“I started in March of 2008 and live streaming at that time was more or less “life casting.” Leo Laporte at the time was the only one really doing “structured shows.” That didn’t happen at least for me until 2011. Back then you didn’t have a lot of CDN choices. Justin.tv and Ustream.tv were the 2 main. There was a “Stickam” which eventually went out of business. ” – Stephen Heyward.
Now you can find all types of CDN’s that cater to different types of content. That was few and far between years ago.
