Apple Rumored to Buy Hulu

Hulu, the online video service, is in the market for a buyer.  Over the last few months, Hulu has been shopping around for the most lucrative offer.  While Microsoft stepped down from the bidding war, it now appears that Apple is interested.  According to a Mashable related article, two people who weren’t authorized to speak publicly, let it leak that Apple has stepped into the bidding negotiations.

With Hulu, people can enjoy directly from their TV lift cabinets, hundreds of television shows and movies for free.  To make this happen, Hulu is partnered with NBCUniversal, News Corporation, The Walt Disney Company, and Providence Equity Partners.  While people can watch free programs and movies, they do have to endure through lengthy advertisements as this is how Hulu makes money.

The bidding war may go as high as $2 billion, according to The Business Insider.  If rumor is true, Apple will be bidding against Yahoo.  The deal includes five years of programming including two years of exclusivity.

Changes Happening at Amazon and Hulu

With all the outrage over Netflix’s price hikes, many former Netflix customers have been defecting to alternate streaming services. Two services that seem to be high on consumer lists of alternatives are Amazon and Hulu.

In the wake of the Netflix uproar, new developments have emerged regarding Amazon and Hulu. Amazon’s Prime streaming video service recently struck a deal with CBS to begin streaming 2,000 TV show episodes. This means Amazon will now offer full seasons of 18 TV series.  The agreement includes episodes of “The Tudors,” “Numb3rs,” and “Cheers”. All content can be streamed to a computer or directly to your TV lift cabinet.

Hulu is another heavy hitter in the world of streaming TV shows and movies. The company has hired investment bankers to oversee a potential sale of their service. Yahoo has come forward as a would-be buyer, if Hulu can agree to their terms. The terms are 5 years of exclusive access to Hulu’s content. If Hulu were to agree to the offer, the service would be sold for a reported $2 billion. Hulu sources have a different take and have offered 5 years of access with much less exclusivity. Meaning other sites, such as the network website for the individual TV shows, could stream the same content.

Time will tell what happens with both services as the Netflix price increases do not go into effect until September. However, with the amount of angry consumers promising to jump ship, both Amazon and Hulu have the potential to reap the benefits.
