BoxCast CEO & Co-Founder Gordon Daily and Sunday Streams Co-Founder Grant Winker welcome Sunday Streams customers and employees to the BoxCast community.
How does this affect me? Do I need to do something?
In order to continue streaming service, you will need to transition your account over to BoxCast. Please note: Your account will not set up automatically. When your Sunday Streams account is ready for transition, a notice will appear in your Sunday Streams Manager. You must follow all 5 steps of the process to ensure a successful transition.
When can I transition my Sunday Streams account to BoxCast?
Transitions started in late October 2019. When your Sunday Streams account is ready for transition, a notice will appear in your Sunday Streams Manager. We hope to have all Sunday Streams customers transitioned before Easter 2020.
Once I transition my account to BoxCast, will my Sunday Streams account still exist?
No. However, all of your archived videos will be imported into the BoxCast platform during the transition process. Once you complete transition to BoxCast, you will use the BoxCast Dashboard for all of your live streaming needs.
Can I still stream this week?
Yes. You can continue using Sunday Streams until you complete your transition to BoxCast. If you need Sunday Streams Manager technical support, you can still call 855.278.7326 or submit a support ticket.
Does BoxCast have the same features as Sunday Streams?
BoxCast has many excellent features to offer. Most of the functionality in the Sunday Streams Manager will be supported, however, not all features will be transitioned or available in the same exact way. We encourage you to reach out to your Client Manager to discuss how we can accommodate your individual needs. Furthermore, we encourage you to start a free trial and try out BoxCast for yourself.

Will I still pay Sunday Streams for my subscription or will I pay BoxCast?

I just made a payment to my Sunday Streams subscription, will that go towards my BoxCast subscription?
Yes. Once you transition to BoxCast, you will be credited the unused amount of any payments made during that period.
