Hulu, the popular online destination offering users full episodes of popular television shows with only one advertisement per commercial break, may not stay free for much longer. An announcement from Jon Miller of News Corp. hints that Hulu may move to a subscription model of an undetermined format. Hulu is having trouble selling all of its ad spots, and may be looking for a way to increase revenue. Some fear that making users pay for access to Hulu may drive them to find other avenues of obtaining television for free, including the use of Bittorrent trackers.
