A little history.

Can you imagine life without live streaming? That we spend 4 hours a day watching videos, television and listening to radio online? We dreamt of it but certainly didn’t expect to be delivering billions of streams globally, for the highest demanding professional customers.

Let’s take you back to 1994. Three men were sitting at a bar, they got a crazy idea: produce a live stream. And so, they did. On November 4, 1994 they produced the world’s first live stream ever.

In 1996 their live streams became so popular that they broke down the internet (sorry again!). So, in 1997 they decided to build the world’s first streaming CDN. Six years later, in 2003, Jet-Stream was founded with the mission to scale and professionalize the web for streaming.
