There were 309 million TV and radio requests for programmes on BBC iPlayer and BBC iPlayer Radio in December.
Overall there was a slight decrease in requests from computers, while the other devices saw increases compared to November. Most notable is the increase in TV platform operators and connected TV devices, as big screen viewing proved popular over the festive period.
The Apprentice was by far the most popular series in December, with Episode nine the top-performing episode, and overall making up four out of the top five programmes. Episode one in the new series of Luther also featured this month along with brand new series And The There Were None and Christmas Special episodes of EastEnders and Mrs Brown’s Boys.
