Periscope says its users watch a staggering 110 years worth of live video daily

On Saturday, Periscope officially turned one year old. To celebrate, it’s releasing some statistics — and they’re impressive.

With over 200 million broadcasts over the course of its first year, Periscope now says we watch a whopping 110 years of video per day.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

For comparison, we were watching 40 years worth of video every day just seven moths ago, according to Periscope.

Periscope didn’t say how many users it had, but it’s likely that number rose steadily as well. Last time Periscope discussed its ‘hours watched’ metric, it claimed 10 million users.

Here’s another interesting statistic: that 110 years is only Android and iOS. Periscope doesn’t count Web, replays or streams viewed via Twitter.

It’s a shocking metric, but an impressive one that shows live video is something we’re into in a big way.
