The official digital streaming partner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, JioCinema garnered a global record of 3.2 crore concurrent viewers during the Final between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Gujarat Titans (GT) on Monday, May 29.
JioCinema earlier smashed the world record that had been established by Disney+ Hotstar, which was set at 25.3 million in July 2019 and remained unbroken for many years till the IPL 2023 broadcast on JioCinema witnessed the world record surpassed multiple times.
The IPL 2023 final had the most concurrent viewers of any live-streamed event. The audience peaked at 32 million concurrent viewers when Sai Sudharsan was batting on 96.
The OTT platform’s streaming plan, which included free streaming of the whole IPL 2023 competition, resulted in many world viewership records being smashed throughout the season.
Nevertheless, a couple of factors that remained constant in such concurrent viewership world records being broken were CSK and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
