Chilean TV everywhere and video on-demand (VOD) platforms provider Mediastream has recorded four million monthly sports users in Latin America.

The company told NexTV Latam that services from Win Sports Online in Colombia, Estadio CDF in Chile and Poipes in Uruguay have pushed the subscriber totals up. Using its CDN in Chile and technology from Elemental Technologies, it has made a particular push into the sports area.

“Sports win by far,” said Mediastream’s director, Luis Ahumada. “We’ve had soccer matches which have exceeded the 100,000 simultaneous users.”

Last year represented a 500% increase in traffic. “This kind of platform already generates interesting revenues; the important thing is to have high-value content,” said Ahumada.

Mediastream also provides the paid TV everywhere platform of Chilean Canal 13’s international channel, and the websites of Chilean channels Mega and TVN.
