jiocinema: GT vs MI match sets new world record with 2.57 crore concurrent viewers

Mumbai: JioCinema, the official digital streaming partner of the IPL, has set a new world record of 2.57 crore concurrent viewers who witnessed the sensational century by Shubhman Gill in the first innings of Qualifier 2 of the IPL 2023 between Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians.

The previous record was held by Disney+ Hotstar, which had 2.53 crore concurrent viewers during the India vs. New Zealand semi-final in the ICC 2019 World Cup.

JioCinema said its IPL 2023 presentation has continuously set new benchmarks and shattered records almost every week through the season, evidence of cricket fans’ preference.

On April 17, 2.4 crore viewers came together to watch MS Dhoni’s CSK defend against a high-octane run chase from Royal Challengers Bangalore with bated breath at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. This record was set after bettering the one set on April 12th, when peak concurrency touched 2.2 crore, and again when Dhoni almost pulled off another heist against the Rajasthan Royals.

“We are thrilled to announce that JioCinema has set a ground-breaking milestone by breaking the world record of concurrent viewers on digital,” said Viacom18 Sports CEO Anil Jayaraj. “It is a testament to our constant endeavour to offer an unparalleled experience of the IPL to fans and viewers across every corner of the country. The achievement reinforces our commitment to deliver world-class sports action, no matter the scale, and motivates us to constantly push the boundaries of live sports streaming.”
