BOSTON — NESN.com, the most-visited Regional Sports Network (RSN) website in the country, set a new record in June by attracting 1,007,500 monthly unique visitors in U.S. traffic, according to comScore statistics released mid-month. Year over year, the sports news site has seen a 104 percent increase in unique visitors and an incredible 456 percent increase in total page views, with 16.1 million total page views in June.
NESN.com's consistent growth over the past year can be attributed in part to the success of the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins and first place Boston Red Sox. This success has also translated into NESN setting television ratings records for Bruins coverage during the regular season and the playoffs. In addition, NESN's 2011 Red Sox average household ratings have increased over 20 percent year-to-date compared to last season. NESN.com is also benefiting from recent partnerships with FoxSports.com, Yardbarker.com and LiverpoolFC.tv.
NESN has consistently been one of the top rated regional sports networks in the country with award-winning Red Sox and Bruins coverage. The network is delivered to over 4 million homes throughout the six-state New England region and an additional 3.7 million homes nationally as NESN National. NESN.com is the most visited regional sports network website in the country (comScore, June 2011). NESN also produces a number of distinctive programs under its umbrella Original NESN Entertainment (ONE). NESN is owned by Fenway Sports Group (owners of the Boston Red Sox) and the Boston Bruins.
