Bids for the digital-video site Hulu were due Friday, and although general outlines for licensing have been discussed, it is expected that the chosen bidder will have to work out a final deal with Fox, ABC and NBC. The broadcasters want the option to keep at least one of their top-five TV shows each season off of Hulu, and they also want a 30-day window before their content is available on Hulu's free version, sources said.
