IP TV

instead of being delivered through traditional terrestrial, satellite signal, and cable television formats.

IPTV, Internet Protocol television is a system through which television services are delivered using the Internet Protocol suite.

IPTV services may be classified into three main groups:

  • Live television, with or without interactivity related to the current TV show;
  • Time shifted television: catch-up TV (replays a TV show that was broadcast hours or days ago), start-over TV (replays the current TV show from its beginning);
  • Video on demand (VOD): browse a catalog of videos, not related to TV programming.
