Google is among the companies thinking about buying Hulu, according to a report today in the L.A. Times.But the talks seem VERY preliminary — Hulu has been shopping around for a sale for a few weeks now, and has also supposedly talked to Yahoo and Microsoft.

A Google deal might set off alarm bells with antitrust regulators — Google already owns YouTube, which is the biggest provider of online video by far, and the company is being investigated in both Europe and the U.S. for a bunch of things.

The meetings are being set up by Hulu’s financial advisors, Morgan Stanley and Guggenheim.
