MSN sets a new online video record

8 07 2007


MSN has disclosed that it had served 10 million video streams by 15oo hrs eastern during yesterday’s Live Earth event, yielding “the most simultaneous viewers of any online concert ever”. I’ll update this post should consolidated figures emerge. This compares with around 5 million unique accessing AOL video streams of Live 8 in 2005, peaking at 175,000 simultaneous video streams; while the BBC’s World Cup streams attracted 1.7 million requests for live games.
