World Cup surpasses 1 billion minutes livestreamed via Telemundo

With the vast majority of World Cup games kicking off during office hours in the United States, the tournament has surpassed more than 1 billion minutes livestreamed via Telemundo Deportes’ streaming through June 25.

To date, the tournament has reached 32 million uniques, generating 73.8 million livestreams, and 1.06 billion total minutes viewed. Streaming across Telemundo Deportes en Vivo app and the website, the average number of unique streamers per game through Telemundo is 894,200. With Telemundo averaging 2,048,063 viewers per World Cup game on US television through June 24, the combination of television plus streaming viewership is impressive to say the least.

Compared to the 2014 World Cup, ESPN averaged 892,000 viewer streamers across the entire competition, so Telemundo has seen a 0.2% increase and we’re only two weeks into the World Cup.

In the 2014 World Cup, the most viewed game digitally was the USA-Belgium Round of 16 match where Univision had 1.8 million uniques. Looking at the data below, you’ll see that the Korea-Mexico game had the same number of uniques, while Argentina-Croatia had 1.6 million.

With the Round of 16 games yet to start and several high-profile teams still featured in the tournament, the expectations are that the streaming records are ready to be broken by Telemundo.
