The Limelight OrchestrateTM Video Platform Streams More Than 1,000 Online Video Programs to Inquisitive Subscribers Worldwide

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:LLNW) is now making it easier for the curious to satisfy their immediate desire to view a vast library of streaming content on a myriad of topics. Limelight, a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced its technology platform is managing and streaming content for CuriosityStream, the first streaming service for the world's nonfiction content that can be viewed on any device worldwide.

“We built a new OTT service from the ground up, so we turned to Limelight as a single solution to manage, secure and deliver our videos so we could focus our resources on building our streaming business,” said Peter North, chief digital officer for CuriosityStream. “Our customers expect us to support a variety of devices such as Roku and Apple TV, native smart TV applications, tablets and smartphones. Limelight enables us to deliver video in the ideal format to each of these competing but inherently different streaming platforms.”

At the formation of CuriosityStream, the company sought a comprehensive solution to address its video workflow and content delivery needs on a global scale. They selected the Limelight Orchestrate Video Platform, a suite of cloud-based video delivery and management software. Orchestrate provides an instant global footprint, scalability that can handle peak loads and consistent delivery in broadcast quality regardless of device or geography.

“CuriosityStream viewers often watch its curated content on science, technology and significant historical events on multiple devices. There is a high probability that some viewers may even start watching on one device and finish on another,” said Kevin Odden, group vice president of sales at Limelight. “Limelight consistently delivers the high quality experience they expect on any video capable device worldwide.”

Additional details on how Limelight is helping CuriosityStream stream more than 1,000 videos on-demand are available in a case study here.
