It is only September and it has already been an incredible news year: millions of people have tuned-in to live coverage of historic events such as the Arab Spring, the earthquake in Japan and the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
As a result the number of people who visit Livestation also reached record levels several months in a row. But the other day I was curious to see how many people have visited Livestation in 2011 – I was so impressed with the results that I wanted to share them with you.
Over 53M unique visitors have visited the Livestation website in 2011 where they spent an average of 18 minutes which means Livestation is now one of the top 5,000 sites in the world (according to Alexa). I especially liked the fact that 83% are returning visitors which shows that people really like our product.
But let’s not forget our non-web users: millions of people use our versatile desktop app (2M) and our mobile site (0.7M). Less than three months ago we launched the Livestation iPhone/iPad app and already more than 50 thousand people download the app each month consuming over a million streams a month!
Our product offering has also grown substantially this year, we now offer 38 channels in an impressive 11 different languages. Some of our latest partners include Libya TV, ITN and Bahrain TV.
Livestation has had a fantastic 2011 already but it is only getting better. In the next few months we will be launching our first Android app, a Connected TV app, several flagship channels and a beautiful website redesign.
So watch this space. Or better: watch Livestation!
