It’s interesting how Apple just keeps going and going… in this case, they’re going after Hulu. I just read news that it’s their latest prospective acquisition and should this go through, Apple users can definitely enjoy more online TV streaming from their favorite gadgets.
Hulu is jointly owned by NBC Universal, FOX Entertainment Group and Disney-ABC Television Group (The Walt Disney Company). Reuters reported last July 7 that the owners, specifically Disney’s Iger, are committed to the sale of Hulu and that they are after the highest possible value the sale could amount to rather than who the next owner will be.
But what’s interesting about all this is that reports also say that Steve Jobs, who is also called the “brain” behind Apple’s comeback, is also Disney’s largest shareholder. Gizmodo.com reported earlier that other parties interested in bidding for Hulu are CBS, Microsoft (who seems to have lost interest according to Bloomberg) and Google. I guess we’ll see how this all pans out and which giant wins.
