The BBC says its coverage on this year’s Glastonbury on iPlayer broke all previous records.
Across the event, content was streamed a record 34.1 million times, with 23 million of those streams for live content – the highest on record for a BBC programme brand.
Streams increased by 116 per cent on BBC iPlayer compared to 2019, the last time the festival was last held (when it reached 15.8 million streams).
The BBC said its data included Friday 10th June to Monday 27th June 2022 – and compared to the same days in 2019.
Viewers were able to stream acts on the Pyramid Stage in Ultra HD, although the BBC has not released specific numbers for the UHD stream.
Lorna Clarke, BBC director of music said: “The BBC provided the ultimate armchair experience of the world’s best-loved festival this weekend with a dedicated Glastonbury channel on BBC iPlayer, and over 35 hours of coverage across our TV channels.
“The party isn’t over yet, with over 90 sets and key tracks from the five filmed stages available to watch on BBC iPlayer – including Pyramid Stage performances in Ultra High Definition.”
