Super Bowl 50 was the most-streamed Super Bowl game ever, but it didn't break the NFL's own livestreaming record.

As it announced this year's Super Bowl audience—111.9 million, the third highest in Super Bowl history—CBS said its livestream of Sunday's game averaged 1.4 million viewers per minute.

That represents a Super Bowl record for livestreaming. The 2015 game averaged 800,000 per minute for NBC. Fox's stream averaged 528,000 viewers in 2014, while CBS had 508,000 in 2013.
