Visitors overflow at BBC’s Cup site

Pubcaster claims streaming success with over 1.7 mil requests for live games

LONDON — The BBC’s soccer World Cup Web site has received 200 million page impressions in its first two weeks, with around 3 million unique users every day.

The pubcaster also claims that broadband streaming of matches has been a technical and viewing success with more than 1.7 million requests for live games.

BBC director of Sport Roger Mosey said: “BBC Sport said from the start this would be a World Cup in which we offered unprecedented choice — different platforms, new technology and an increasing range of options for viewers and listeners. These figures show we’ve done just that, and the audience are loving it.”

This is the first major soccer tournament where U.K. online users — the service is only available in Blighty — have been able to watch games via broadband.

On average matches have been seen by 75,157 viewers with a daily average of 144,052 requests.
