"Quality is very important to our viewers, we care a lot about the content that we produce and how it's presented. There are many challenges to getting higher quality content to our viewers. The part that we probably feel best about is the piece that Akamai provides: our ability to get the bits out."

Nick Rockwell , EVP & CTO , MTV Networks Global Digital Media

MTV Networks was faced with the challenge of extending their brands to the Internet in order to reach their audience on web and mobile devices. Recognizing that their demographic is completely online, MTV knew they needed to lay the foundation for how they were going to connect with their online audience now and in the future.

Scaling was very challenging in the early days, in terms of being a broadcast company with a big incumbent audience and trying to take that audience to the Internet. MTV realized quite quickly that they needed Akamai to address the scalability problems they were having and were very eager to begin their partnership.

Getting behind Akamai’s infrastructure was a magic bullet for MTV. Once on the platform, they began to leverage even more of Akamai’s capabilities over the years and have now come to rely on Akamai as a strategic partner.
