Olympics drive record usage of BBC iPlayer

The London Olympics drove record usage of the BBC iPlayer catch-up service, according to the BBC, with 196 million requests during the month of August. Usage on mobile and tablet devices also broke records, contributing almost a fifth of total requests in the month.

The BBC’s data includes all scheduled TV channel output but excludes the 24 web-only sports streams produced for the Olympics.

Jane Weedon, Director of Business Development for BBC Future Media will be giving the opening keynote on Wednesday 17 October at Streaming Media Europe. To attend the keynote for free, register here.
