    Social TV Just Got Real With Hulu On Facebook

    Hulu does TV shows better than just about everyone. In fact, other than YouTube, Hulu attracts the highest level of engagement of any web video platform (with the average web viewer watching an average of 3.2 hours a month).

    Delay On Hulu Availability More Than Doubles Piracy Of Fox Shows

    A week ago, Fox changed its licensing rules so that non-paying users of Hulu would be unable to watch new episodes of their shows until eight days after their air date. Put on your analyst hat and think about what effect this might have on, say, piracy of those shows. Did you determine that it would increase piracy?

  • The Case for Yahoo to Buy Hulu

    The Case for Yahoo to Buy Hulu

    While Yahoo! remains the best positioned digital media company around, Wall Street remains unconvinced. Yahoo!’s revenues are not growing as fast as other online media companies (GOOG, AMZN, Facebook, etc).  Moreover, between Facebook’s grip on display ad inventory and DSPs changing the way advertisers buy inventory, Yahoo’s core business (display, reach) is under threat Read More

The two lines show more than a 30 percent divergence during primetime. So what changed? Read More

  • Source: This Hulu/Yahoo Story Is BS

    Interesting story breaking that Yahoo put an unsolicited bid in to acquire Hulu. For all I know it’s completely true. But I’ve just received an unsolicited message from a source close to Yahoo that says it’s completely untrue (probably because of all my digging the last week on this Yahoo story). Yahoo hasn’t had any meaningful conversations with Hulu about a buyout… Read More
