Two words: Tim Howard!
What an incredible performance by the U.S. goalkeeper — a World Cup record breaking 16 saves! The entire U.S. team had us all hoping and wishing for more and it’s sad that the run has come to an end. The World Cup will go on, just as it did four years ago when Ghana sent the U.S. home, and a new team will be crowned champion in just under two weeks time. But you cannot say these past few weeks didn’t have you completely inspired and glued to your TV, PC/Mac, tablet or phone.
We’ve been analyzing the data on our end and it’s incredible to see how so many watched using their Slingboxes and other Sling-enabled devices. As you can see from the graphic below, customers tuned in via Sling. What’s more, these numbers outpaced the Super Bowl viewing this past year. While that does make sense to the degree that this game was during the work week while the Super Bowl is on a Sunday, we know how much our customers love their American Football and the Super Bowl is like no other event. Well, until now that is!
Enjoy the rest of the World Cup and keep on slinging!
