Please do not let a cable or satellite company buy Hulu... it is already bad enough as far as ads and universal use per cost(doesn't work on a huge number of mobile devices where Netflix works on pretty much everything with 0 ads). I'm pulling for Yahoo big time on this one.

Im hoping for Yahoo or Microsoft buying it and turning it into a partially free video competitor to youtube. Would gladly pay to avoid youtube since its owned by google.
