What are the most popular sports websites among U.S. Hispanics? What impact did the months preparing for the Olympic Games have on theconsumption of sports content? The answers to these questions and more, according to comScore‘s June 2015 and June 2016 rankings.
As much as the amount of Hispanic users with Internet access increased,by 4% according to the table below, in June 2016 compared to June 2015, it is interesting to note how the general trend in the consumption of sports sites was negative. But one of the most important events of 2016 has been the Olympic Games, so maybe we will need to look at comScore’s August results to determine if this downward trend was reverted during the event.
