TV Streaming

TV streaming has revolutionised the way many viewers watch TV. No longer are we tied to TV schedules or timing restrictions. Online services allow the viewer to watch programmes whenever it’s convenient for them, rather than when the broadcaster says so. This change in attitude has seen many people replace 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.  It downloads content only, whereas gaming downloads and uploads data from the gaming console so that you can play with/against other gamers across the world in real-time.
Examples of TV streaming content are:

Online gaming refers to any type of game that someone can play through the internet or over a computer network. Most of the time, it refers to video games played over the internet, where multiple players are in different locations across the world.  Download either free or purchase digital games online and instantly play with people real-time. Online gaming is growing in popularity for a variety of reasons.  Gamers can easily find opponents of a similar skill level when playing a head-to-head game over the internet.  Players also can compete in massively multiplayer games, where dozens of players play an ongoing game in a virtual world.  Often, participants can communicate with other gamers through text chat sessions during online gaming or, sometimes, players can actually speak to other players, using special audio hardware. You can even live stream your game through sites like TwitchTV.

Examples of gaming sites:

When you download a file, you transfer it from the internet to your computer.  The most commonly downloaded files are  programs, updates , or other kinds of files such as game demos, music and video files, or documents.  Downloading can also mean copying information from any source to a computer or other device, such as copying your favourite songs to a portable music player.
