JW Player announced yesterday that it has added Univision as a new enterprise customer in the first quarter, a significant win for the company. JW Player’s platform is being used in part to support Univision’s streaming of the high-profile Copa America Centenario matches this month, including on its mobile apps.
JW Player also said it added lifestyle content provider LittleThings in Q1, bringing total enterprise customers to nearly 600. JW also serves over 2 million global publishers across in verticals including news, entertainment, gaming, sports, education and others in over 193 countries. Combined, these properties drive over 1 billion unique monthly viewers.
JW Player also said that its technology is now used to power over 1 billion hours of video per month, up 250% vs. last year. Mobile now accounts for more traffic than desktop across the JW Player network.
