Euronews ads one million viewers

Euronews added almost a million viewers per day between the last quarter of 2009 and the first quarter of 2010, the news broadcaster has announced.

According to a combination of various audience measurement companies, Euronews attracts 6.7 million European viewers each day. Cable and satellite platforms account for 3.1 million viewers, up 480,000, while 3.6 million viewers watch on terrestrial television via Euronews’ shareholder channels. Euronews said that while its audience had increased significantly, its competitors’ ratings increased relatively modestly, with 1.4 million viewers watching CNN International every day and 752, 000 million watching BBC World News.

Euronews broadcasts in nine languages and will add a Persian-language channel by the end of the year.
