Disruption

I don't see where Hulu ever said that they wanted to shift viewers away from Cable.

Agree. Other misquotes in the article that are 100% false, inaccurate, and should be fixed by Karl Bode See Profile:

And this is before Hulu is acquired by Comcast
Hulu can not be "acquired by Comcast", NBCU and Newscorp hold equal share (32%), Disney holds 28%, and some money tank "Providence Equity Partners" holds 8%. This is just false, incorrect, and should be corrected information in the article. Hulu ownership numbers released on Comcast filing to acquire NBCU

The cable and broadcast industry is absolutely begging for disruption by broadband video
What?! Who, which cable/sat/telco company is begging for disruption??? Which broadcaster or affiliate is begging for disruption??? No Karl, we are begging for disruption, not them...

Well, if you take the meaning of 'industry' which is synonymous with 'market' it's an accurate assessment.

Industry and market are not synonyms....

Industry: the organized action of making of goods and services for sale;

Which organization making goods/services for sale in regards to broadcast and cable is looking for a disruption in current distro?

Market: the customers for a particular product or service

This definition of market is looking for a disruption

Marketplace and the Securities Industry are synonymous, so are we talking about cable delivery disruption or their stock? It doesn't flow with the rest of the story if we're talking about stock prices.

Hulu (well the networks behind it) want to double dip.
They want to get paid by the comcasts, dish networks, etc. AND they want people to buy the subscription. This is the exact reason they don't want it on google tv, or any other device that is ON YOUR TV. They don't care if you give them ad dollars to watch it on your computer, or more ad dollars AND subscription dollars to watch it on your COMPUTER - they just wan't you to keep your cable/satellite feed TOO, and by restricting this way they think they can force us to do so. Which of course, will push people away more so than pull them in - to downloading, netflix, etc.
