Hulu Offering Credit to PSN Users
According to Kotaku, PlayStation 3 owners who have a Hulu subscription are begin offered one-week refunds from the service, due to the recent PSN outage.
Below is an example of the emails users have been getting over the past few days from Hulu:
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.

Please note: No personal Hulu Plus account information was compromised
as part of the Sony intrusion.
While this certainly doesn’t make up for users being unable to get on the PlayStation Network, it’s at least good to see that someone cares.
