TV Streaming

TV streaming has revolutionised the way many viewers watch TV.
Online services allow the viewer to watch programmes whenever it’s convenient for them, rather than when the broadcaster says so.
People have replaced traditional TV habits with web streaming and catch-up services like SkyGo, NEON and Netflix .
All these services can be broadcast to your TV via a streaming device. These services stream content from the provider through your modem.

Examples of TV streaming content are:

  • Netflix
  • NEON
