While lots of people have already got on the streaming wagon, there are still many people wondering what is video streaming and how will it benefit me?  Streaming itself has been around for a long time.  When you turn on your TV set, content is streamed there via a cable or satellite TV subscription through a set top media player connected to your TV set.

The term video streaming thrown around today refers to online subscription services like Netflix, Hulu, etc. where content is delivered via your internet connection instead of cable or satellite subscription.  The reason why it’s such a growing trend is that consumers have more choice as to what they view.  Other than pay per view on cable or satellite TV, choice is limited to what individual channels are serving up, with added flexibility of being able to record content on a DVR for later viewing.
