When you stream a video or a multimedia clip, you watch it in real-time, instead of downloading it to your computer to watch later. When you stream a video, technically you are still downloading it, but the data is delivered to an in-browser plugin or an application for a one-watch-only purpose.

It’s a much faster way to watch content online because you can continue to watch the clip while the media is still being loaded.

You might have heard something recently about streaming services... In order to make good use of them, you will need a fast, strong Internet connection and enough data to allow you to stream TV series, movies and more.

Generally, streaming services are available on a month-to-month contract and will let you try the service out for free for the first month.

Some of the most popular streaming services are:

  • Netflix: $8.99 per month (starting price)
  • Presto: $14.99 per month
  • Stan: $10 per month
  • Quickflix: $9.99 per month


If you want to take your subscriptions service with you, you will need an Internet enabled device (and a phone plan that lets you stream without big end-of-the-month bills)! Most streaming platforms are supported by most newer mobile devices, but it’s always best to check before you sign up for a subscription or splash out on that new handset.

Supported mobile devices:

  • Phone 6
  • Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
