Downloading is cheaper. Streaming requires a fast internet connection too ...atleast 3g.

But with my GPRS...download continues

Hope this helps:

When you stream a video or music, the file itself doesn’t live on your device’s hard drive. It’s accessed on the internet, temporarily, while you’re using it. That’s why streaming is used by many sites offering free or rented content: you have access to it but you don’t “own” the content. Streaming is great for watching or listening to content on any device – your internet-connected TV, smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Streaming works better with a faster internet connection as you’re listening or watching in real-time.

By contrast, when you download a video or music, the file itself lives on your hard drive and takes up space there. This means that, once downloaded, you can use it again and again, and not have to download it each time. However, you often have to pay more for downloaded content than you would if you streamed it because you “own” the file. Plus, with downloaded content, it can be challenging to use it across multiple devices.

If it's the same video, the data required is the same whether you download it or you stream it. The only difference is that you can access the downloaded video after the browsing session.
