  1. Hulu seems to be drawing the attention of quite a few potential buyers after it was suggested that the company was considering the sale of its video streaming business.

    Well, maybe now Hulu services would be accesible worldwide - that is, if Google bought it.

    I would rather see it not go to Google, it is already a huge 'monopoly' in many ways so strengthening it further doesn't bode will for the consumers. I hope Yahoo (preferably) or MS will buy it, provided it made business sense.

    I guess if Google ended up buying Hulu, they would drop their video and tv rental section of YouTube? Or perhaps integrate it in some way? Either way, I view it as Google trying to take the easy way out. Instead of them working on and improving their own movie and tv streaming service, why not just buy out someone who already has what you're trying to work on?
