why is it that we are able to view television in real time, which is video, but when it comes to view streaming video on the internet or across a network bandwidth becomes such a factor. I guess what i dont understand is how a television signal differs from data packets in terms of bandwidth. For instance, cable television and high-speed cable Internet.
Why is that that the data rata could potentially fluctuate but we dont really have the same problem with television signals?
just a little confued. thanks for any help.
