TV3 claims record online viewership for Dotcom interview

John Campbell

TV3 is claiming record online viewership for John Campbell's interview with Kim Dotcom, broadcast last Thursday.

By Monday morning, Nielsen figures showed a record 191,606 streams of the full interview, the broadcaster said, making it the highest published ondemand figure for a single programme in the New Zealand market.

A one-minute version of the interview had been picked up by television networks Rtl Germany NBC America and Reuters, and record-breaking ondemand viewership.

The full interview is online here; read a transcript here.

Although top of the charts for a streamed, long-form programme, the Dotcom interview falls short of all-time hits across any genre - a list that includes the NZTA's Ghost Chips ad (around 1.8 million views), Nek Minute (around 2.5 million) and the immortal Police 10-7 clip Safer Communities Together, aka "always blow on the pie" (around 350,000).

I'm not 100% sure what across any genre means at the end of the article but their are plenty more videos with higher view counts than those mentioned. The All Black haka+translation comes in at over 10 million.

I watched it and thought it was sacarine rubbish with an over earnest twat with big ears playing a journalist.

Perhaps we should put campbell and fat bastard dot com on a desert island so they can inteview each other.
