CNN may be struggling in the ratings against its cable news competition, but the network is on a winning streak in digital video.
In just released numbers for July 2015, CNN says its CNN.com site “cemented its position as the number one digital destination for news video,” extending its winning streak to a third consecutive month. The announcement cites figures from comScore Video Metrix.
CNN took the top spot in video streams, viewers and minutes during July.
“With 194 million video streams, 19 million unique viewers and 1.3 billion minutes of video consumed for the month, CNN easily secured wins across the board and beat out Yahoo News, Buzzfeed and all competitors in the news and information category,” the company announced.
By comparison, FoxNews.com, the website of the cable news channel that has been dominating CNN in ratings for the linear channels, was well behind CNN.com in all three categories, with 81 million streams, 8 million unique viewers and 633 million minutes of video consumed.
In fact, FoxNews.com trails several of CNN.com’s other digital video competitors, with Yahoo News putting up the toughest fight against CNN in a number of categories in July.
