Company History

EarthChannel Communications, Inc. (ECC), an employee-owned, debt-free Georgia corporation, was founded in 1995 with a primary goal of facilitating the process of streaming. ECC helped pioneer digital media on the Internet in the ’90s and began providing streaming media services to municipalities in 1998 in an effort to help foster open government.

Our GTV programs, available to PEGs only, are specifically designed to provide a practical means for sharing local information in an increasingly challenging media environment. Through advanced automation techniques and the economy of scale, we have been able to reduce the cost of our GTV programs by over 80% in the last 11-years. Such economy now makes it possible for even small communities to benefit from our advanced features and high quality streaming.

Today, ECC's server farm is connected to the Internet via multiple "big pipes" for uncompromised scalability. Any of our clients can instantly burst up to over 6000 viewers. With a focus on advanced technology and excellent customer service, EarthChannel has grown to be one of the oldest and most successful privately-owned streaming organizations in the industry.
