Best month on record for iPlayer

Just a month after claiming 2017 was 'the best year ever for iPlayer' the BBC has reported a record 328 million programme requests on iPlayer in January, marking “the best month on record” for the catch-up service.

Dan McGolpin, Controller of Programming and Daytime at the BBC said: “2018 has got off to a flying start, thanks in no small part to a range of gripping BBC dramas. McMafia, Hard Sun and Silent Witness dominate our most popular programmes on iPlayer for January, as does the always strong-performing EastEnders. It was also impressive to see the wildlife series Big Cats make this month’s top five performing series with an average of over 1 million requests per episode. It’s been a great start to the year, and we’re aiming to build on that success in the coming months.”
