List of streaming media services

An over-the-top media service is a streaming media service offered directly to viewers via the Internet. OTT bypasses cable, broadcast, and satellite television platforms, the companies that traditionally act as a controller or distributor of such content. Most of these services are owned by a major film studio. Some streaming services started as an add-on to Blu-ray offerings, which are supplements to the programs watched.[1]

Streaming is an alternative to file downloading, a process in which the end-user obtains the entire file(s) for the content before watching or listening to it.

A client end-user can use their media player, computer, mobile phone and smart TV to start playing digital video content before the entire file has been transmitted. Users will need an Internet connection to stream or download video contents. Users lacking compatible hardware or software systems may be unable to stream or download certain content.
