HULU Growth is breaking video on demand records

Hulu has announced that its subscriber base surpassed 17 million customers in 2017.

The streaming company last revealed its subscriber numbers in May 2016, when it reported a following of 12 million paying customers. That’s up 40% over the last year and a half.

Additionally, the company announced that its total audience grew to 54 million total unique viewers, up from 47 million in May 2017.

Its increased rate of growth can be attributed to Hulu’s growing catalogue of licensed and award-winning original content.

In 2017, the streaming service expanded its content library to over 75,000 episodes of television across 1700 titles – more than twice the number of episodes available on any of the other leading streaming services, according to Hulu Internal Data and Ampere Analysis.
