The service provided to an end-user is consumption of streaming Multimedia. The end-user has a terminal that is able to request a media stream, either from a built-in player, or an installed application. The terminal can be any terminal with streaming media playing capabilities, and the service should allow a user to transfer between his terminals.
The basic scenario is where an individual is browsing the Internet and finds some interesting content that he/she wants to watch. The end-user is then either doing this through the operator's portal or accesses the content provider's site. In the first case, the request is then processed through the portal, and charged as the stream is set-up. In the second case, the content provider redirects the request to the operator, so that the terminal capabilities can be collected and charging is done, before the stream is started.
One scenario is an individual watching his favourite sports stream on his TV or PC at home, but he/she must leave the house of some reason, and still wants to continue the session on his mobile terminal. In that case he/she would transfer the ongoing session to the other terminal with other capabilities, since he already paid for the entire episode.
The other way is a similar case where an individual arrives at a destination with better viewing capabilities.
