This is the October 2014 newsletter for broadcasting and streaming with DaCast. Topics on newsletters will vary, although new features and offers are mainstays. This particular newsletter gives voice to our new, ultra thing player. Previously in beta, announced in our August 2014 newsletter, the new player is now available for all accounts. Normally a blog entry would be entered into the newsletter as well. However, this particular newsletter is heavy due to DaCast getting awarded in the top 100 and nominated for the Reader’s Choice Awards as well.
