What is streaming?

Streaming is simply watching video content (i.e. TV programming) online through an Internet connection. With a streaming service you can enjoy your favourite TV show, movies, or sporting event (such as NHL Centre Ice) so long as you have an Internet connection and a subscription to the specific streaming channel/service.

Technically “streaming” refers to the transmission of audio and video over the Internet through compressed data. To stream content, you require a streaming device (such as a streaming box) which acts as a “streaming player” to uncompress the data and deliver the content through video (i.e. your TV or display) and audio to speakers.

Content is usually streamed through your Smart TV, but you can also stream through other devices such as your laptop, your mobile phone, your tablet or your desktop computer.

Ignite Streaming (formerly known as Shaw Stream) is a video streaming device that can be used with your Shaw Internet service to view programs online, anytime with your Internet service.
