CBS: 3 Million Stream the Super Bowl
NEW YORK -- The CBSSports.com, NFL.com and NFL Mobile from Verizon live stream of Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday set multiple viewership records for a single game sporting event in the United States and also made history as the most social telecast ever, according to data provided by Omniture and third-party monitoring firms. Online, the CBSSports.com live stream of the matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens attracted three million unique viewers to the Super Bowl XLVII video player, up 43 percent from Super Bowl XLVI. Viewers generated nearly 10 million live video streams, up more than 100 percent from last year, resulting in a record 114.4 million minutes streamed, which was up 46 percent over last year's game. Sunday also marked the largest recorded audience in CBSSports.com’s history, as viewers streamed the game live, watched Beyonce’s half-time performance (the first time a Super Bowl halftime performance has been streamed live online in the U.S.), viewed alternative camera angles, connected with friends and followers socially and watched broadcast commercials again on-demand.
