Hulu looks to international
November 18, 2008
Hulu, the video website owned by News Corp and NBC Universal, hopes to expand internationally and is interested in Britain, France, Germany and Japan. Peter Smith, President of NBC Universal International, told reporters that his firm would love to roll out the online video joint venture further but that there were no concrete plans to announce yet.
He said they were interested in Britain, France, Germany and Japan because online video was already popular and growing strongly in those countries. “Hulu is on this tremendous growth curve and it’s very compelling to advertisers."
