    Why? Youtube isn't into full shows and movies yet, and even when they do, they still have their core video service which hulu isn't touching.

    Disney is quite significant because of Steve Job's presence on their board. I wonder if we will see some Hulu - Mac/iPod integration soon. Perhaps add Hulu to Apple TV and front row.

    At least they now have somebody who understands technology and how to not dilute your brand. Disney's brand has been suffering, partly due to their technology incompetence.

    YouTube's core video service loses fantastic amounts of money and their only hope of ever turning that around is full shows that they can sell proper advertising around, so it's a very big issue for them.

    In the mid-April, Google announced that their video-sharing site YouTube would begin offering thousands of TV episodes and hundreds of movies...

    Why? I think Hulu will die out within a year.
