BBC iPlayer hits 100 million per month mark

The iPlayer is seemingly going from strength to strength, with the BBC announcing it is now serving 100 million requests every month.

Those were the stats for December 2009, in another record breaking performance for the catch-up TV and radio service.

The 100 million requests included 1.3 million watching David Tennant’s last episode of Doctor Who.

And the week beginning December 14th was a record for radio requests, thanks to two major events.

There was the final Wake Up To Wogan show (an oxymoron if ever there was one – Put Back To Sleep By Wogan would surely be more appropriate), and also the battle for the Christmas number one (good on Rage Against the Machine).

Erik Huggers, Director of Future Media and Technology at the BBC, commented: “Breaking the 100 million barrier is a great way to kick off 2010 and these figures show that by offering simple and varied access to BBC iPlayer people are really finding it easy to catch up with their favourite programmes at a time that suits them.”
