What is IPTV?
IPTV has already taken its place among the rising treads of television broadcasting. Everyone with an Internet connection now has a chance to watch television. Although it may take some time to be accepted, it was a technology that quickly attracted people's attention. IPTV is an acronym for Internet Protocol Television.
How Does IPTV Work?
The operational logic of IPTV is quite simple. You will be provided with a private data channel via your Internet connection via the company providing the television broadcasting. In order to watch this broadcast, you need to have a box called Set Top Box. This box is provided to you by the company you are servicing. Also on new technological televisions, this box comes integrated in the television.
You can connect your modem to the Set Top Box and connect the Set Top Box to your TV via an HDMI or Scart cable.
It is also possible to directly connect your computer and connect the IPTV to the computer with the related software.
What is Set Top Box?
Set Top Box is a box shaped device designed to monitor IPTV broadcasts. Whether you are using USB, the Internet connection with the optical cable is transmitted to this box. The HDMI or Scart output on this box also sends the signals to the television. However, it should not be forgotten that the output ports on the Set Top Box may vary depending on the service provider. It is very important to pay attention to the exits on the box while receiving the service.
What are the advantages of IPTV?
To use IPTV, you do not need any terrestrial antenna or satellite antenna. In this respect, your broadcasts do not have weather interruptions. Since IPTV service providers are also Internet Service Providers at the same time, they are using their own Internet infrastructure, and it means that they can deal with any problems they may encounter as soon as possible.

Affordable Connection Speed for IPTV
Having a standard internet connection speed is enough to watch IPTV. However, the quality of the broadcast delivered to you is as important as the speed of your connection speed. An unstable data rate, pollution at the quality of the broadcast, will also cause the broadcast to be troubled. If you want to get IPTV service with 4K picture quality, you will need 4 times faster connection than the standard recommended 12 mbit Internet speed.
