Google May Be Going All Out in Hulu Bid

Right now, Amazon, Yahoo, Dish Network and Google are all in talks with Hulu about buying the streaming video service.

But while the first three potential suitors are all talking about relatively similar deals that would get them the site and two years worth of content, Google may be eyeing something bigger.

Apparently, Google is open to spending much more than the $1.5-2 billon the other companies are looking at. And for that money? Well, that part isn't entirely clear. But presumably, Google would want a few more years of content out of the deal. After all, without content Hulu isn't worth all that much.

Of course, the networks would have to be OK with the owner of YouTube suddenly owning Hulu, so we'll see. We should have more info on the potential sale soon enough.
