Comcast doesn't plan on locking Hulu behind a paywall once it's given the keys to NBC Universal. In a deal valued at about $37 billion that ends General Electric's majority control of NBC Universal, the US cable giant is set to become a media superpower that not only oversees how television shows are distributed, but also how …
They'll Find a Way
Greed evolves. They'll find a way to change things to both screw their customers as well as customers of competitors.
If Comcast says 'no'
Then I've got a feelin'
When Hulu goes down
We'll go back to stealin'
Nope, they won't create a paywall...
They'll destroy the web site completely.
They will hurt us.

Hulu will become the laughing stock and will be like the lack luster tv shows of the 1980's when cable gobbled up all the coolest shows and give us nothing but dead end repeats for years and years. That was when I turned TV off and started playing outside.

shows from the 80s... like "V"?
