Hulu CEO finally says his departure

Jason Kilar, CEO of Hulu highly respected video service from three major television networks, today announced his resignation shortly before April.

"That is an understatement," Kilar wrote on the company blog, "this message was difficult for me to both write and send. I decided to deviate from Hulu in Q1. I am currently working with the Council to ensure that there is sufficient runway to manage this transition. '

Kilar said Tom Rich, technical director of the company, will leave at the same time. Hulu is owned by NBC Universal, Fox and Disney has deep pockets behind it, but donors did not seem fully engaged in society for some time. In recent years, Hulu has lost ground to Netflix.

"Traditional TV has too many ads," said Killar at his post. "Consumers are increasingly moving to on-demand viewing, in part because of the lighter load announcement." Later in the afternoon Kilar wrote: "Over the last 4 years, studios and networks have not always insisted on per user per month the economy in their digital licensing agreements, which resulted in -assessment regretted their content to digital distribution. "Initially, Kilar has helped transform Hulu into a resounding success. The company has been a leading Internet services to deliver content done by professionals and the audience loved it. Hulu showed that there was a market for television and feature films online. Spectators flocked to the site to watch their favorite shows NBC and Fox on their laptops and PCs.

In its announcement today, Kilar refers to these uncertain times for Hulu.

"Some brave souls who were willing to look past opponents and many nickname" ClownCo "jumped on board and got about the business of innovating and building," Kilar wrote.
