“Yes, we’re constantly talking to [Hulu]. We’d love the opportunity to do it, assuming that the deals make sense. I don’t know Jason [Kilar, Hulu’s chief executive], the guy they got from Amazon, though I certainly know a lot of people who know him and respect the heck out of him. If anyone could try and build a next-generation destination, it’s probably him, based on his background.
I love everything about the joint venture and the notion of syndicating content with distribution partners that are already proven in the business, both in the video-destination and the widget business. But why–why still hold on to a destination [Web site]? That’s a huge amount of infrastructure, that’s a huge part of investment and frankly, a huge distraction.”
