Great service & videos working well!!

As a start up business I was looking for a streaming service that would play my videos seamlessly. As a lot is resting on it working properly, it was imperative that the company I chose were not only responsive but also effective. Thankfully, Hoststreamsell did not disappoint. I know I can rely on the videos working and that if I need any help I will get a speedy response. Really pleased and looking forward to the next phase where I will have a much larger subscription base. Would highly recommend this company…!!

Easy as I could possibly expect

In addition to the WooCommerce extension by the same developer, we needed a members only video viewing area on our sites and this made the implementation much easier than expected.

Drop in a simple shortcode, include the video ID, and VOILA.

Very much recommended.
