In 2000, StreamGuys began; two guys, a laptop, two cats and a fig tree. We came to answer the call; broadcasters needed help finding quality and affordable streaming providers.
In steps StreamGuys; we set out to build the best streaming company possible. We knew that as in any service industry customer support would be a pillar of our company. So we staffed StreamGuys with the friendliest and most professional people possible, experienced leaders with a vision for the future.
We knew that our broadcasters needed to make a profit from their streaming media. So we offered services that broadcasters could afford, and more importantly, generate revenue from. We knew that quality of service is all important in a 24/7 industry, so we built a better streaming network by working with the best people and companies in the industry.
Affordable, Reliable, Scalable became our mantra; a rallying cry we chant loudly.
In 2004, StreamGuys achieved a milestone and was ranked as the #2 CDN, as rated by Arbitron. Today, we welcome you to join the StreamGuys community and begin a lasting relationship with a streaming provider that will take care of your company.
StreamGuys are friendly and expert professionals here to help your business succeed. We exist to provide you with the experience, tools, and resources to successfully plan, promote, and deliver successful IP media for large and small businesses.

The transition to StreamGuys quickly solved the problems we faced with buffering issues and signal drops across a variety of mobile devices. Additionally, the design of their media player is appealing to listeners and advertisers alike, and offers exceptional value and reliability at a very affordable price point. StreamGuys has been very responsive and proactive in making sure our requirements are exceeded.
StreamGuys' willingness to take us on when we were a fledging organization with tiny streaming needs allowed us to get started and grow into an online archive nearly 3,000 items strong.
StreamGuys has proven a reliable partner that has been key to our success. We like to focus our efforts on programming, as well as generating the necessary funding we need to operate our station to its highest potential. We are happy we have the experts at StreamGuys to help us manage the distribution of our online channels.
I have always thought of StreamGuys as more of a partner than just another company I work with. They provide outstanding customer service and a willingness to find solutions to obstacles. StreamGuys has also offered flexible, affordable services to meet my changing bandwidth needs over the years, and they have been receptive and responsive to my requests regarding capabilities of the HTML5 player.
The difference with StreamGuys is that they are not forcing us into one business model for streaming services. They instead provide us with the streaming services that are right for our model, and deliver the ongoing recommendations, support and troubleshooting we need. That helps us keep costs low and leaves us to focus on program content and customer relationships — which is what we do best.
We have a strong sense of place and love the music we play. We’re passionate about sharing this with the rest of the world, and StreamGuys helped us increase online listenership with the reliability of its global infrastructure.
Our online audience has increased more than tenfold since migrating to the StreamGuys platform. StreamGuys remains flexible in pricing, building new and economical streaming packages when applicable to meet our evolving needs.
We wanted the Monterey Jazz Festival stream to resemble a TV special with a professional, multi-camera shoot. We had the venue, the performers, the production team and the media partners, but no one to deliver it to the world. It was important for us to partner with a company like StreamGuys that had the experience.
Working with a streaming media provider/CDN has enhanced our ability to produce a high-quality live video stream. They are always available for testing prior to events, and also assist us when streaming live events from remote locations like the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Princeton University and the Borough of Manhattan Community College among other sites. It has made for an ideal partnership between broadcaster, video producer and streaming media provider.
StreamGuys built a plan that brings multiple elements at a very affordable price, including my website, archive storage and access, live video streaming bandwidth and administrative aspects.
