Streaming Media

Streaming media is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider.

Distinguishing delivery method from the media distributed applies specifically to telecommunications networks, as most other delivery systems are either inherently streaming (e.g., radio, television) or inherently nonstreaming (e.g., books, video cassettes, audio CDs).
