Web users around the globe heaved a collective groan today, after Daily Finance published an interview with Jonathan Miller, the new chief digital officer at News Corporation. Asked if he could envision a future where popular video site Hulu would become a paid subscription service, Miller didn't demur.
"In my opinion," he said, "the answer could be yes. I don't see why over time that shouldn't happen. I don't think it's on the agenda for [the next company meeting, but] it seems to me that over time that could be a logical thing." Hulu is co-owned by News Corp., NBC Universal, and Disney. According to ComScore, the site's traffic has soared in recent months.
