Bob Iger’s Gunning for a Hulu Buyer
11:51 am, July 6th | by Amy Tennery
In what’s sure to become one of a bajillion noteworthy soundbites from the Sun Valley, Idaho Allen & Co. conference this week, Iger said that that the owners (which include Disney, News Corp and Comcast) are “committed to selling,” according to Bloomberg.
Also, there’s “a lot of interest” in a deal, Iger noted, which hardly seems surprising.
Among the candidates to buy? Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and AT&T are all names that have been tossed around recently. And while it’s (clearly) still in the rumor stage of things, Bloomberg estimates that the content provider could net around $2 billion.
So yea, for $2 billion I’d guess anyone would be “committed to selling.”
