Here at Ustream, we take pride in having the best streaming experience from mobile devices. Whether you’re capturing your child’s soccer game or breaking news, we make sure your special moments can be shared with friends and family across the globe.
That’s why we’re excited today to announce that we’ve collaborated with Verizon Wireless, America’s Largest and Most Reliable Wireless Network, to bring new features to our Android users. Verizon Wireless subscribers with participating Android devices will get their own Verizon channel with some great new features:
At Ustream, we’re laser-focused on providing the best experience for our users. Mobile broadcasters are increasingly growing by the numbers, and today, we’ve released a major update to the Android user app.
What’s new for the global users?
- Users can now manage their own recorded videos (edit title, edit description, edit privacy, play, delete, share)
- They can also title their broadcasts (as long as the channel is live)
- Additionally — and most notably — users can broadcast in “high quality” (640×360, active by default) and “HD” (1280×720) on enabled devices
You may have noticed that we’ve also just partnered with Verizon Wireless

Seven years ago, we started this company with a simple idea: a mission to bring live broadcasting to anyone in the world. Over the years, we’ve seen users from all walks of life taking to our technology, largely because of the power of live, social video. I can proudly say that we have fulfilled this mission; in fact, we had our best year as a company in 2013 and we’re excited for the road ahead.
We have now embraced a much larger mission.

What the heck is a “pip”? And is there really such a thing as a “pip-squeak”? You’d know if you were a regular viewer of Alessondra’s Great Horned Owl Cam. We’re having a ball, or an egg (3 of them this year), in our third year live-streaming on Ustream. Alessondra is our 8 year old homeschooled daughter who discovered a family of Great Horned Owls who regularly perched on her bedroom window planter box. As homeschooling parents who try to leverage every life experience as a learning opportunity, we set up the cam so that Alessondra could have a bird’s eye view of the process from another computer downstairs, and Ustream made this possible.
Activity in Ukriane has continued to heighten, and we’re seeing many people turning to Ustream — broadcasters have taken to their cameras and mobile devices to show the world what’s taking place, while thousands of viewers are given the inside look.
