The number one reason which many people are confused about is that the Internet does not work with the help of satellite. It rather works with the help of radio waves that connect a device to another with the connections of an internet provider. Television connections are connected to us with the help of a satellite and no radio waves are connecting a device to another for the broadcast.

The second biggest reason is related to the first – For internet we use the word ‘streaming’ and for television, it is broadcasting. Streaming means that the waves are making the content on your phone or any other device work.
While broadcasting means that a provider will send the signals to the satellite and the same thing will air on all the devices available. It uses the same channel on a given point of time.
Next in the list is, Internet videos.Any content is not subject to a particular channel but anyone at any given point of time can look for the researches they desire. The case is not the same as television.
Let us take an example-
HBO at the time is showing “Troy”, you do not have an option other than either watching it or changing the channel. The choice is of the broadcasting company and not you. Hence, providing the material in good quality leads to no buffering.
