Also, access to Hulu on the iPad seems a bit less valuable given
that Disney’s ABC, one of Hulu’s owners, is already giving
away free access to its shows via a very popular app. Industry
sources says Hulu CEO Jason Kilar tried desperately to get ABC not
to introduce its free app for this very reason.
But while Disney is a minority owner in Hulu, Apple CEO Steve Jobs
is the largest individual shareholder in Disney. If you want to
connect the dots on that one, you’ll be doing the same thing
everyone else in TV Land is doing.
