Hulu: Hollywood's hope to hula YouTube into the dust

HULAGIRLS30_01400x266.JPG The San Francisco Chronicle reports on Hulu.com, a would-be challenger to YouTube, created by a coalition of Hollywood studios.

"The initiative, by NBC Universal and News Corp., parent of the Fox television network, is planned as an alternative to YouTube, which dominates Internet video with a mix of amateurish clips of pets behaving badly and pirated concert footage.

... No word on when you'll actually be able to see the clips on Hulu, or it's partners, Yahoo, MySpace, AOL and Microsoft's MSN. But the site is accepting requests to be part of the private beta test, which is expected in October."
