Whether the viewer is streaming a Barney Miller episode on Crackle or the latest a season of Orange is the New Black from Netflix, their experience relies on the service provider transferring a steady, compressed stream of data to be received by their device. Much like a flow of water in a stream, picture the program data flowing from its source (e.g. Hulu or YouTube) to the end device — whether a TV, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.
Remember when Johnny 5 said he was top of the line because he had “500mb of memory”? Well today 500 mb of memory wouldn’t hold a days worth of selfies, let alone your favorite TV show. That’s where streaming comes in. Streaming just means you’re continuously pulling the TV show, movie, or video directly from the internet as you watch, saving valuable space on your phone or tablet. Just make sure you have a reliable WiFi connection, unless of course you have unlimited data, then stream away!
If the premise of streaming is the same — a signal transmitted from source to receiver which buffers the content for the user — what makes streaming different?
