According to Periscope, the ‘Time Watched per Day’ metric has grown significantly since its launch, with users watching the equivalent of “over 40 years of video” every single day. The company explains “We define Time Watched as the aggregate amount of time that people spend watching live broadcasts on iOS & Android.”
