Google, Microsoft And Yahoo Fight To Buy Hulu

Filed under: TV NewsDisneyTech TalkYouTubeBusiness Blitz


Google is just the latest company to throw their hat in the Hulu ring.

Along with Microsoft and Yahoo, Google has been added to the list of potential buyers interested in purchasing Hulu, which is currently co-owned by Disney, News Corp., NBC Universal and Providence Equity Partners.

If bidders go high enough, analysts say that Hulu could receive about $2 billion-$3 billion in the deal.

Whoa. That's some major dough. If Google takes over Hulu, we wonder how that will affect their deal with YouTube??

We knew the royal wedding was going to be huge, but this is incredible!!

Over 3 billion people watched William and Catherine, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, wed on Friday.

Viewers all over the world held parties and special events in honor of the festivities, with some fans staying up all night to celebrate in local bars.

In London, a million people lined the route of the royal procession. An additional 500,000 gathered in front of Buckingham Palace to watch the bride and groom kiss on the balcony.

Thankfully, Wills and Kate gave them quite a show with a double kiss!

Their big day became one of the most-watched TV broadcasts in the UK, with more than 24 million viewers tuning in.

As hoped, the royal wedding quite possibly brought in a "renewed era of optimism" for the country.

Spending the day celebrating, Natalie Hawkins of West Sussex remarked, "…Today has turned me into a total royalist."

That speaks for all of us!

With such an exciting and momentous occasion, it seems the world was absolutely smitten with the royal family on Friday.

TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners are the proud new owners of J. Crew!

Back in November the retailer announced the two private equity firms were set to acquire the company for $3 billion on the condition they didn't receive any better offers during the go-shop period.
