Default Hulu Plus Members Credited for Lost PS3 Access

One of the effects of the PlayStation Network downtime that began a week ago is Hulu Plus being inaccessible on PlayStation 3. As a premium service that users have to pay for, it's perhaps a bigger loss than being unable to play games online. To make up for the lost time, Hulu is offering a $2.00 credit to Plus users on their next month's bill.
Given that Hulu Plus can still be accessed on other devices, it's rather generous of the company to offer anything at all, even if $2 isn't an enormous deal. (It works out to being about one quarter of the monthly fee, which is $7.99.) An email has been dispatched to affected members with a link that needs to be visited in order to obtain the free credit. Hulu also notes that no account information related to its service was leaked as a part of the "external intrusion" on the PlayStation Network.

Sony meanwhile has yet to reveal what -- if anything -- it will do for affected customers. Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal wants Sony to offer two years of credit reporting services for free along with "sufficient insurance to protect them from the possible financial consequences of identity theft." It seems like a given that PlayStation Plus members will have their memberships extended for free, but beyond that it's anyone's guess what the average user will get. As noted yesterday, an FAQ posted about the breach said the "correct course of action" will be decided upon once PSN is back up and running. "Some services" are expected to be online "within a week."
