NBC Sports Digital's live stream of the Super Bowl last Sunday didn't disappoint; records were broken on the field and online. Tom Brady set Super Bowl records for most completions in a game and most career touchdown passes. Meanwhile, NBC Sports Live Extra averaged a Super Bowl record-breaking 800,000 viewers per minute and peak of 1.3 million concurrent users across desktops and tablets.
For content distribution of its live stream of Super Bowl XLIX, NBC Sports Digital has again turned to Akamai to help deliver the online experience through its NBC Sports Live Extra streaming service. Live events and live sports are not unfamiliar to us at Akamai. We just wrapped up 2014 with record traffic and viewership for multi-day events including the Winter Olympics and the World Cup.
