On first hearing about IPTV, many people are not convinced that it is worth the try. But if you compare the new platform vis-à-vis conventional TV services such as cable TV, terrestrial analog TV and even digital satellite TV; it is easy to see why IPTV has such a universal appeal for the modern consumer.
What is IPTV?
IPTV is the short form of the term internet protocol TV. In other words , it is a form of subscription TV service whose transmission takes place across the internet's ubiquitous network of packet switching media. As such, all you need is a working internet connection and a compatible TV platform to receive the service.
There are many people who are moving over to the new fangled IPTV service platform and they all have their own reasons. The most oft repeated justification for making the IPTV switch though is the sheer convenience of it all. You can forget about connecting cantankerous cables as well as aligning receivers to get IPTV signal for instance.
IPTV is also preferred by many because it offers more choice to the TV consumer. Not only are there far more varied channels available on an IPTV package but the user can also customize their experience easily. There are easily customizable IPTV playlist files ready for download at your provider's website for this purpose.
