How Is IPTV Different To Cable Or Satellite?
Cable and Satellite:
Both allowing the user to watch the certain channels. The difference between cable and satellite are simple. Cable TV will use fibre or another type of connection to deliver their signal to a box that is then transmitted to the TV.
Whereas Satellite TV will use a dish that will capture a signal transmitted via a satellite in space, the signal is then transmitted into a box then onto the television.
This allows providers to send UHD quality TV channels and movies to a set-top box over the internet that has a connection speed of only 10MBPS. IPTV uses servers to get the content onto the TV, by using an app it connects to a provider’s services thus streaming the content directly onto the TV.
IPTV: Uses a different way of getting content to the TV. By using television broadcast over Internet Protocols or IPTV, companies can now offer uses Internet Protocol (IP). Internet Protocol or IP is the term used for transferring data packets between computers connected to the internet.
