PS Vita getting Hulu Plus, Redbox Instant and more video apps

The PlayStation Vita is getting six new video apps, three of which are available today on the handheld device, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog.

Starting today, PS Vita owners can download the Crunchyroll app to stream anime; NHL GameCenter Live to stream out-of-market hockey games with a subscription; and Quello, a service that streams concerts and music documentaries.

In the spring, the PS Vita will get apps for Gaiam TV, which includes fitness and yoga classes; Hulu Plus, which will offer streaming network television with a subscription next week; and Redbox Instant by Verizon, which will ship with a free month of movies for new subscribers.

The new video apps join a host of existing PS Vita apps that include Crackle, NBA Game Time, Netflix, Skype and YouTube. Sony's PlayStation 4 launched with 11 entertainments apps, including several that are headed to PS Vita. The HBO Go app arrived on PlayStation 3 earlier this month. A PS4 version will follow.
