The long-form video content site lost viewers in June, but is serving over double the amount of ads as its competitors.
Despite the fact it attracted fewer unique users in June than it did in April, viewers on Hulu were exposed to more video ads than on any other major video property during the course of the month.
According to comScore's Video Metrix service, Hulu served an average of 24.2 video ads per user in June, over double the frequency of all the other video properties the measurement firm tracks. ESPN served the second most ads per user with an average of 12, followed by Microsoft sites with 9.2 ads per user.
Despite Google's continued dominance of the online video space, and the fact that its sites attracted over seven times more unique viewers than Hulu during the course of the month, Hulu actually served up almost three times as many video ads. It's important to note, however, that the majority of advertiser content on Google's YouTube site is delivered in the form of overlays and banner ads, neither of which are included in comScore's metrics, which count streaming video ads only.
Overall, Hulu's unique audience in June stood at 24 million, down considerably from the 38 million it attracted in April. That dip could well be attributed to the summer season, however.
