A deal which will see DirecTV (DTV +0.1%) purchase Hulu (CMCSA, DIS, NWS) by the end of the month is imminent, sources tell PandoDaily. The acquisition would fill a large void in DirecTV's offerings which would be difficult to build from ground up and also allow it to play some defense against Hulu falling into a rival's hands.

    This would be spectacular for DTV. Content agreements would be a concern but what a nice acquisition.
