News Corp Research Report

News Corp and Disney are rumored to be in talks that may lead to one of the
partners buying out the other's stake in Hulu.com, a video streaming website.
Disney and News Corp each own about one third stake in Hulu, and Comcast owns
a minority stake. According to the news, Disney is pushing that Hulu shifts to
an advertising-focused business model, while News Corp is intending to allow
Hulu to keep relying on subscriptions. Hulu reported that its revenue grew 65
percent to $695 million after its subscribers doubled to 3 million. This shows
how News Corp's subscription model is currently working for the online video
website. As online viewing continues to grow, both shareholders are expected
to increase their interest in buying each other out to resolve discussions
about Hulu's future. The Full Research Report on News Corp - including full
