    Lightbulb What is IPTV ?

    Cable, satellite, and terrestrial send content to the home by transmitting up to 1,000 channels at the same time. This requires a lot of expensive bandwidth and infrastructure; equipment cost also increases the more programs consumers want to watch or record simultaneously. There is also no easy way for consumers to share content between their TVs and mobile devices.
    In contrast, IPTV (Internet Protocol TeleVision) uses a fast broadband connection (typically DSL or FTTH) to deliver content to the home, sending only those programs being watched or recorded. This substantially reduces bandwidth and infrastructure costs; equipment costs are also reduced regardless how many programs consumers want to watch or record simultaneously. Sophisticated program guides are now possible, such as the previewing of several other channels while watching the main program. This same broadband connection also provides voice (VoIP) and data (Internet) connections for the home.
    IPTV also fits easily into the home entertainment network, enabling the streaming of videos, music, and photos around the home, mobile access to content, PVR and voicemail control via the Internet, home security monitoring, and remote home automation control.
