I hear in the news that Hulu is coming to Australia (http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/hulu-to-shake-up-aussie-tv-market-20110421-1dpq3.html).

Seems that the service may finally get out of the US. I know that the UK launch failed (http://www.worldtvpc.com/blog/adios-hulu-uk-launch-abandoned/) due to the local broadcasters not wanting to share revenue. So why wont the same thing happen in Oz?

I think Hulu would love to launch in a number of Countries, but the problem is that the TV networks have their own websites now. So why would they share revenue with Hulu? A single destination to watch all catch up shows is a good one though. Lets hope the Aussies get Hulu.

It seems like a good news for us that now we can watch hulu outside US. Many countries waiting for launching Hulu in their areas, so that the problem has been solved.

Hopefully we will have it down here soon via smart TV's, until then I guess its just via the laptop with a VPN
