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.
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).
