Hulu coming to Xbox 360? Empty Hulu coming to Xbox 360?

AfterDawn: According to an interview with the NYTimes, Microsoft's Shane Kim seems to suggest a deal with Hulu may be in the works that will allow Xbox 360 owners to use the excellent video streaming service.

Their deal with Netflix, the company's first streaming partner, is "just beginning to scratch the surface.” Kim also noted that they were looking to add a music service as well. (Most likely Zune, but you never know)

The interview, paraphrased says, "He argued that while there may be hundreds of video sites, most of the activity is concentrating on a handful of sites like Hulu and YouTube. So his first instinct is cut a handful of deals that integrate the Xbox more deeply into such sites."

A deal would make great sense for both parties. Hulu would gain audience and advertising revenue and Microsoft would be able to turn their console into a very formidable video streaming hub.

Obviously there could be no deal at all in the works. We will keep you updated.
