This May, US Comscore All Devices Viewership report saw SendtoNews reach record highs in Videos Viewed, surpassing the one billion mark.
SendtoNews publishers delivered content to over 47,444,000 unique viewers, totaling 1,041,295,000 video views across the United States for May 2020.

SendtoNews saw 120% growth in video viewership from May 2019. This was thanks in part to initiatives like STN’s “Reliving Sports” smart video player, which gave publishers an easy way to deliver official sports content from leagues like MLB, NBA, NFL, PGA Tour and more to their users during a lull in regular season play.
