Report: Google in talks to buy Hulu
Both Google and Hulu are staying mum concerning reports that the companies are in preliminary talks for Google to buy the online video site.
Following a Los Angeles Times report that Google is among the potential buyers currently meeting with Hulu, a Google spokesperson told EW today, “We don’t comment on rumor or speculation.” A Hulu spokeswoman declined to comment as well. The paper’s unnamed sources also claimed Microsoft Corp. and Yahoo were also among those interested.
The article makes clear that all these sites are looking for a piece of the ever-growing tech pie because of the big-name advertisers attached to the TV shows featured on Hulu and, of course, its millions of users.
