WHAT IS DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION?
Digital distribution or digital delivery is the practice of delivering content without the use of physical media, typically by downloading via the internet straight to a consumer’s home. Digital distribution can be done in conjunction or bypass conventional physical distribution media, such as paper or DVDs.
Digitally distributed content may be streamed or downloaded. Streaming involves downloading and using content “on-demand” as it is needed. Meanwhile, fully downloading the content to a hard drive or other form of storage media allows for quick access in the future.
