The bidding is going to MUCH higher than that. Though, Google actually is the one that least needs it cos they have Youtube.

I think Yahoo would probably benefit the most, they need a good video player.

I really wish companies could just stand on their own these days without being gobbled up and folded into monsters.

If amazon would pick this up and bundle it with the Amazon prime for 80 bucks a year, I would definitely buy into it. Hulu is not bad, the extra stuff that could be threw into it with amazon primes selection plus the fast shipping would be great for us.

Now if only hulu would lift the damn computer use restrictions in place on the iphone/ps3 apps to allow us to watch everything hulu offers and I would get rid of dish network. I would be willing to pay more for hulu+ if they opened up all their titles to the streaming devices.

The fact that none of these services are worldwide is just stupid though, I know there are licensing issues, but there is NO decent TV show provider like Hulu in the UK. If they expanded here, they would make so much money.
