To the people who have been living under a rock for the past couple of decades, or for those who are too young and only know of Netflix and such, IPTV is what you would call the origination of Netflix, it was that buffer stage in technology which is still pretty popular and perfect for those people who want to watch cable channels and only streaming services are not doing it for them. As a lot of people know, satellite TV and normal cable TV has become out of date and hd iptv streaming is the new hot thing in the market, and not just because it’s new, it is a genuinely better way of consuming normal television content. But what is this technology for the people who haven’t heard about it.
IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television and as the name suggests basically transmits channel and content over the internet rather than through the antenna like the really old systems or through the cables of the recent past. And people who don’t understand and are worried about the whole, “will I have to download the whole content before watching?” folks the answer is no. Streaming means that you are downloading the content as you are watching it, as soon as you stop playing the download stops as well, so the response is instantaneous. This technology before becoming mainstream among the consumers was famous in corporations and offices to transfer files within a system.
WHY IS IT BETTER THAN YOUR OLD SYSTEM?
The first things to know is that the quality is way better and you can adjust the quality based on the internet plan that you have or if you simply wish to save some data. It can also be adjusted if you get a better TV and you won’t have to get an entirely new system to upgrade the quality. The only thing you will have to make sure is that you have fast enough internet. Some other reason why this system is better is that you can pause or play the current show from the start before waiting for it to finish downloading or broadcasting. You can also ask for specific content as video on demand. You also have the option of playing something which was broadcasted earlier in the day or a few hours ago. Some systems even let you record stuff so in case your internet goes off you still can save your favorite movies to watch later.
The cost of IPTV streaming is actually not that different then cable or a Netflix subscription, the major costs associated before was the amount of data which used to be consumed while using it. But as the cost of data and availability increased the cost of the service also reduced and that has been one of the biggest reasons for its popularity. Sometimes streaming platforms like Amazon Prime, Netflix are not enough, and you might need access to your regular TV channels
