CoveritLive Weekly: Top five Social TV events (Dec. 30, 2013 – Jan. 5, 2014)

By Spencer Kitley

Canadian broadcaster TSN kicked off the New Year in a big way with their live coverage of the 2014 World Juniors Hockey Championship to post an impressive showing in the CoveritLive weekly Social TV rankings.

TSN’s live coverage of Team Canada’s matches throughout the 2014 World Juniors included a daily live chat that featured live social media content, photos, reader comments and polls. The real-time Second Screen experiences entertained more than 850,000 people during its five Team Canada events last week, including an audience of almost 250,000 viewers during the team’s semifinal loss to eventual champion Finland.

Two additional events topped the 200,000 mark as Team Canada played its way toward the final four round of the tourney.

*The CoveritLive blog releases its weekly social TV rankings every Monday. The data for the ranking system is exclusive to events that are tied to a television broadcast and the viewer metric is defined as a reader that actively clicks into a CiL event.
