IPTV Service:

What is it?

Imagine you turn the TV on after coming back home from a tiring day at work, or school, hoping to relax watching your favorite TV show, but realize bitterly that it has already ended. So you are obliged to watch whatever is on, however boring it might be. What if you had the opportunity to change that? What if watching TV was more like surfing the Web, so you were able to choose any TV program you wanted at any time? Now there is a solution, and it is absolutely IPTV – Internet Protocol Television: a service that delivers TV programs ‘on demand’ using Internet technology. If you are curious about how it works, what are its advantages and why you will not regret using it, keep reading!

What is IPTV? As you already know, traditional television operates through rooftop antennas, satellite dishes, or fiber-optic cables – which capture the broadcast signals and deliver them to your home. With IPTV you will need none of the above mentioned, all you will need is an Internet connection.  Your desired TV programs will be streamed (which means downloaded and played almost simultaneously) in a continuous way. Unlike downloaded media, streaming media offers the ability to a client media player to begin playing the content (TV channel, or else) almost instantly. Here you can find a comparison between traditional TV and IPTV, so you can understand how they differ:

With traditional TV, users adjust to specific channels within the signal either through cable (a wired connection) or through satellite (a wireless one).

On the other hand, IPTV uses a network based on Internet protocol (IP) to deliver TV channels to users’ set-top box. Internet Protocol is the language that is used for transferring data packets between devices attached to the network. So instead of using cable or satellite, the content will be offered to you through the same client-server technology that provides websites, email, and other Internet-based services.

IPTV allows users to request a specific content over the Internet at any time, by storing the programming on servers at transmitting end – unlike cable or satellite which broadcast content in real time, in a transmit and forget mode.

IPTV types

There are three main categories for IPTV services:

  • VOD – Video on demand: within a wide range of TV programs or movies, you select the one you prefer, pay for it, and watch it any time.
  • Live television and live media, with related interactivity.
  • Time-shifted media: replaying a TV show that was broadcast hours or days before (catch-up TV) or replaying the current TV show from the beginning (start-over TV).

All three types of IPTV can be delivered either over the public Internet or through a managed, private network. You can use all three IPTV forms through your computer and an ordinary web browser, through a set-top box connected to your television screen, or even on a mobile device like a smartphone, iPad, etc.

IPTV – how does it work?

IPTV is much more like browsing the Internet, rather than like zapping (traditional TV channel surfing). The mechanism it uses in order to deliver the content to the viewer is IP (Internet Protocol). The TV programs, or videos, are divided into data packets in different sources (servers) and are sent over the Internet, when the viewer requests one specifically – just by clicking on it. Fiber-optic cables send your requests out to the video servers and they transmit shows back to your existing households using your Internet connection.
