What is Streaming Media?

The content is delivered in packets that contain only a small portion of the file. Each packet is then processed by the client device as a video or audio files and displayed. The file is deleted when the user has finished their streaming session.

Streaming services also allow access to content on demand, meaning viewers can watch any time they want. These streaming services are also known as video on demand services. They often have large libraries of content. This kind of content is particularly beneficial for binge-watching, which allows viewers to watch multiple episodes of a series or movie without the need to record them. On-demand services also allow users to download titles in advance, which is useful if they only have a Wi Fi connection.

Both streaming services provide older movies and a small selection of newer releases. Netflix also has a DVD rental service which allows you to access all new releases within a month of their availability on the streaming platform.
