Hulu Plus tops 5 million subscribers, promises more original content

Hulu will pass the $1 billion mark in revenue for 2013, marking an increase of nearly one-third over its 2012 revenues. This according to a post last week on Hulu’s official blog. Since 2010, the television and movie-streaming service’s revenue has more than tripled, and revenues are up nearly $900 million since 2009.
