Be sure to tune in tonight at 6pm PST for a LIVE address from President Barack Obama on Air America’s Ustream show page. Only a week after Obama signed a stimulus bill of $787 billion and two days before Congress receives a summary of his 2010 budget, President Obama will be addressing the world regarding foreign policy, the deficit, and where he plans to take the nation.
Today proved to be historic not only for the inauguration of our 44th president, but also because it was an amazing day for Ustream!
It was the biggest day Ustream has seen since the Election on Nov. 4, surpassing our record of one million streams for one event. What’s more, Ustream had hundreds of separate inauguration-related streams. Our streams were conversational and niche, with hosted professional streams as well as user-generated broadcasts. We had our personal best today, so why not brag alittle?
- Ustream powered more than an estimated 3.8 million streams today
– 400,000 concurrent people were watching Inauguration events at any given moment during the speech and swearing in. - Tens of thousands watched live on the iPhone
Live event coverage from Downtown LA at the beautiful Mayan featuring a full live theatrical performance by The Mutaytor, and special guest performance by The Crystal Method, as well as DJ Motion Potion, DJ Wolfie.
