royal wedding breaks live streaming records

Sheen's Korner has got NOTHING on the royal wedding!

Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding livestream broke a record with "300,000 concurrent viewers at 6 a.m. ET on Friday morning." Wowsa!

Livestream's CEO Max Haot says he's expecting "at least 2 million" viewers tuning in by the time the broadcast is complete.

Not only has the royal wedding broke records for the company live stream, but it's broken Internet live streaming records in general, and according to reports, its “concurrent live streams of Royal Wedding on Akamai surpassed the 1.6M peak set by World Cup in June of 2010.”

Impressive! Then again, this doesn't surprise us!

Who WOULDN'T want to tune in for such an exciting, momentous occasion???

Did U watch a live stream of the royal wedding on the Internet?

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing tonight, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.

    I didn't watch those fake celebrities get married. What the hell does the UK need royalty for anyway?? I know this, not a penny of their government's money had better have got into it, esp since they just fired ("layed-off') a 1/5 of their workers.

    I didn't watch it live, i was in my bed asleep! But i did DVR it, didn't watch the whole thing just the main parts. I was intrigued by all the buzz it was causing. It seemed like a nice wedding, best of luck to them! :D
    Btw, her dress was fab :)

    I downed Absinthe instead. CBF really. It's their private moment it shouldn't be broadcast like this.

    Why are Americans so jealous of or royalty?:s
    Our royalty makes us diffrent from others countries and not boring! And they waste money on the wedding but how much money will it have brought in from tourists?!
    They get london tourists and they make the country diffrent,god how borin would it be with just a primeminster:/

    America stick with crappy Obama,your fast food and Kim Kardashian!

    I did stay up and watch it. Tuned in for 'just a minute' and got sucked in completely and am bleary eyed today. It was on ten channels on my remote display, plus it was on LIVE on the official HRH 'Royal Channel' on youtube, where I believe you can watch archived footage again. Yes, The Royal Family has its own youtube channel(s), and they're professional and well done.

    I am from Australia and did watch it am not ashamed to admit it. Would rather watch that then American trashy show such as Kardashians, Snooky, Kendra or who ever else you consider as your Royalty.
    Americans are a bit pissed because your country is becoming a joke and losing respect, nothing that America puts on will have so many people watch.



  14. 14

    No. I watched it on my tv.. SkyNews is Fox's sister station, so started airing the prep and everything at midnight est.

    Re: Anabella Smart – You're an idiot. The reason why everyone was making a big deal about it is SOLELY BECAUSE the media was shoving it down our fucking throats. Same goes for England. Most brits can give two shits about this. Same for America and the rest of Euro countries. Only reason why people tuned in was because of the media hyping the shit up so people got "curious". It's the same as America's superbowl or the rest of the worlds world cup..Overhyped by the media to the point people just go "oh hey let me watch it because thats what everyone else is doing"

    Again, You're an idiot. Royals are beyond useless. MORE useless than people like Snookie. At least our reality twats don't leech off TAX PAYERS DIME to live a life of luxury. All royals these days are solely a tourist attraction. Monarchy shouldn't even exist anymore.

    Re: mattihilton – We're not jealous. You're an idiot. We just do not care about royals. We do not care that two random useless people are getting married. But its getting shoved down our throats by our media for some odd reason..We JUST..DO NOT..CARE.

    Re: NookiesWA – I'm sorry, but the 2 billion people who watched it on TV (That's almost a THIRD of the ENTIRE POPULATION) beg to differ. Nobody cares, my arse…

    Re: mattihilton – lets take a trip down memory lane, shall we? a little thing i like to call the revolutionary war. remember when we kicked your ass to gain our freedom and not be controlled by the royal family? so jealous? ha. not so much. yea, the media is obnoxiously reporting it, but this is america, its all about the benjamins, baby. were merely profiting off of something we dont care at all about. you think youre special that you continue an outdated custom and youre referred to as a commoner? ha, whatever floats your boat. you can keep your old ass, prude of a queen, who, by the way, does nothing. and thanks, i will keep my historic 1st black president. and yes, you can keep eating and watching the fast food, shows and movies that made their way over to your country. consider it our gift to you.

    I'm sorry but this to all those who are bitching about the wedding!!

    Ok yeah it might have cost a lot of money to do but number 1 millions of people got joy out of watching it, number 2 the Royal family and the wedding alone bring so much money into the country its unreal, number 3 its there wedding day are you telling me if you didn't have the money you wouldn't spend it? number 4 they have set up donations pages so anyone that wanted to give them some money or a wedding present donated it to charity instead and number 5 they are the Royal family they are born into a life where they get followed by press all the time surely they deserve this?

    Also people complaining that they didn't let protesters in!! Its their wedding day give them a break!!

    I am not a royalist it just annoys me people are complaining about something in the news that is finally happy!
