Definition Edit

Internet protocol television (IPTV) is the

[d]elivery of television content using Internet protocol within a 'walled garden network' (as opposed to 'Online TV' on open internet), over a broadband network. IPTV has been widely used by telecoms operators to offer TV over their DSL networks. IPTV can also be used by cable companies both within their own network infrastructure and as a means of expanding their service reach outside their areas of operation over unbundled third-party DSL networks.[1]

Overview Edit

IPTV uses a broadband connection to the Internet to deliver video programming instead of traditional broadcasting technologies.
