Is Hulu Dead in the Water?

I was reading this article by Peter Kafka and the basic jist of the story is that the Owners of Hulu (News Corp, ABC and NBC) aren’t willing to give their own creation exclusive rights to programming because their is too much money to be made on the outside market by selling content to companies like Dish and Direct. While many people love Hulu, I’ve never been that big a fan of it, the commercials were always too long and the streaming was always too iffy for me to really see it as a viable option. However, with reports of $500m in revenue for Hulu there must be a lot of people who like the online service. Without the exclusive contracts for Hulu that it’s parents won’t give it I don’t see how it survives as viable competitor in the streaming world, why go to Hulu when you can stream all the same content you want via your dish? The parents of Hulu, obviously no longer want their child becuase they are trying to sell it and as for me I don’t see too many buyers for it, who would want a product that won’t have the ability to remain competitive?
