    The same as streaming on a PC. Is what what you're asking?

    You know YouTube? That's a streaming video. Streaming off the internet means it is loading little bits off the internet and then playing them, rather than waiting for an entire video to completely load before playing.

    streaming simply means the video or other content is playing over the air instead of storing a file on your drive and then playing it from there
