Although most of us can't even remember it now, there was a time where one had to be in front of a TV to watch a sporting event, live concert, political event or even a full TV program. And, just 10 years ago, if you moved out of a town you would never get to hear your favorite radio broadcast ever again. This was only several years ago, but it feels like a lifetime ago.

Streaming internet has changed the way we watch the world around us. Here are a few illustrations of how these advancements have changed how we live our life:

While it still might not be replacing watching it on live, or as some people have come to prefer, on DVR, full length TV episodes have begun to catch on online. Social-Media web sites have partnered with specific networks and television shows to show new (and old) episodes within their entirety to viewers. Internet and network specific advertisements are included in these shows so networks will be able to get their advertising revenue even online. Compared to radio and live news events, full TV shows are a relatively new technology to hit the internet so it shall be interesting to view where this it goes in the next few years.

Radio stations were one of the big winners of high speed internet since they are now able to broadcast anywhere in the world. Thousands of stations now transmit around the globe so people looking to hear talk radio from Boise, ID can hear it in Paris, France, or those wanting to hear a rock station from Iceland can hear it in Vancouver, Canada. It used to be that among the hardships of moving out of the city you grew up in was not getting to hear your favorite radio stations any more. Now all you will need is definitely an internet access and you may hear it anywhere on this planet.

About ten years ago someone came up with the brilliant idea of having pay-per-view packages in which you could watch every pro football or college football game from your TV regardless of where you live. Fundamentally, this popular endeavor has been expanded to the web where, for a price, you can watch just about any sporting event live on your computer. It's the exact same idea as with the web radio: irrespective of where you are, regardless of what your team you root for, you may see them on your computer. Any sports fan will tell you this really is an extremely welcome idea.

One of the first realms to benefit from the live streaming video revolution is news. News networks first began putting video reports out for the viewers to watch online, and after that gradually began to stream live events and news reports on their sites. This both benefited and bemused politicians as now their best, and worst, moments are available for the world to find out at the push of a button. Sound bites have now given way to full speeches and round the clock coverage which shall be available to potential voters around the globe. To put it in literary themes, for politicians it really is the very best of times and the worst of times with live streaming basketball video.
