Knowing IPTV and its Types

Author: | Posted in Entertainment No comments

One of the things people enjoy to in their downtime is to watch on their favorite television series, or program. IPTV is one of the most in demand networks who delivers also the in demand television series straight to your television.

Basically, it is an internet dominated system. Instead of getting signal from cable connections, you get to watch your favorite series by streaming and storing. You can watch over and over again by later. Or you can watch them forever.

Well, that is just one of the nicest things about getting an IPTV premium. Now, let’s get to know what is IPTV and what are its types.

What is IPTV?

IPTV is essentially the delivery of media content, videos or live television over an IP network. This can either use the public internet or a private local area network or wide area network (WAN). An IPTV service can be delivered to an IP enabled TV, mobile phone, tablet, laptop or PC and can be easily incorporated into a video on demand solution.

this is commonly used by businesses and organisations to deliver TV to waiting areas, reception and common rooms often integrated with digital signage capabilities.

Basically, they say IPTV is now transforming television industry into the digital era. More likely, people are accepting it and have been very positive and active in implementing an  IPTV premium for themselves.

Three types of IPTV

IPTV premium comes in three different types or flavors.

The first kind will most likely be the you’re probably using already,is called video on demand (VOD). With a service such as Netflix, which is also an online video website. You select a TV program or movie you want to watch from a wide range, pay your money, and watch it there and then.

A different kind of IPTV is being offered by some of the world’s more enterprising TV broadcasters. In the UK, the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) makes its last week’s programs available online using a web-based streaming video player called the BBC iPlayer. This kind of service is sometimes called time-shifted IPTV, because you’re watching ordinary, scheduled broadcasts at a time that’s convenient for you.

The third kind of IPTV involves broadcasting live TV programs across the Internet as they’re being watched—so it’s live IPTV or IP simulcasting.

All three forms of IPTV premium  can work either using your computer and an ordinary web browser or a set-top box and an ordinary digital TV. All three can be delivered either over the public Internet or through a managed, private network that works in essentially the same way.
