The BBC iPlayer stats pack for November 2010 is now available as a PDF.

Nick's been in bed with flu for over a week, so I get to publish the iPlayer stats this month.

Here are the headlines from the Communications Team.

  • In total BBC iPlayer received 141 million requests for TV and radio programmes in November, including both online platforms and devices and BBC iPlayer on Virgin Media TV, setting another new monthly record for the service. This was a month-on-month increase of 1%, with requests up 32% year-on-year.
  • Continuing autumn titles contributed to another record-breaking month for TV requests, with three episodes of The Apprentice topping the list. Comedy continued to perform well, in particular Russell Howard's Good News and The Trip, while Merlin, Spooks and Lip Service contributed to a strong month for drama.
  • The Unbelievable Truth was the most requested radio programme, with The News Quiz and The Chris Moyles Show also popular. It was also a strong month for sport coverage on 5 Live with the football Premier League, and the Haye v Harrison boxing match.
  • Live TV viewing via the BBC iPlayer increased in November to make up 13% of all requests, boosted by Children In Need and sport coverage. Live radio also grew slightly.
