Report: Hulu Near Network Deal

A report today says that Los Angeles-based Hulu is close to inking a new deal with its network owners. According to AllThingsD, the deal will keep programs from NBC, Fox and ABC on the video site. There had been some rumors that the networks were pondering pulling their support from the site, as some of the original network executives backing Hulu had departed their jobs, and Hulu CEO Jason Kilar himself challenged the industry's business model earlier this year.
