The video streaming service Hulu is amassing a long list of suitors, and Yahoo has reportedly joined the bunch.

The bid was reported by Reuters and AllThingsD, though Yahoo declined to comment for them as for SocialTimes.

The move in many ways would make sense for Yahoo, which many of its recent short-lived CEOs, most notably Ross Levinsohn, referred to as a media company. Yet, Marissa Mayer has seemed to re-orient Yahoo as a tech company.

Other bidders for Hulu, owned by News Corp, Disney and Comcast, include Directtv, Time Warner Cable, Guggenheim Digital and The Chernin Group.

Hulu’s brought in nearly $700 million in revenue last year and continues to draw new users. Its corporate parents are allegedly deciding whether to sell the property.
