Update: Hulu Will Not Charge for All of Its Content (But Probably For Some)

huluA few days ago I wrote an article about how News Corp. Deputy Chairman Chase Carey made a statement that Hulu would start charging for content. Naturally, people were not pleaseed, although some admitted that they would be willing to pay for certain types of content.

EW now has some follow-up information. First, Hulu will continue to be FREE, but it will also include paid components.

Contrary to widespread web reports, the wildly popular TV and movies streaming website Hulu is not planning to start charging for all its content although you would certainly be forgiven for thinking so.

A source close to Hulu, however, tells EW that the site remains steadfastly committed to free content, explaining that any possible subscription or pay-per-view service has no set timeline and would only build upon what Hulu offers, not replace it.

So there you have it. No real details yet on what kind of content Hulu will be charging for or what type of subscription service it might implement, but at least Americans can now rest easy that their free Hulu will continue in some form. As for the rest of the world – we’re still S.O.L.
