The biggest share of RT’s online audience came from the USA where 9.1 million people (19%) accessed RT’s content via website, mobile apps and YouTube channel in November 2015.

RT also remains the top non-Anglo-Saxon international television news station in terms of online desktop audience, ahead of Al Jazeera, Deutsche Welle, Voice of America, Euronews, France 24 and Japan's NHK. comScore also found that RT's Spanish website was ahead of the Spanish versions of CNN and Deutsche Welle, while RT's Arabic website, was ahead of the rivals such as Sky News, Deutsche Welle, BBC and CNN.
