What are online streaming services?

Online streaming services are platforms that let you stream media like videos, music, or video games. You can choose to watch content that others have uploaded onto platforms, like Disney Plus, Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, and more. You can also stream your own content on platforms like YouTube and Twitch, even gaming live for others to watch.

What is the best internet speed for streaming?

The ideal internet speed for streaming will vary depending on several factors, one of which is the number of devices, including smart TVs, computers/laptops, tablets, smartphones, streaming media players, and gaming consoles, used for streaming on the same network. The more devices you have streaming, the more bandwidth you’ll need.

You’ll also need to consider the type and quality of content you stream: standard definition (SD), high definition (HD), and 4K. The table below shows the minimum internet speed in megabits per second (Mbps) that you’ll want per device for streaming various platforms and media types.


Keep in mind, these estimates are for the minimum speed needed, so often a faster speed will provide an even better experience.

How to choose the best internet for streaming
