Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed about the idea of getting into a new technology like streaming? Many people are interested in watching movies or TV shows on their PC or Mac, or stream to their TV set via gaming console, blu-ray player or media player, but they feel they don't have the technical ability to pull it off.
If you don't have a techie person you can turn to, why not turn to this easy checklist? The reality is that it isn't as difficult as you think to start watching online films immediately!
Before we begin a checklist, let's define the technologies. In a nutshell,content that is streamed remains on a remote service that you access while you are actively online. In other words, whatever device you use requires the ability to be connected to the internet. The streamed video is delivered to your device, and it is played by a piece of software called a media player.
When you download video, it also requires an internet connection. However, once the content is downloaded to your device, you can view it anytime you wish without being connected to the internet.
Both technologies use up data, but a high definition stream will use considerably more data than standard definition or downloading will.
