Video hosting options?

Where do sites like Hulu and YouTube host their videos?

I want to develop my own video sharing portal and am wondering what kind of back end logistics I should consider. For application, I'm thinking MySQL / PHP. But don't know about hosting options.

I'm not an expert in this area, but if you expect a lot of visitors then your traffic will be extremely high, with the $$$ very high as well.  Google hosts their own videos, not sure of Hulu but they probably host their own as well.
For a startup try http://www.cirtexhosting.com/video-hosting.shtml 
They have plans starting at $2.99 and are video steaming specialists who include streaming software with your package.
For more serious storage and bandwidth, try
http://streamhoster.com/on_demand_streaming.html who list plans up to 10 terabytes.
