Initial bids for US online TV site Hulu are due tomorrow, with Amazon, DirecTV, Google and Yahoo! widely believed to in the running.
Yahoo! has been tipped as a possible front runner by US-based Business Insider. However, estimates of the size of bids varies widely from US$500 million (€350 million) up to US$2 billion, depending on the range of TV shows that Hulu’s content suppliers – Disney, News Corp and Comcast – would be willing to license, the length of time they would be available and the possible length of the licensing agreement.
