The BBC released the internal stat for the number of streams across the BBC Sport site and iPlayer streaming service, and said that the most streamed single match was Rafael Nadal and Gilles Muller’s July 10 match at 1.4 million requests.
The BBC also said that during the second week of the tournament a weekly record of 2.1m unique browsers signed into BBC Sport to take advantage of a more personalised service, including news alerts and a customised My Sport page.
The BBC announced in May that it will soon make all iPlayer users create passwords and log-in in order to access the video-on-demand service.
“It’s great to see so many users signing in for a better, more personalised experience during Wimbledon,” said Neil Hall, head of product, BBC Sport.
“It’s something we know audiences want and we continue to improve how they can follow the sports they love. We also know that people come to us for the big moments, so we’re delighted to see more people streaming the tournament than ever before.”
