Streaming Television Online – The Drawbacks

Streaming Television Online – The Drawbacks

Okay, some things may be too good to be true. Streaming television online does have its setbacks. But just like anything else that’s pretty new in regards to technology, it will go through some streamlining itself before it can be perfect.

I do want to clear up that I am an avid streaming television fan, but because I give unbiased information (the good and the bad) I feel I have to mention this side as well. Here are just some of the things I found that could be better.

The Quality of the Streaming

The first thing that you will notice, especially when it comes to the free online streaming, is the quality. The downloads are better quality viewing, however, sometimes it can take a century for it to download and once you download—just like with anything else that goes across the network to your own personal computer, you should be concerned that you have opened up the door for viruses. Sometimes the video playback with certain services are not smooth and sometimes cuts in and out. I’ve found several instances where my favorite show just stops. Much of this has to do with so many people online doing the same thing. The traffic can cause very poor performance, which can be very frustrating when you are in the middle of viewing a program.

The Choice

Sometimes too much variety can be a downfall, as now you have to pick and choose amongst some legal services and some services that are not legal and are literally scams. Some streaming television online takes material that has copyright protection and places it online without anyone’s permission. And many times—especially online, you don’t know what is what. Sometimes people just rather avoid it all together because of the unknown. Luckily, we have online reviews that will hurry up and tell you right away what a scam is, but unfortunately, it takes someone to get scammed in order to give that review. Don’t be the next victim.

If you are someone who may not have the extra cash to pay for month-to-month satellite or cable television and you don’t own a computer or broadband connection either—you are missing out on many online television shows.
Even though there are a huge variety of channels, you still won’t be able to watch everything online. Some popular shows, such as The Biggest Loser, are very hard to track down on the web. If you do find these shows on the web, it may be coming from a source that isn’t licensed or allowed to even show it online.

Channel flipping is much more of a challenge online than it is on a regular television with a remote in one hand. You have 1000s of channels to select from, but surfing through them is not quite easy.
If your connection happens to drop, so does your streaming television online. Service can drop just from a bad connection or the bandwidth is used up to the max.
Well—these are just to name a few and of course the longer streaming television is online, the better we can hope this service will get.
