Streaming is the name given to delivering video and audio content live over the internet, so that it can be consumed / experienced without a downloading delay, as opposed to downloading media first and then consuming it later. The process can be used for broadcasting of live performances, although there is always a delay in digital systems.
Although it has been possible for several years to stream classical music over the internet, the practice has become more common during the COVID-19 pandemic.
