Streaming media (a way of playing files as they download) is central to the information revolution. A decade or two ago, phone lines brought into your home were simply a way to talk to friends and family when meeting face-to-face was not possible. But in the 21st century, people have started to see telephone lines in a different way. Phone lines make it possible to view YouTube videos, television programs, news, and information in our homes 24 hours a day! Learn about different kinds of streaming, and how to view material without annoying interruptions.
