Today proved to be historic not only for the inauguration of our 44th president, but also because it was an amazing day for Ustream!
It was the biggest day Ustream has seen since the Election on Nov. 4, surpassing our record of one million streams for one event. What’s more, Ustream had hundreds of separate inauguration-related streams. Our streams were conversational and niche, with hosted professional streams as well as user-generated broadcasts. We had our personal best today, so why not brag alittle?
– Ustream powered more than an estimated 3.8 million streams today
– 400,000 concurrent people were watching Inauguration events at any given moment during the speech and swearing in. – Tens of thousands watched live on the iPhone

NBC News and the Democratic National Committee excluded former Sen. Mike Gravel of Alaska on grounds that he did not meet fundraising and polling thresholds. Well that didn’t stop him from getting his message out live on Ustream.TV
Senator Mike Gravel in front of a full auditorium responded to each of the questions and answers from the Democratic candidates during the debate live at Drexel University. MSNBC wouldn’t cover the event, but Ustream did.
We continue to see the candidates from both sides of the aisle empowering themselves with live Ustream events.
Senator Gravel, if NBC won’t allow you to get your message, Ustream always will!
