The BBC served up 24.1 million stream requests across Wimbledon fortnight, the most-streamed Wimbledon to date. 9.2m unique browsers were following BBC Sport’s live coverage.
During the second week of the tournament, BBC Sport established a new record of 2.1 million unique browsers signed into the service, a boost to the corporation’s plan to get its viewers signed up to the BBC ID.
Neil Hall, Head of Product, BBC Sport, says: “It’s great to see so many users signing in for a better, more personalised experience during Wimbledon. It’s something we know audiences want and we continue to improve how they can follow the sports they love. We also know that people come to us for the big moments, so we’re delighted to see more people streaming the tournament than ever before.”
The most popular match was Rafa Nadal and Gilles Muller’s 66-game epic with 1.4 million requests.
