The Spanish company Mediapro announced it came to terms with YouTube to broadcast the Lima 2019 Pan American Games live and for the first time on the video platform, not including Turkey and the American continent. The companies did not give details on the agreement’s economic terms, which was possible thanks to the Peruvian Olympic Committee.
First statistics of the experience shows that Pan American Games contents recorded more than 200 thousand impressions and 400 thousand viewing minutes since the event began. ‘Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom, Japan and Australia were the countries with more visualizations’, Mediapro explained.
