Today, more and more people are using their smartphones instead of computers. In fact, projections for the future of computing show that by 2020, the vast majority of people will use smartphones for their day to day “computing”.
While most people currently use their desktop computers to stream their movies, based on those projections, in less than 4 years, we will have more people streaming movies and TV Shows from their mobile phones. This is equally corroborated with networks like Hulu and Netflix, that observe a rise of at least 10% year after year for smartphone movie consumption.
This also means that the all time popular torrent apps will become even more popular.
Downloading your torrents mean that you can carry your favorite movies and latest TV Shows on the go. Those apps not only allow you to download movies, but also stream them.
– About Streaming
Streaming has both its pros and cons. Streaming means that you can watch your movies “live” whenever you want. Those apps connect to the torrent network and retrieve them on demand. However, the major disadvantage with streaming content is that you need a live Internet connection. Depending on the video quality you want to stream, you will also need a fairly speedy connection as video media consume more bandwidth than web pages. Therefore, this means that you are unlikely to stream torrent videos with your 3G and 4G connections, as they are limited and capped.
