Another broadcasting techology is ipTV which is the short form of Internet Protocol television. The services are given by using an internet connection. Many do not know about ipTV but it has many features which people are aware of.
IPTV has three services which are actually separated into three groups:
-You can view live television, without or with the interactivity of the tv shows which are shown currently
-You can replay tv shows which were shown on television either a few hours ago or even a few days ago, you can also replay the current shows from the beginning and this is called time shifted television.
-Video on Demand (VOD) is another feature of ipTV,this allows you to view a range of videos from learning something to health, to general knowledge.
IPTV is a service which is not affected by rain like DTH service is. One of the other advantages is that only one single telephone line is used which enables a telephone to be used along with the internet and IPTV.
Currently in India ipTV is provided by Airtel, Reliance, MTNL and BSNL.
