Add KKR and Silver Lake Management to the list of bidders for Hulu (CMCSA, DIS, NWS), according to Bloomberg. Earlier reports indicated Time Warner Cable (TWC -0.8%), Guggenheim Digital, and DirecTV (DTV -0.6%) are in the hunt. What to watch: Some analysts think Hulu could evolve into a payment authentication system for the cable industry, while others bet that a single media/tech company will snap up the firm to create a unique position for itself in video - either as a premium streaming service or an ad-supported content monster. Either way Netflix (NFLX -0.5%) is watching.
