The 2017 Streaming Media 100: The 100 Companies That Matter Most in Online Video in 2017

Article Featured Image

As we approach the 20th anniversary of StreamingMedia.com, the world at large has finally caught on to what we’ve known all along: Online video is a revolutionary technology. Nary a week goes by without leading mainstream magazines and newspapers writing about OTT, YouTube, or even formerly esoteric subjects like video resolution and bandwidth usage.

But while streaming has gone mainstream, the companies that enable it are still largely behind the scenes, unknown to the people who use the technology every day. That’s no different from any industry, I suppose—I don’t know who supplied the gaskets in my car’s engine—but now more than ever, it’s our duty to give recognition to these companies, and that’s exactly what we do in our annual Streaming Media 100 List.

The Streaming Media 100 is our yearly effort to shine the spotlight on the companies that enable the creation and delivery of all of that amazing content. These are the companies that our editors and contributors have determined to be the cream of the crop—the most important, most innovative, and most influential companies providing streaming and OTT technologies, products, and services.

So how do we choose the Streaming Media 100? We start with a master list of all of the vendors in the online video space, then ask our editorial and publishing team to rank them on a scale of one (doesn’t belong on the final list at all) to five (no list of the most important companies would be complete without it). The top 100 make the list.

You’ll note that when a company is part of a larger company, we’ll typically list the parent company but note the subsidiary or subsidiaries we are honoring.

Also, the Streaming Media 100 focuses exclusively on companies with headquarters in North America. Later this year, we will publish a similar list, the Streaming Media Europe 101, focusing on companies with headquarters in Europe.

Congratulations to this year’s Streaming Media 100.
