Video-sharing platform Rumble smashed its live streaming record by more than 3x on Saturday with 500,000 concurrent live viewers across its apps, website, and over-the-top (OTT).
The majority of these viewers were on Right Side Broadcasting Network’s (RSBN’s) live stream of President Trump’s rally in Sarasota, Florida. RSBN was temporarily banned from live streaming to YouTube hours before the rally started and so streamed via its own app and Rumble.
And as the Trump rally started, Rumble and RSBN quickly started to break the platform’s previous live streaming records of 150,000 concurrent live stream viewers and 100,000 concurrent live stream viewers on a single creator account.
During the rally, RSBN eased past both the platform and single creator account records and peaked at over 400,000 concurrent live viewers.
Rumble reported that the platform as a whole reached over 500,000 concurrent live viewers.
Not only did Rumble and RSBN blast past the previous records but it took just one week to set these new records.
The record-setting live viewer figures are the latest development in what has been an impressive 2021 for the video-sharing platform.
Last week, President Trump joined Rumble after being banned from all of the Big Tech platforms. Rumble is the first alternative social media platform that Trump has joined and his videos have already been watched over a million times. His account’s live stream of the rally in Sarasota, Florida has over 355,000 total views.
Trump is one of several high-profile figures to join the platform with other Rumble creators including Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization Donald Trump Jr., conservative commentator Dan Bongino, Senator Ron Johnson, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
In addition to attracting top-tier creators to the platform this year, Rumble has also secured investment from Peter Thiel and JD Vance, fleshed out its live streaming product with live chat and live stream archiving, and had a record first quarter.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
