RANKING: Top 10 Sports Video Platforms Preferred by US Hispanics

Which sports video platforms do US Hispanic users prefer? What types of sports do they prefer? Do they prefer league sites o news media sites? Read on for the answers to these questions, drawn from comScore’s May 2017 ranking.

Although sports sites are making a major effort to generate video content and are increasingly including live broadcasts across their digital platforms, content consumption by U.S. Hispanics still remains low. Only 14.7% of all Hispanic netizens view sports video content. Just in the last month, we saw an almost 1% drop, for a total of 3.9 million users.

10    NFL Internet Group 298

Although Yahoo Sports ranked 7th on our list of sports sites most visited by Hispanics, it is doing even better in sports video content consumption, coming in 3rd in our ranking of Top 10 sports video platforms.

Spanish language soccer site Marca also makes its debut in our list this month, ranking 6th, with 501,000 unique users. What we don’t know is whether Hispanics are consuming videos in Spanish or English, since the site offers both options. In the overall rankings, Hispanics tend to choose to consume sports content in English.

In addition to the presence of sports news sites, there are two leagues that managed to attract sports video consumers directly to their official sites: the NFL and MLB. Coming in 4th is the MLB, with 558,000 unique users, while the NFL ranked 10th with 298,000 video consumers.
