Major news networks have broadcast tonight the 2008 US Presidential Election with Mogulus. Established publications, TV Networks, and other top news sources have provided viewers with premium election coverage, some for more than 10 hours today.
This has been a historic event, and a premiere for many news institutions which have recently integrated online broadcasting to their editorial/coverage strategy. Mogulus has reached unprecedented diversity of broadcasts covering the same event, with an simultaneous audience peaking at 87,178, and we’re proud to have been the first choice for these professional journalists and reporters.
Here are some screenshots from a few of our channels.
CSPAN, WUSA9, USA TODAY, KARE 11, NECN and Hawaian TV network KGMB9 used Mogulus to broadcast their official live stream of the Vice President debate on their web site. Some retransmitted the official feed while others such as CSPAN had behind the scene cameras broadcasting from the debate press room.
Here are some screenshots of their coverage using the Mogulus player :

Several Gannett properties are covering the Hurricanes with Mogulus. We decided therefore to create a special grid, with 6 live channels, that could be embeded anywhere and would give the most complete coverage possible to viewers.

Over the weekend, Beet TV has already commented this live grid.
