IPTV Definition

Internet Protocol television (IPTV) is the delivery of television content over Internet Protocol (IP) networks. This is in contrast to delivery through traditional terrestrial, satellite, and cable television formats. Unlike downloaded media, IPTV offers the ability to stream the source media continuously.


One of the advantages of IPTV is its capability to get easily integrated with other IP-based services such as VOIP or high-speed internet. It uses the existing computer network. Hence, no use of cables and is hassle free. It distributes live or prerecorded TV and video/audio over the preexisting network.
