Ive tried Hulu and I honestly don't see whats the big deal about it. Was such a pain to find anything I wanted, and they milk you for money anyway they can.

However out of the companies the only one I don't want to see buying it would be Direct TV. Id like to see what Amazon does with it, since their current streaming service for Prime sucks....I love Amazon and hate to be harsh, but it does.

I've never tried Hulu. But one thing I do like, over Netflix, is how soon they get TV shows after they air.

I wouldn't want Microsoft to get this either. I don't care for their business tactics at all.

I'd rather see Yahoo or Google pick it up. Not really sure why Amazon would due to them wanting to get their own streaming service off the ground.

For that same reason, not even sure why Netflix would be interested either since they offer the same service.

IF MS can get it, I guarantee that would be making its way to Xbox and I love my Xbox so I'm all over this if they snag it.
