Yahoo Might Make Another Attempt at Buying Hulu

Between the Flickr and Tumblr announcements, Yahoo was able to find a way to stay in the news during Microsoft's Xbox week. Now, Yahoo is being mentioned along with some big media names, outside of bringing SNL to their platform.

In a move that is reminiscent of 2010, Yahoo has been said to be "seriously interested" in Hulu and has put in another bid. This happened before, except Yahoo backed out after Hulu backed out because of Disney not agreeing with some of the processes. In this rendition of their dance together, this now puts Yahoo in the running along with DirecTV and Chernin Group who are all considering buying Hulu at this point.

AllThingsD is reporting that Yahoo's CEO Marissa Mayer met with Hulu to continue their talks from several years ago. Yahoo and Hulu have both declined to comment on the matter but this latest push to buy up the Internet might actually work in Yahoo's favor.
