No Hulu for You

Hulu’s owners — Disney, News Corp. and Comcast, which respectively own ABC, Fox and NBC — want to ruin the future of TV.1 If they have their way, you’ll need a cable subscription to watch any TV show on the Internet.

They want to move to a so-called “authentication” system that would allow only cable TV subscribers to access shows on Hulu.

It’s just the latest in their ongoing efforts to derail Internet innovation and control the future of television. Sign this letter to stop Disney, News Corp. and Comcast from putting the Internet genie back in the bottle.

Tell Hulu’s owners: You can’t stop the future of TV.

Dear Brian Roberts, Bob Iger and Rupert Murdoch:

Hulu has created a revolution in how millions watch TV — putting control over what we watch in the hands of viewers. But your decision to allow only cable subscribers to access TV shows on Hulu would take away all that.

The Internet is the future of TV. Stop trying to derail innovation. Reverse your backwards decision to restrict access to TV programming online.
