What is Internet Streaming?

Internet streaming is a way of listening to our audiobooks on a PC via the internet. Instead of having to download a file completely before being able to listen to it, our members hear the sound as it arrives at their computer, and therefore do not have to wait for a complete download before listening to their chosen audiobook.

Members can simply come to our website and log in with their username and password. Once in the members only section, they click on ‘Listen here’ and choose a book they are interested in listening to. When they have selected a book, they click Streaming icon , and the audiobook will begin to play. They are able to click through the chapters as they wish to hear them, and bookmark their place, so they can return to exactly the right spot next time they log in.

A member streamingInternet streaming users may listen to as many audiobooks as many times as they like,
on any PC, whether it be in their home, school or work place and at any time during the
day. This means our members don’t have to worry about breaking, losing or sending audiobooks back to us, and of course this is invaluable for our members who are studying as they no longer have to wait for the audiobook to become available.

We have over one thousand fiction and non fictionaudiobooks available for streaming for both adults and children, including many set texts, study guides and subject specific titles. To see which titles we have available to be streamed please search the catalogue with the streaming option ticked.
