What is IPTV?

What IPTV is and what it isn’t

Currently, there are many providers of IPTV. Some are legitimate businesses that have paid copyright usage fees, and then you have others that fall into a grey area, and take advantage of copyright loopholes. You may have heard of Netflix, Hulu, and a few other services. These fall into the former category.

As for the latter category, you have a myriad of “a gray area” services. These content providers charge a small fee and broadcast Live TV, Video on Demand, and also include PPV events at no additional cost.

Everyone loves the content of premium satellite and cable companies, but most feel that the prices are just too high, so they go in search of cheaper alternatives. Though Netflix and Hulu are great services, some people want MORE. They turn to the other service providers and are quickly sold on the price and the amount of content they are receiving. They rush to the post office and return their boxes and anxiously run back home to enjoy this newly found service. These service providers vary in quality from basement operations to impressive setups that include offices and toll-free technical support. They can range in price, but what they do have in common is that they are MUCH, MUCH cheaper than traditional satellite and cable companies.

Unfortunately, many people are under the impression that these service providers are an exact replacement for traditional TV services. For the casual viewer, this may be the case, and it’s a great solution. Unfortunately for the die-hard TV users, the disabled sitting at home channel surfing, and the children being “babysat” by a TV, it can be a very frustrating experience. Issues with buffering, channels not being available, Electronic Programming Guides not matching, the list can go on and on.

Those that choose to use these services must understand that they can never, honestly expect the same results as traditional providers. Every single provider will have hardware downtime, issues with channels and occasional total blackouts. Again, for the casual TV viewer, this is not a problem. They most likely have a backup provider that they can turn to if they need to watch a certain show, or can just simply change the channel.

Some of these services will be better than others. Some will go through periods of working great for a few months, then start having issues. Some will disappear after a few months, and some will continue to invest in hardware as they grow.

Then there is the issue of understanding your equipment. Why is an Ethernet connection better than WiFi? Why does your service buffer certain times of the day? Is your ISP throttling your connection? Why does it work when I use a VPN? If you decide to try out any of these IPTV Providers, be prepared to do a little leg work. You will need to understand some of the basics. YouTube is an excellent source of information. Use it!

Get to know the setup you have and what will best work for you. Don’t expect these services to be an exact replacement for satellite and cable. If you do, you will be disappointed and very frustrated.

Understand what IPTV is and what it is Not.

For the majority of users that have bothered to educate themselves with this new technology, these services are a blessing. No more paying the ridiculous prices of the big traditional providers.

For those that think that these services should provide you the same service as the big boys…. Think again. You TRULY get what you pay for. So save yourself some heartache, and do some research on what you are getting into.

If you go in knowing what it is, and what it is not, you will be happy with some extra money in your wallet every month.
