Internet Protocol television

Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) is a digital television broadcasting system that uses the internet to deliver video content to viewers. It is a method of distributing television content over IP networks, as opposed to traditional terrestrial, satellite, or cable television delivery systems.

IPTV uses a two-way communication system, in which video content is encoded and sent as IP packets over the internet to the viewer's device, such as a computer, tablet, or smart TV. The viewer's device then decodes the IP packets and displays the video content on the screen.

IPTV allows for a high level of interactivity and customization, as viewers can select which programs they want to watch and when they want to watch them. It also enables new revenue streams for content providers, as they can offer on-demand programming, pay-per-view services, and targeted advertising to viewers.

There are two main types of IPTV: live IPTV and video-on-demand IPTV. Live IPTV streams live television programming, while video-on-demand IPTV allows viewers to select and watch content on-demand.

IPTV has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many traditional cable and satellite TV providers now offering IPTV services alongside their traditional services. Additionally, there are now many standalone IPTV providers that offer a wide range of channels and programming options to viewers around the world.
