Hulu couldn’t find any serious suitors for an acquisition last time it was on the block, but 2013 is a completely different story. Yahoo, Time Warner Cable and DirecTV are each among the companies offering serious cash for the movie and TV show streaming service, and a new report suggests AT&T may soon enter the fray with a joint bid. AllThingsD reports that AT&T and The Chernin Group are in talks to make a play for Hulu, though the amount the pair might offer is not currently known. The Chernin Group had previously bid $500 million for Hulu this past April, however a series of more recent bids have reportedly reached as high as $1 billion.
