Hulu, the entertainment portal which is also the biggest online video advertising platform, having served nearly one billion ads last month, provides double the return to advertisers, compared to television, says Kevin McGurn, VP of Sales for Hulu.
In this interview with Beet.TV, he says that the ad load, meaning the advertising minutes within a long form television show, is half of television. He tells Beet.TV that Hulu is on track to reach $500 million in sales this year.
Hulu is reported to being shopped to potential buyers this week.
McGurn was a panelist at yesterday's Beet.TV Online Video Leadership webcast. The entire session can be found here.
