BBC reports record-breaking 57 million streams for Birmingham 2022

"We are thrilled to achieve a record-breaking Games," said Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport

The BBC says its coverage of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham was streamed a record-breaking 57.1 million times during the 11-day event.

That’s over six times the amount of streams seen in previous years, with a total of 9 million for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and 8.2 million for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, said the broadcaster.

Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport, said: “All corners of the BBC have been right at the heart of the action in Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games and we are proud to have brought the best of the live action and medal moments to our audiences.

“In what has been an already unforgettable summer of sport, we are thrilled to achieve a record-breaking Games and to further showcase Birmingham as a dynamic, exciting city with a truly rich heritage.”
