Yahoo now looking at Hulu as talks with Dailymotion is dead

Yahoo was until recently in talks with Dailymotion for a possible acquisition deal. Those talks have reportedly ended.

Latest industry rumors is that the company is now in early talks with Hulu for a possible deal. Hulu is a much lucrative acquisition target considering the quality of content available through this service.

However, for a deal to happen, Yahoo would need long term commitment from content providers, some of which are investors in this project.

Remains to be seen if Marissa Mayer’s plans to bring a solid video platform to Yahoo would materialize in the near future. The company already owns Flickr which is one of the most popular photo sharing service on the web today.
