Sager, head of music entertainment, Asia Pacific, claimed that Periscope users watch 40 years of content per day at the recent at panel held at South By Southwest. According to Sager, the service was downloaded one million times in the first ten days after its release, and its initial user base grew organically. “[The industry had] to embrace it because there’s not going to be any way to stop it,” Sager said. “Now artists are approaching us to develop Periscope campaigns before they go on tour.” Sager professed that music is “the number-one conversation driver” on the platform.
