News Corp deputy chairman Chase Carey has added his voice to that of his boss Rupert Murdoch in calling for a move to charges being levied for internet services in this case for the Hulu online video-on-demand joint venture between NBC, News Corp and Disney.
Carey told the Broadcasting & Cable OnScreen conference in New York last week that the advertising-supported model for Hulu was not sustainable in the long term. He said that the service would require a subscription model as part of its business.
A subscription service could be launched as early next year, although Carey said that no fixed date had been set.
