For those still processing #CES2023, it's ok, there was a lot of data shared there. 124 Terabytes to be exact (transmitted over 2800 @coxbusiness Wifi access points and 56,000 connected devices on the show floor). That's 12x what Hubble Telescope transmits in a year… pic.twitter.com/0nMofqFmDz

“We would estimate… roughly half of [Hulu’s] membership is on the ad tier. It’s a multibillion-dollar business for them already, and that’s a domestic business, U.S. only. So lower reach, lower engagement than us… But I just want to emphasize it’s a multiyear path, so we’re not going to be larger than Hulu in year one. But hopefully, over the next several years, we can be at least as large… We wouldn’t get into a business like this if we didn’t believe it could be bigger than at least 10% of our revenue and hopefully much more over time in that mix as we grow.”
