DirecTV considering bid for Hulu streaming service DirecTV, the U.S.' second largest pay-TV provider, may be considering a bid for Hulu, say sources.
There has been plenty of interest for the streaming company, which offers current and past libraries of TV shows from ABC, NBC, the CW and Fox.

Among the would-be buyers are the Chernin Group, Time Warner Cable and Yahoo.

DirecTV would use the company to expand its "TV Everywhere" service, which makes TV available online to DTV subscribers.

My apologies, that was indeed Dish. DTV made a large bid for a TV provider in Latin America. The post has been updated.

Hmm, I wonder does this mean that Hulu won't have ads anymore for their service that we pay for that Neflix does have? Seeing ads is a pain in the ass even for 30 seconds. Takes away the suspense of too many shows dammit!

It should be an ad-blocker like Firefox have right?!
something like pop-up blockers:
AdAware (lavasoft.com), AdBlock Plus (adblockplus.org), and AdBlock Pro (adblockpro.com)
