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.
