Hulu Close To Extending Content Deal

Posted May 13, 2011

Hulu is currently in negotiations to extend the right to stream TV programs on their website provided by NBC, Fox, and ABC. This would be an extension to a deal that News Corp., Disney, and NBCUniversal signed two years ago.

The deal is being negotiated with Hulu CEO Jason Kilar and executives from News Corp. and Disney. NBCUniversal gave up their Hulu board seats as part of the Comcast merger agreements. Providence Equity Partners also has a vote in the discussions.
