Hulu Could Still Be Sold to Time Warner Cable
Despite the Cancellation of Bidding This Week
by Karl Bode 07:56AM Tuesday Jul 16 2013
Hulu owners Disney, NBC Universal and 21st Century Fox this week cancelled bidding on the Internet video portal for the second time because they weren't seeing the kind of bids they were looking for. However, Bloomberg reports that Time Warner Cable may not be out of the running as a possible buyer, and that the two sides continue to work out the details of a new arrangement. The deal could be completed sometime in the next two weeks, according to the source.

It doesn't say...

sold in it entirety to TWC, it says TWC want to buy a stake, likely the same 25% they were interested in before.
Spreading out the ownership, particularly to another CATV provider with content distribution rights and it's own video production expertice would be a very good thing for HULU.
And NO it still won't be "truly disruptive", but it will be an IPTV success story.
