That's not true at all. I can tell you as a former volunteer CPL admin from 2001-2005 that CS matches never really broke the 35-45 CONCURRENT viewer mark.

Championship Gaming Series matches may have achieved higher numbers via Direct TV, but those were never released.

To address some other comments, these are NA stream numbers for an online tournaments. Certainly there are some Asia tournaments with larger concurrency, especially in Korea.

69k is a very impressive number, pretty happy to see esports growing!

But it is definitely not a new record. Last Sc2 TSL had about 75k concurrent viewers and i'm pretty sure GSL has more than 69k too, but they rarely release any numbers.

Too bad the amount of viewers doesnt stand in direct relation to the quality of the game :s

I know! I was trying to find recordings on youtube but I couldn't find any except the 2010 championships and qualifiers...
