Hulu mulls putting itself up for sale

Online video service Hulu is exploring putting itself up for sale after receiving an unsolicited takeover offer, a person familiar with the matter said Tuesday. The offer was large enough to make Hulu's board review the deal and consider seeking other potential buyers, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions are confidential. The person would not disclose the amount of the offer nor the bidder. Hulu has become one of the biggest purveyors of television shows and movies on the Internet through its free site and via an $8-per-month subscription plan that gives users a deeper library of shows from ABC, Fox and NBC. The free site is available on computers, but the subscription plan allows for viewing over a wide array of Internet-connected game consoles and mobile devices.

Decide.com Brings Price Prediction To Gadgets

With consumer electronics changing so quickly, it's hard to know when is the best time to buy. Should you wait for that new TV you've been wanting, since a new model is about to be released? A new website, Decide.com, will tell you to "Wait" or "Buy" based on when a new model is expected to be released. Decide bases the recommendation on past model releases, news reports, and the like. Decide was founded by two executives from Farecast, Oren Etzioni and Mike Fridgen, who are bringing that price prediction idea to a new area: gadgets. Farecast, which was acquired by Microsoft in 2008, was a popular website that predicted when airline flight prices would be at their cheapest. Seattle-based Decide provides price predictions for laptops, televisions and cameras to start, and plans to expand to other types of products such as cell phones soon.

Google acquires SageTV in likely push to rekindle Google TV

SageTV in a notice to its users said on Saturday that it had been bought out by Google. The open-source home theater software developer said it signed onboard because of a "shared vision for open technology" that would move their Internet-focused experience. They hoped to reach an "even larger audience" on different products, platforms, and services, hinting it wouldn't necessarily be limited to Android. The takeover has angered some users since it has already pulled its store and most other links aside from the company forums, making it difficult to get a copy of SageTV itself. Google hasn't commented on what its intentions would be, although most already suspect the company is being bought to improve the struggling Google TV platform. A revival of the platform is already planned with an Android 3.1 upgrade that will give it heavily requested third-party app support along with new hardware from Samsung and Vizio. SageTV's experience in the field, particularly with DVR-like recording, may signal an intent to add recording to Google TV and work it into cable and satellite set-top boxes, not just stand-alone hardware that needs a separate set-top to integrate with regular TV.
