“It is a bad sign when the Chief Digital Officer of News Corp, co-owner of Hulu, says he sees a future where people are paying for Hulu.
Jonathan Miller, News Corp.’s newly-installed chief digital officer, said he envisions a future where at least some of the TV shows and movies on Hulu, the premium video site co-owned by News Corp. (NWS), NBC Universal and Disney (DIS), are available only to subscribers. “

Somebody is going to be awfully upset
Back in March, former AOL head Jon Miller was appointed Chief Digital Officer of Hulu and has he got an announcement for you! He “envisions a future where at least some of the TV shows and movies on Hulu … are available only to subscribers.”. To put it another way, fork over some money or we’re taking at least some, if not all, of your movies and shows away. He seems to talk about bundles (aka tiered access) being the selling model, but that is not necessarily all bad news. He mentions iPhones and Kindles as possible clients for streaming, though there was no mention of future Tegra powered devices. Follow the link from [H]ard|OCP to read up on Mr. Miller.
