Online video site Hulu hit a milestone — in December it streamed over a billion videos.
The latest numbers, out today from Comscore reveal that the number of videos Hulu streamed quadrupled from December 2008 to December 2009. And Hulu's unique visitors grew to over 44 million, up from just 24.5 million a year earlier.
Co-owned by Disney, NBC Universal, News Corp, and Providence Equity Partners, Hulu only launched in March 2008. Though its monthly traffic is roughly on par with what YouTube draws every single day, the company points out that it has become *the* destination for recent TV content
Hulu CEO Jason Kilar spoke to me exclusively about the big numbers. He refused to answer my question about whether Hulu is profitable, but check out the full interview for our discussions about the company's growth and revenues.
