Hulu CEO Jason Kilar told CNBC the company's revenues should be in the $260 million range, an 8 percent bump from the $240 million he forecast last month for the catch-up TV service.
Kilar says the increase is due primarily to rising demand for the $8-a-month Hulu Plus subscription service it rolled out of beta in November, and better sales by its advertising service.
Last year, Hulu earned some $108 million.
