Of course. Fox and Disney are two of Hulu’s owners, so their presence was totally expected. Time Warner’s Turner Broadcasting channels will also being baked in for the same reason: Time Warner also owns 10% share of Hulu.
Comcast, the third owner, is said to be negotiating. CBS, with itself owns the CBS All Access pay service, is not on the Hulu system. But it wouldn’t be surprising if CBS gets into the action, if everybody else.
The Turner channels covers Turner networks, including TBS, TNS, CNN, Turner Classic Movies.
DirecTV’s link up with AT&T will also lead to its own skinny bundle, though not as skinny as the Hulu configurat. DirecTV expects 100 channels. And Website Fierce Cable says AT&T is ready go into business without CBS and Fox participation.
There are other skinny bundles, so many that cable’s bundle and triple play “deals” will almost certainly take a hit.
