At National Online Safety, we provide multi-award-winning online safety education for the whole school community. It’s our mission to make the internet a safer place for children. We believe that when children go online to learn, communicate or play, they should be able to do so safely. That’s why we provide schools all over the world with the knowledge they need in order to tackle new and evolving online risks.
Video Streaming Apps
Part of our Social Media & Live Streaming Series 2020-21
What is a video streaming app or site?
Video streaming apps and sites allow people to share activities and hobbies with others in real time or watch their favourite films and TV shows online.
There are different types of video streaming services. Twitch, for example, is used for watching others play video games in real time.
Movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime or Apple TV can be watched with friends and family.
Video streaming has gained popularity in the last few years because there is a sense of community when watching with others and people can comment on videos and ask questions in real time.
