Hulu Inches Nearer to UK Launch; German Version Apparently Under Negotiation

By Gary Cutlack on at

Popular US video streaming site Hulu might be about to move into Europe according to reports coming out of Germany, with TV executives said to be discussing options for its first official EU appearance.

German media news site Horizont is the source of the latest Hulu rumour, claiming its execs are currently trying to batter our some sort of deal for licensing TV content from the main German broadcasters, which it would presumably then combine with the enormous amount of US shows and Hollywood movies it's been streaming to America for several years.

But as much as we'd like to see Hulu arrive in the UK, surely it's pretty much doomed to failure, what with iPlayer, 4OD and the rest already so firmly established? [Gigaom]
