Dish pays $1.9 billion for Hulu
Remember how a group of bidders was circling around Hulu a couple weeks ago? Whatever happened with that?
Google bid much more — something in the range of $4 billion. But that bid came with special conditions, as has been previously reported — Google wanted more content for a longer period of time, and perhaps other concessions as well.
Rumor has it that Larry Page personally flew down to Los Angeles to make Google’s case.
