Two Billion

By Brad

That’s how many people the British government predicts will tune in to the April 29 Royal Wedding. At GigaOm, Liz Shannon Miller examines what such a major influx of users could mean:

In 1981, Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding was watched by 750 million people on television in 74 countries (the most viewed wedding of all time, according to Guinness World Records), and this ceremony could beat that record. British Cultural Secretary Jeremy Hunt is reported as saying he anticipates two billion people watching. And most of that viewing may be done online — a storm of streaming that could bring down networks and sites around the world.
