For the first time, olympic coverage is being streamed both on nbcolympics.com and on the NBC app. Right now the streaming audience is forecasted to have grown by 300% since London. By the end of the games, it may become the most watched online event in history. Many of this traffic comes from tablet and TV apps. We’re in the olympic spirit, so we’ve decided to give away apps the rest of the month. Akamai is reporting major increases in traffic.
Starting today, any trial or paid account will come with a free AmazonFireTV app. That’s a $750 savings. We’ll help you get the app designed, we’ll build it for you, and you can start broadcasting your live and archived content right from your own branded FireTV app. Now that’s a gold-medal win for you.
