Livestream Claims Average Video Viewing Time of Sixteen Minutes

SAN FRANCISCO -- Livestream, the New York-based live webcast platform, had 2.9 million unique viewers in the United States in October, consuming 137 million video views, according to comScore.

CEO Max Haot tells Beet.TV in this interview that the average viewing time for these videos is sixteen minutes, rivaling the engagement for long form videos such as Hulu.

At the New Tee Vee Live conference last in San Francisco last month, Haot talks about the value of this engagement and the opportunities for growth in the live streaming sector.

Disclosure: Beet.TV uses Livestream for live interviews and events but has no financial arrangement with the company.
