Blocking the PS3 will improve the product?!?!?!? Say what?Hulu Tries To Explain Why It's Blocking The PS3, Fails
Last month, streaming video service Hulu began blocking the PlayStation 3's web browser from accessing its content, a practice that continues to this day without official explanation. But customer service has attempted to explain the decision, somewhat cryptically.G4 received a response from Hulu that might leave one more bewildered about the change than not having read it. Hulu calls the change a "tough decision," a move the company makes "when we believe it improves our long-term prospects to build a more enduring, legal solution to that same problem."Hulu is a joint venture between NBC Universal and Fox Entertainment, offering television shows and movies to North America.

That's the only time I went there too. I haven't used Hulu since either.

So North America only comprises of the US now?
