IPTV (Internet Protocol television) is the streamed delivery of video content encoded as a series of Internet Protocol (IP) packets. Traditionally, IPTV is distributed by a service provider and can deliver either live TV or stored video. IPTV is often bundled with other broadband Internet services — VoIP (Voice over IP) being the most common.
Unlike the broadcast model with digital or analog cable television, IPTV sends only one program at a time per set-top box. When a viewer changes the channel, delivery of the original stream is stopped and a new stream is transmitted from the provider’s server directly to the viewer.
