Hulu now boasts 17 million subscribers

The show also helped get Hulu 10 Emmys in September and was one of Hulu's top three watched dramas previous year.

Also past year, Hulu finally garnered some awards prestige by nabbing 10 Emmy Awards for "The Handmaid's Tale", including the first best drama series Emmy won by a streaming service, and two Golden Globes, including best drama series.

The streaming service announced Thursday that it has grown to more than 17 million subscribers, up by more than 5 million since its last reported numbers from May 2016.

Still, Hulu still has a long way to go before it comes close to catching streaming giant Netflix, which boasted 52.8 million domestic streaming subscribers at the end of the third quarter of 2017.

Additionally, the company announced that its total audience grew to 54 million total unique viewers, up from 47 million in May 2017. On Sunday, "The Handmaid's Tale" won the Golden Globe award for best TV drama, with series star Elisabeth Moss also grabbing the award for best actress. Aside from critical acclaim for "The Handmaid's Tale", the company also introduced a live TV service.

But 2017 was a big year for Hulu. In total, Hulu's library now holds 1,700 TV titles and 75,000 episodes.

"We took several major steps to become a 21 century direct-to-consumer media company, evolving into both an aggressive SVOD business and a formidable new live TV provider", said Hulu CEO Randy Freer in a written statement.

Advertising revenue hit a milestone of its own in 2017, reaching $1 billion for the first time.

Hulu's consumer base still trails the more than 50 million Netflix subscribers in the U.S. As of September 2017, for another point of comparison, AT&T had 25 million video subscribers in the U.S.

The top three comedies, also based on hours watched, were "South Park", "Family Guy" and "Bob's Burgers".
