Google-owned video sharing website YouTube has recently registered its largest streaming ever during the live webcast of the U2 concert which was watched by millions of people across the globe, according to reports from Variety Magazine.
As many as 10 million of internet users swarmed to the web to stream the U2 live concert from the world’s most popular video-streaming website, which is perhaps a record for an internet streamed event.
The website claimed that the concert was streamed across the world. It was broadcasted live from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on last Sunday.
Chris Maxcy, the chief of the music partnerships for YouTube, touted the huge event on the website by saying, “This was a big win for the YouTube community”, according to Variety.
The full two-and-a-half hour rendition by the group is still available on the website, with the rebroadcasted version of the video being viewed by a whopping 1.1 million users three days after it was originally broadcasted.
The event has undoubtedly heralded a new era for the Google-owned site, as it could presumably embolden other music groups to go for live streaming of their shows, particularly after seeing the massive reach the website exhibited in the event.
