So what exactly is streaming? …and why stream?
Streaming is watching TV through the Internet — a growing trend that could very well be the future of all TV.
The advantage of streaming is you can pause, save, resume, and skip when viewing. You can even binge watch an entire TV series at one sitting. You have almost unlimited options from TV shows, Movies, Music, and more — at any time.
Most streaming is provided through subscriptions with companies like Netflix, Disney, ESPN, and others. They offer ever increasing selections, and some allow you to “rent” the newest movie releases.
To stream you need fast, reliable Internet service and either a newer “smart” TV or an external device like a Roku Box, or Apple TV device. Most gaming platforms, like Microsoft’s X-box provide streaming capabilities.
