BBC iPlayer had its biggest week ever beginning on 16 February, chalking up a milestone 75m requests.
Much of this spike came from audiences looking to catch up on the 30th anniversary episodes of EastEnders.
Total requests were at 299m overall for February, making it a successful month given that February is three days shorter than January. There were an average of 10.7m daily requests, and it was the best month ever for requests to TV programmes, with an average of 8.6m requests a day
BBC iPlayer mobile consumption continues to rise. In February, mobile and tablet requests increased to 52% of all requests to TV programmes on BBC iPlayer – the highest level seen to date
