…Time Warner or DirecTV buys Hulu to convert into a platform solely for them? Where will TAN online programming then end up, or will it be gone?
[quote]DirecTV, which reportedly wants to convert Hulu into an online companion to its satellite dish service for the benefit of its satellite subscribers
Hulu’s new owners could continue to offer the service much the same way it is provided today, with a free and pay version. But most expect the new owners will throw up a programming “pay wall,” requiring users to authenticate themselves as a pay television customer before they can watch Hulu programming.[/quote]
