That’s why the future of iptv is likely to involve viewers buying set-top boxes (sometimes called stbs) that receive input from your internet connection (either via an ethernet cable or wi-fi ), decode the signal, and display a picture on your high-definition , widescreen tv. Stbs are effectively standalone computers programmed to do only one thing: receive packets of streamed video, decrypt them, convert them back to video files (mpeg2, mpeg4, or whatever format they were in originally), and then display them as high-quality tv pictures.
The simple but amazing consequence of this is that as long as you can turn information into packets, you can send it over the internet—whatever the information might be. That’s why the internet can be used for sending emails, downloading web pages, making telephone calls (using a technology known as voip (voice over internet protocol) , watching tv—and doing a dozen other things that have not yet been invented.
With luck, iptv may take off in exactly the same way as broadband internet did in the early 2000s: back then, as more people used the internet, they felt hampered by the limitations of dial-up connectivity, demanded (and showed they were willing to pay for) higher-quality broadband, and provided enough revenue for the telecommunications companies to upgrade their networks.
Once a viewer has selected a program, you need to be able to encode the video file in a suitable format for streaming, encrypt it (encoding it so only people who’ve paid can decode and receive it), embed advertisements (especially if the program is free), and stream it across the internet to anything from one person to (potentially) thousands or millions of people at a time.
All three forms of iptv can work either using your computer and an ordinary web browser or (for much better quality) a set-top box and an ordinary digital tv. All three can be delivered either over the public internet or through a managed, private network that works in essentially the same way (for example, from your telephone and internet service provider to your home entirely through the provider’s network).
