Abstract: We have the unique opportunity to observe and model nearby streams around the two large Local Group spirals, the Milky Way and M31, in great detail. However, the detection of streams around other external galaxies is required to verify the general application of the derived results. We give a short summary of streams around other galaxies known in the literature, measuring for the first time the surface brightness of Malin's M83 stream with modern CCD imaging. In addition, we present four new detections of possible stellar streams around disk galaxies.
