Last weekend marked a virtual Super Saturday: there was a record 24 hours for internet usage in the UK.

From 10.35am on Saturday 21 November to the same time the next day, TalkTalk customers used 41.2million gigabytes of data, driven largely by streaming, which has now spread across most multimedia platforms.

Not so long ago we would largely watch terrestrial television, buy physical copies of films we wanted to see or go to the cinema, and snap-up CDs or vinyl for our music fix. It’s worked wonders for decluttering homes.

Is Online Video Streaming Killing the Internet — and the Environment?

What comes to mind when the topic of “online video consumption” gets brought up? Do you immediately think of streaming platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo? Do you think of the ever-popular social networks, such as Tik Tok, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc? Perhaps you think of those Netflix/Hulu/HBO Now marathons? Then again, it’s not all fun like watching live gameplay on Twitch — many of us only have time for serious usage of online video. In these post-pandemic days, you might only have the bandwidth for online classes, online conferences/events, and maybe a dash of online fitness.

  • Google is circumventing Apple’s App Store policies to launch its video game streaming service on iPhones and iPads.
