Former Hulu CEO Kilar unveils latest startup, Vessel

Vessel has several investors lined up already, including Benchmark, Greylock Partners and Bezos Expeditions, and Kilar said in a post on the new Vessel website that he has assembled a "unique and talented team" that sees "an opportunity to improve media, particularly next generation video."
