Its future may be uncertain, but when it comes to watching television online, users still prefer Hulu, it seems. According to ComScore’s new Digital Year in Review report, Hulu’s audience watched 19.4 million minutes of video, more than twice as much as the combined total of video streamed from the websites of ABC, CBS, the CW, Fox and NBC.

That said, the individual sites massively outstripped Hulu in terms of growth, growing 82% (to 9.7 billion minutes) in terms of time spent watching video compared with just 17% for Hulu; overall, online video viewing grew by 33% in total minutes from September to December 2010.
