HuluThe owners of video streaming site Hulu called off talks with Time Warner Cable Inc over the cable operator’s plan to take a 25 percent stake after failing to agree on a price, according to two people with knowledge of the negotiations. Hulu’s owners – Walt Disney Co, 21st Century Fox and NBC owner Comcast Corp – began talks with Time Warner Cable in early July when they failed to attract satisfactory bids in an auction of the service. The talks may resume, but none are planned for now, according to one source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were private. Hulu and Fox declined to comment. Time Warner Cable and Disney did not immediately return calls seeking comment. The reported end of the latest round of discussions marks another blow for Hulu and its media conglomerate owners, which last shopped the five-year-old video service unsuccessfully in 2011.
