Commonwealth Games: Live Streaming; Site Stats

The Commonwealth Games being held in Delhi are being streamed live, both online and on mobile. - Smile of India, which we had earlier reportd as having non-exclusive mobile rights, and had launched the official apps for the games, is streaming the games live at their wap portal m.zoomi.in. There are no subscription charges, but GPRS charges will apply; I tried it yesterday found that it streaming didn't load for me using GPRS, but worked fine when I used a Wifi connection. The video quality is fine, and the feed being streamed is from Doordarshan. So you get a complete DD experience with it - including expert comments, and thousands of commercials; it's not a clean feed. Not quite sure how Smile of India is monetizing these rights, though. - Indiatimes appears to have online streaming rights. They're streaming the games at live.indiatimes.com, and have advertising before the stream loads. No advertising on site, though. Indiatimes has incorporated SpeedNews and Twitter updates with the page. No facebook updates? What's notable is that both are streaming feeds from Doordarshan. In case of Zoomi, I noticed that they're even showing the doordarshan ads. Meanwhile, Hungama Digital Media, which apparently has done the official website of the commonwealth games, has sent a note across with some stats: between the 3rd and 5th of October, the website had over 4.2 million unique visitors, with over 30 million page views.
