What is IPTV?

As the name suggests, IPTV is television broadcast over Internet Protocols, which essentially means 'television services provided through internet and broadband connections instead of radio frequency'.

IPTV is reputed to be the most efficient way to provide digital TV to the public, but isn't to be confused with watching television shows on your computer using an on-demand service (like 4oD), or watching video on your computer on a site such as YouTube.

With IPTV, you can get a huge array of channels transmitted to your home TV over your home phone line using IPTV set-top box. IPTV is often bundled with packages offering broadband, video on demand (VOD) and voice over IP (VoIP). Together the bundles are often referred to as “Triple Play”.
