Great news! Hulu will not start charging for its services in 2010. A source inside of the Internet-TV hub tells EW that the site is committed to remaining free. If any pay content is added, which is only speculation at this point, it will be on top of what Hulu already offers.
This should calm the frayed nerves of all of those Hulu devotees, ourselves included, who nearly ate their computers last week when News Corp. deputy chairman Chase Carey said “[Hulu] needs to evolve to have a meaningful subscription model as part of its business.” What a relief. We’re going to celebrate with an episode of WKRP in Cincinnati.
Will Hulu stop being free? In a word, no. [Holloywood Insider/EW]
