from your PS3, ensuring that you never miss an episode of your favorite television show. Setting up and using the service can prove difficult for new users, as it requires additional steps compared to the PC browser-based version and a different control scheme.

Downloading and Installing Hulu Plus

Before you can begin watching Hulu on the PS3, you’ll need to download and install the Hulu Plus application; while the app is a free download, you will need a Hulu Plus subscription to use it. After booting the PS3, log into your PlayStation Network (PSN) account, navigate to the Games tab on the PS3 main menu and select PlayStation Store. To quickly find the application, use the Search feature: Select “Search” from the store’s main menu, enter “Hulu Plus” and then select the app from the list of search results. After loading the Hulu Plus app page, select “Download” and follow the on-screen prompts to download and install the Hulu Plus app. Depending on your Internet connection, the time to download can vary; however, the app is a small size and shouldn’t take long to download regardless of your connection speed.

Activating and Launching Hulu Plus

After the download is complete, the Hulu Plus app is found under the TV/Video Services heading on the PS3’s main menu. Launch the Hulu Plus application, select “Log In” and use the on-screen keyboard to enter the email address and password you used to sign up with Hulu Plus. If this is your first time using Hulu Plus on the PS3, you will need to enter the displayed device activation code shown on your television at the following Hulu website on your PC:

Enter the code into your PC into click “Activate.” Within about 30 seconds, your account will be active on the PS3. Activation is a one-time process; in the future, launching the Hulu Plus application on the PS3 will take you directly to the service.

Using Hulu Plus

Controls for Hulu Plus vary depending on whether you’re browsing for a title or watching a video. During browsing, Up, Down, Left and Right move the cursor in the corresponding directions. The X button selects the currently highlighted option and the Circle button returns to a previous screen. During playback, Up and Down show and hide the player options, as does the Square button. Left and Right rewind or fast-forward through the video respectively, while the X buton toggles Play and Pause and the Circle buton closes the video, returning you to the application.

Troubleshooting Streaming Issues

When video playback is choppy or unresponsive, there are a few methods you can use to fix the problem. Start by running an Internet connection test on your PlayStation 3 by selecting “Settings,” then “Network Settings” and “Internet Connection Test.” The results should indicate whether your connection can handle the stream: Hulu suggests a 1.5 Mbps connection for standard definition and a 3 Mbps connection for high-definition videos. If your PlayStation 3 meets these requirements but Hulu Plus playback is still choppy, shut down your PS3 and disconnect your modem and router’s power for about 60 seconds. After plugging everything back in, retry Hulu Plus to see if the playback improves. If choppy playback continues, disconnect any other devices connected to the Internet and verify that bandwidth intensive processes, such as downloading files on your PS3 or PC, are not occurring. As a last ditch effort, deleting and re-installing the Hulu Plus app may solve your issues. If you are still experiencing problems, contact Sony technical support, as there may be some other issue with your PS3, or your Internet Service Provider.

Hulu Plus is an online streaming service provided by It provides thousands of TV episodes including the entire season of popular and classic shows such as The Biggest Loser, Dancing with the Stars, Modern Family, Glee, House and Lost. With Hulu Plus, you can directly watch these TV shows on your HDTV, Xbox, iPhone, iPad, Wii, PS3, Nintendo 3dS, Roku and more. To start enjoying the great services, you need to activate Hulu Plus on your devices first.

If you would like to activate Hulu Plus on your digital device, such as Roku, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, Panasonic TV, LG TV, Sony Blu-ray, PS 3, Vizio, or Tivo box, just follow these simple steps to activate it online at to start enjoying the great benefits of Hulu Plus.

How to activate:

First, download the Hulu Plus app on your device and follow the instructions to install it. For example, if you have a Roku you need to add Hulu plus from Roku Channel Store, and if you have a PS3 you need to download it from the PlayStation Store.

Second, launch the Hulu Plus app and click on the login button. Then it will show you an exclusive Activation Code.

Third, open the website in a standard web browser from your computer or mobile device and sign in with your account. If you don’t have one, click on the “Sign up here” button to create a new account. Once logged, enter the Activation Code you got and click “Activate”.

Finally, your device will be automatically logged in to your Hulu Plus account and you can start to enjoy one month free trial of Hulu Plus service.

Please note: Different devices may have some difference. If you need more help, call Hulu Plus customer service 1-877-719-2773.

Please note: Your Hulu Plus membership is only $7.99 a month after your trial. If you don’t want to continue the service, remember to cancel it.

Sony’s just full of surprises, announcing immediate access to Hulu Plus courtesy the PS3 far in advance of the service’s anticipated late 2010 or early 2011 launch timeframe. The only catch? You have to be a subscriber, both to Hulu Plus, which costs $9.99 a month, as well as Sony’s premium content PlayStation Plus service, which costs $49.99 a year.

Plugging In

To get started, sign into PlayStation Plus via the PlayStation Store, and there it is, a little green square teasing early access to Hulu’s streaming multichannel banquet, overlaid with the signature golden d-pad icon indicating that it’s for PlayStation Plus members only.

About 300 people had rated the preview when I tapped on it, giving it a few ticks of yellow past 4 stars of 5. (I’m guessing the ones holding back a full five are those waiting for an invite to actually use it.)

The “exclusive PlayStation Plus offer” identifies it as a “limited preview,” meaning, presumably, that the plug could go anytime. But while it’s live, you’ll be able to “watch…every episode of the current season for top titles from ABC, Fox, and NBC,” view “full series of shows” and “back seasons of classics,” and pore over “hundreds of titles and tens of thousands of videos.” (That thumping sound you’re hearing is Netflix’s heart beating a little faster.)

All That Potential

Once you download the application–it’s all of 28 MB–you’re only a potential user. You still have to request an invitation using your PSN sign-in ID, after which you might (and I repeat might) receive an official invite to participate in the preview.

As for how you make that request, once the app’s pulled down and installed, you’ll want to exit the PlayStation Store and tap over to the Video column, where the Hulu Plus Preview icon sits between Video Editor & Uploader and the subsection’s PlayStation Store entry point.

Once loaded, you can either request an invite, view sample videos, or click an “Already A Subscriber” button. The latter’s for those who already have invites, and generates a random code you’ll have to type into your Hulu Plus account (at to get your device past the gate guards, after which you can log in (name and password) and start viewing stuff.

Sample While You Wait

If you’re stuck outside the gate, waiting, you can still fiddle with a dozen or so sample videos. For instance, I pulled up a Family Guy clip of Peter fighting with a chicken to check out the video quality and playback options. Once the clip loaded, I had the option to pause it and tinker with the video quality, tapping L1 to modulate the standard definition feed between either 1.0 Mb/s or 650 kb/s. There was no high-def option for this one, and the video quality looked about the same at either speed.

Bringing up a high-def clip from Grey’s Anatomy, on the other hand, provided the option to switch between HD at either 3.2 MB/s or 2.5 Mb/s in addition to the slower SD options. The quality difference between 650 kb/s and 3.2 MB/s was pretty dramatic, as expected.

According to Sony, the PS3 will be the only console to offer Hulu Plus access in 2010. If true, that’s a pretty major coup for Sony, and assuming Sony isn’t stingy on the preview invites, could actually drive PS3 sales.

Then again, it does cost an additional $9.99 a month (around $120 a year). And there’s no guarantee Sony won’t pull the rug out from under us at any point in the interim between now and the service’s official launch.

Hit the Hulu Plus on my blu-ray out of curiosity, and lo and behold, it worked.

Bit of a buffering issue, but roommate is watching Netflix on the Roku downstairs, so don’t know if this would be normal. I rather expect we’ll not be able to watch Hulu Plus at same time on two devices (bandwidth), but that’s not a worry since we have so many other options.

Watching the Glee Rocky Horror Picture Show episode — excellent quality. Seriously.

I love new toys.

Anyway, reason I am writing this is I know there’s at least one other person in this forum who has a Sony blu-ray and wanted Hulu Plus. And I’m thinking that the roll out for Roku should be relatively soon.

The videos are HD.

And there are definitely commercials. They’re short commercials, but distracting after the commercial-free nature of Watch Now. The problem, too, is that they’re aired during set times, rather than at the commercial breaks built naturally into the TV shows.

Rumor has it the commercial Hulu Plus will get dropped to half cost, and a new version without commercials (at 12.95) made available. I hope so.

Hopefully it’ll hit the PS3 soon. I think system update happen on Mondays typically for it. If I recall that’s when the last few biggies rolled out anyway (including Netflix).

Roku can’t be too far behind either. At this point I imagine it’s just one day at a time to keep from overloading the system with all the new users at once. If so within a week we should all have access.

Someone reported getting an invite with a free trial by waiting for their Bravia TV to come online (TV’s were first oddly enough). Can anyone confirm that? I’m waiting to subscribe until I have a device to watch it on. Maybe I’ll get lucky.

Nun sacciu, nun vidi, nun ceru e si ceru durmiv.
I know nothing, I see nothing, I wasn’t there,
and if I was there, I was asleep.

    I tried to activate Hulu through my bundle online. I was getting a blank screen for a couple of months, now it says to come back later. Tried on several different browsers as well and nothing is getting through.

    Hulu may be down

    How to activate hulu plus on

    It’s not unusual for the whole Hulu service to go down or for it to go down just for specific users. Before you try some at-home streaming fixes, make sure the problem isn’t out of your hands and in the hands of Hulu technicians. An excellent site to check in your browser for outages is While there, you can check out a live outage map and read complaints from other viewers. A quick search for #huludown or #hulu on Twitter often will let you know if there are problems in a pinch, too.

    Quick fixes for Hulu problems

    How to activate hulu plus on ps3

    If you’re now sure that you don’t have a problem caused by Hulu, you can try some at-home remedies. Here are some steps that have worked for us before, and if one doesn’t work for you, keep going down the list to see if the next tip will help.

    Step 1: Completely close the Hulu app on your streaming device and reopen it.

    Step 2: Restart your device.

    Step 3: Try resetting your router. If you don’t know how, here’s our simple guide to resetting a router.

    Step 4: Make sure you have the latest version of the Hulu app. Go to the app store and see if there’s an update or newer version available for download.

    Step 5: Uninstall the app and reinstall it.

    Step 6: Remove your device or console from your account and re-add it.

    Step 7: Check that VPN or Proxy services are switched off (for U.S. customers).

    A more advanced fix

    If Hulu still isn’t working, your internet might be too slow to stream the shows. Run a speed test on your internet connection to check if your service is moving data quickly enough for Hulu. Hulu recommends 3.0Mbps for watching the Hulu streaming library, 8.0Mbps for watching live streams, and 16Mbps for watching 4K content. If you don’t know how to check, Hulu has a guide on doing a speed test for multiple devices, such as computers, various smart TV models, iPad streaming, mobile device streaming, and game systems.

    If you have other devices using your Wi-Fi, then they might be lowering the internet speeds you need to stream Hulu. If you’re using Wi-Fi, you may try connecting your device directly to the router using an Ethernet or HDMI cable or adding a Wi-Fi repeater to your network to get rid of signal dead zones.

    If nothing seems to be working, you can also Google the specific Hulu error code you’re receiving or go to the Hulu Community to see if others have found solutions to similar problems.
