Who we are.

We’re in the business of ‘content creation’ and have been since long before the word ‘content’ was the buzz word that it has become today.

Meet the Stream Team

Through trial and error and endless innovation, we’ve developed and perfected a system to get the job done to a level previously only seen on traditional broadcast television.

While there’s nothing ‘new’ about livestreaming, it’s how we do it that’s different – we provide a premium, broadcast quality viewing experience for you, your community and most importantly your sponsors and partners.

The Stream Team

Daniel Wrightson

You’ll most likely recognise Daniel from his voice, having been the corporate voice for brands like Newstalk ZB, Sky Sport and many others for over 20 years. His ‘real’ job though is telling stories – whether it’s directing livestream broadcast coverage or creating personalised content, Daniel’s passion is connecting and engaging with an audience. He’s a dab hand at the guitar, and enjoys the occasional glass of rosé.
