Web Protocol TV (IPTV) is the conveyance of TV content over Internet Protocol (IP) organizations. This is as opposed to conveyance through customary earthbound, satellite, and digital TV designs.

Accordingly, a customer media player can start playing the substance, (for example, a TV channel) very quickly. This is known as streaming media.

IPTV administrations might be ordered into live TV and live media, with or without related intuitiveness; time moving of media, e.g., get up to speed TV (replays a TV show that was communicated hours or days prior), begin once again TV (replays the current TV show from its start); and video on request (VOD) which includes perusing and survey things of a media inventory.

Up until the mid 1990s, it was not idea conceivable that a TV program could be crushed into the restricted telecom transfer speed of a copper phone link to give a video-on-request (VOD) TV administration of satisfactory quality, as the necessary data transmission of a computerized TV signal was around 200 Mbps, which was multiple times more prominent than the data transfer capacity of a discourse signal over a copper phone wire. VOD administrations were just made conceivable because of two significant mechanical turns of events: discrete cosine change (DCT) video pressure and uneven advanced supporter line (ADSL) information transmission. DCT is a lossy pressure method that was first proposed by Nasir Ahmed in 1972, and was subsequently adjusted into a movement remunerated DCT calculation for video coding norms, for example, the H.26x designs from 1988 onwards and the MPEG designs from 1991 onwards. Motion-repaid DCT video pressure fundamentally diminished the measure of transfer speed needed for a TV signal, while simultaneously ADSL expanded the transmission capacity of information that could be sent over a copper phone wire. ADSL expanded the transmission capacity of a phone line from around 100 kbps to 2 Mbps, while DCT pressure decreased the necessary transfer speed of an advanced TV signal from around 200 Mbps down to around 2 Mbps. The blend of DCT and ADSL advances made it conceivable to essentially execute VOD administrations at around 2 Mbps transmission capacity in the 1990s.
