Hulu Pulls Its Content From CBS-Owned TV.com

This story was written by Rafat Ali.
So TV.com's relaunch as a possible competitor to Hulu may not be sitting right with the News Corp-NBCU joint venture after all. The CBS-owned online video site which was relaunched last month, has pulled down Hulu content from its site, according to reports and confirmed by CBS-owned News.com. TV.com had signed on early as a Hulu distribution partner (along with AOL (NYSE: TWX) and others), even before Hulu has an official name. There has been talks of renewing of some contracts this year of different deal terms, after a year's exclusivity period with the distribution sites (Hulu officially launched in March last year), and now the contract may not have renewed in time for the deal to continue, from the looks of it. More when we hear back from CBS (NYSE: CBS) or Hulu PR.
