Jet-Stream, the leading European streaming services provider, proudly announces its continued partnership to livestream the Eurovision Song Contest for the next three years. In collaboration with Let’s Get Digital (another Groningen-based company) providing the portal infrastructure, Jet-Stream will deliver high-quality and secure streams for the iconic music event.

Since COVID-19, live streaming has become indispensable for Eurovision. In 2021 and 2022, Eurovision selected Jet-Stream Cloud for meeting its strict technical requirements. When the 2023 contest was held in the UK, the country chose another vendor that could not achieve high standards set by Jet-Stream. As a result, Eurovision will continue using Jet-Stream Cloud for future events.

“We’re absolutely delighted to extend our collaboration with Jet-Stream for the Eurovision Song Contest. Their commitment to meeting rigorous standards for reliability, quality, and security is truly outstanding. With Jet-Stream on board, we’re confident in providing Eurovision fans worldwide with an unforgettable experience.” – Bas Krijgsman, founder of Let’s Get Digital.
