Television and the Internet are slowly merging, to the point where a user only needs a computer and an Internet connection to enjoy a wide variety of entertainment and news media. Streaming media has long been a part of the Internet from its inception in the 1990s. Streaming media allows video and audio data to be broadcasted in real-time across multiple networks to many end-users at once. This format has allowed online forms of media to begin supplanting traditional forms. Businesses have begun to take notice and change their plans accordingly.
