According to TechoPedia, Internet Protocol Television, or also known as IPTV, is the process of transmitting and broadcasting television signals and programs with the use of the internet through Internet Protocol (IP). In simpler terms, instead of getting the broadcast signals from the traditional medium such as antenna, satellite dish, or fiber-optic cable, you get them streamed or downloaded through your internet connection.


Did you know that according to experts, the IPTV global market is projected to triple in value by 2020? The growing popularity of smart TVs, or televisions that posses web-based features that let users browse the internet, watch television series online, stream movies, download music, and many more, is surely one of the reasons of the expected rise in value. 

As consumers veer towards the advanced technology, the emergence of different set-top boxes in the market is also rampant. Set-top boxes (also known as STB) is a technology that consists of a TV-tuner input and displays output to a television set. If you are the always-on-the-go person, you don’t need to worry about missing a single episode of your favorite series. This is because some STB allows you to record the on-going show so you can watch it at any time you want. According to an article written on How Stuff Works, real-time video streaming is also among the trend this 2018 as different companies and websites are offering extended services to their clients.
