What is Theta Network ?

Many video streaming channels use this network to broadcast or capture live videos, including Samsung VR, Shout!, and Theta.tv, which belongs to this network. The main idea behind creating this network is to bring the benefits of blockchain to the video delivery industry, which is getting more popular these days.
