Yet Another Hulu Bidder! Yahoo Is In Too

If you want to talk about the Belle of the Ball, Hulu has to be at the top of the list as far as suitors go. The latest to add their name to the list is Yahoo, the company that has specialized in buying up companies for fun in the past few months. Yahoo joins six other large concerns in what is sure to be a very spirited bidding war.

Hulu hasn’t had a formal M&A process, but had asked prospective bidders to make an offer by Wednesday. That deadline apparently isn’t a firm one, so it’s worth wondering if the field will grow more crowded before this over.
