Skepticism abounds regarding the likelihood of Apple (AAPL) acquiring Hulu. Ryan Lawler thinks Hulu's independent brand and multi-platform strategy will deter Apple. Peter Kafka sees Hulu's free, ad-supported model as "pretty alien to Apple." And Michael Gartenberg points out that Apple already offers much of Hulu's content for rent or sale.

    Apple simplifies everything, why would they complicate their lives buying into a complicated business model that is not economical .
