45 Video Streaming Innovations

From App-Enabled Streaming Sticks to Hybrid Streaming Services

— April 7, 2015 — Tech
These video streaming innovations range from curated TV subscriptions to app-enabled streaming sticks that feature PC capabilities in a compact package. As traditional media becomes more mobile, brands are recognizing the importance of versatile video subscriptions and compact devices that can be used while on-the-go.

While traditional cable may have been the go-to for most in the past, others are cord cutting with the help of streaming services and products that offer TV access wherever you are.

Standouts from this list include sports-focused streaming services that will appeal to fans of football along with mini PCs that offer storage and multi-media access in the palm of one's hand. While the first example zones in on a particular interest for most streaming enthusiasts, the latter is focused on convenience and mobility.
