Internet vid service sees spike in users, streams

Hulu continued to grow at a lightning speed in 2009. The Internet vid service jointly owned by News Corp., NBC Universal and Disney (which became an equity partner earlier this year) saw its user base spike to 43.7 million in November, up from 22.4 million in November 2008. And the number of vid streams served up rocketed more than 300% in November, to 923.8 million, compared to the year-ago mark.

Hulu won’t release viewership stats for individual programs, but on Wednesday it released a list of its top 25 shows, movie trailers and search terms for the past 12 months.
