Tim Wilson once started a thread about digital delivery (it's here).

What Tim said there was:

Who's using digital delivery? For what? To whom?

Who have you used? What'd you think?

It's now been over a year since that thread was started. Wondering if the Cow community thinks the landscape has changed since then.

What vendors do people use for digital delivery? Or do they use homebrew solutions? What is it costing people to send SD and HD spots?

The number of vendors has definitely exploded. Used to be just DG. Then DG and ExtremeReach. Now I easily get to over a dozen.

1) DG (formerly DG Fastchannel) for short form / Pathfire for long form syndicated
2) Extreme Reach
3) Hula Media Exhange
4) SpotGenie
5) Yangaroo / Horizon Media
6) PitchBlue (for long-form syndicated content, not spots)
7) EZ-Spot (from On The Spot Networks)
8) Adstream
9) YouSendIt
10) Digital Rapids
11) RapidTransmit
12) Spot Traffic
13) Centaur Storage
14) Signiant

That kind of explosion in service providers has got to lead to lower prices and (hopefully) better service options. Is that what folks are seeing?

HI James,

I work for On The Spot Media...EZSpot

I can say from my experience and from how our company is growing that we are offering lower prices in digital delivery than some of the vendors listing towards the top of your list and one of the areas we excel at is customer service. Word of mouth directly from stations has been very positive. Our staff is exceptional and we are in constant contact with clients and TV stations. We pride ourselves on providing superior Customer service as well as quick turnarounds for delivery jobs (and of course QC).

Thanks for mentioning us on your post :)

Please let me know if we can be of any assistance

Jason Agoglia
QC Manager

I'd like to know if anyone has recent experience with these services as well. Can anyone comment on the cost vs. range of services provided? At a glance it seems like some companies, like DG, over a much wider range of services than spot delivery alone.
