Actually, Hulu Plus has been available without a Playstation Plus account for a few weeks now.
We've dumped satellite in favor of streaming Netflix and Hulu Plus -- to the PS3 for our main display, a Roku for our smaller TV, and to the widescreen monitor on our computer for web-only content on Hulu (e.g. The Walking Dead
). The one downside is no NFL -- but I live out-of-market for my team anyway and already refused to pay the exorbitant price DirecTV charges for their NFL package. If I didn't live out-of-market, it'd cost very little to buy an antenna and pull HD games directly from the ether for free. In time, the NFL will come around to streaming. I'll be more than happy to pay the league to stream games, provided they offer a package that doesn't cost more than an entire year of cable/satellite (hey, how 'bout letting me buy all of the games for my team, and then anything else a la carte instead of charging me for access to every single game played? No, that probably makes too much sense).

Both the PS3 and Roku have MLB.TV and NHL.
