News Corp COO: Hulu to charge for access
News Corp says that Hulu, its jointly owned free online video site, will start charging fees for access at some point in the future.
Chase Carey, News Corp's president and chief operating officer, says subscription fees could come as early as 2010. News Corp says it hasn't decided what form the subscription model would take and right now is concentrating on delivering a good experience for users.
Hulu has struggled to make money despite its popularity as an ad-supported online site for TV shows and movies.
