Hulu Up for Grabs; Company Expects $1.5 Billion

Peter Kafka at AllThingsD prepares us for the sale of Hulu, with bids expected in the neighborhood of $1.5 billion. Mr. Kafka speculates that the most likely buyer may be Yahoo, a company (like other prospective bidders) with none of the blossoming ambivalence and complications that bedevil current co-owners Disney, News Corp, and Comcast, who produce and distribute the television shows that make up Hulu’s “jukebox,” which a Modern Family producer speculated would be “empty” should shows and their producers cease to cooperate with Hulu’s terms.
