There used to be only one way to watch television shows, and that was by watching TV.
so people would pay for as many channels as they could afford so that they’d have the best possible
selection of content to choose from.
Now there are streaming all over the internet, where you can sign up and – for a fee – watch pretty much anything you want.
There are streaming services for watching everything from sports to children’s shows to movies, so whatever you like to watch, you’ll be able to find a good selection of it.
How Streaming Services Works:
When you download a movie or a TV show, you store all the data that makes up that movie on your computer or on an external storage device.
People who watch a lot of movies can end up with a huge amount of storage space dedicated to entertainment, and that can get both expensive and hard to store.
When you stream that same movie or TV show, the data that makes up the movie is shown or played on the screen, and none of it is stored permanently on your computer.
Streaming services may cost a few dollars a month, but so does data storage, and streaming takes up far less space.
How to Access Streaming Services:
If you have a smart TV, you can choose from over 200 different streaming services offering every possible viewing choice there is.
You can also hook up a computer to a smart TV and stream through that, which will often give you more control over your shows.
Many telecom companies offer streaming services as part of your internet and TV package, so you can add them on at a slightly reduced price.
Most people choose to subscribe to a couple of streaming services so that they have a choice of programming, but it is certainly easy to end up subscribing to a huge number of them, because there is so much variety out there.
