bbciplayerThe number of BBC iPlayer requests fell to 257 million in April, a fact the BBC is attributing to British Summer time as well as the Easter holidays. However, the average daily requests remained high with an average of 7.9 million daily requests. Weekly requests were also strong, peaking at 57 million in the second and third weeks of the month the BBC announced today.
Requests from tablets continue to outnumber requests from mobiles with both mobile and table usage making up 30% of overall requests or 75 million requests in total.

The Funeral of Baroness Thatcher was the second-most requested live TV programme ever on BBC iPlayer (only topped by the London 2012 Olympics) with almost 1m requests (986k)—832k of which were live streams.
