Hulu now has more than four million paying users subscribing to its Hulu Plus service, and the number of subscribers has doubled since last year. The service also streamed more than one billion videos in the first quarter of 2013, which is another record for Hulu.


The numbers were released on Hulu’s blog Tuesday, with Andy Forssell, in his new role as acting CEO, sharing a few other key stats as well:

  • The service now offers around 57,000 hours of content on Hulu and Hulu Plus, including more than 70,000 full TV episodes from nearly 2,500 TV series.
  • Hulu has more than 470 content partners.
  • Hulu has served more than 1000 brand advertisers since launch.
  • Hulu Plus is now available on more than 350 million mobile and connected devices.

Forssell also used his post as well as his appearance at the Newfronts in New York to announce a number of new exclusive productions for the site, as well as the addition of All My Children and One Life To Live.

  1. I had Hulu Plus but I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what I was paying for that I couldn’t get for free. There were ads so that wasn’t it. I gave it up and kept my Netflix.

  2. It’s still cheaper to have a Hulu Plus and Netflix subscription than getting cable, yet the Cable companies can’t seem to figure out that tacking on $30-$50 for TV to an already $50 internet bill is too expensive for people.

    Good for Hulu, I’d like to see what the next year brings them.
