Streaming vs Downloading – Which One is Better for You

2517

Quality

The quality of the content you are streaming depends on your web connect and on the device you are using. This means that even if you are promised a movie with a high quality, at the end its quality depends on side factors. Playing downloaded digital content, on the other hand, does not involve things like hiccups and poor quality, unless the file itself is corrupted.
Winner – Downloading. What you get is what you see.

Quantity

If you set aside a monthly budget of just $10 for digital content and invest them into digital downloads, you will listen to around 10 new tracks that month. If, however, you use them to subscribe to a streaming music service, you will have access to millions of songs.
Winner – Streaming services are perfect for binge watchers.

Malware

If you are not carefully selecting the stores from which you download digital content, you may end up paying for a virus or some other type of malware. Streaming digital content can also add viruses, malware or even spyware to your computer. In fact, when your device is attached through a streaming platform, it can be hard to detect. As a result, the attack is often silent.
Winner – Here we have a tie.
