Hulu now has 43 million monthly users, according to comScore. That’s double last year’s number. They watched 924 million streams in the most recently measured 30-day period. That’s triple last year’s count, meaning the average Hulu user watches more clips now than they did in 2008. The site’s TV archive now totals over 14,000 hours, although episodes of most shows are rotated in and out rather than hosted permanently.
