IPTV vs TV on Demand (Video on Demand)

The world of television has changed. Thanks to the overwhelming benefits of the Internet, we are no longer slaves to the TV program schedule because users now have a choice to watch whatever and whenever they like at their own leisure. Control has shifted from broadcasters to viewers, there are no set timetables, most adverts can be skipped.

What is TV on demand?

It is a digital cable television service that enables you to browse videos from a program library and watch them whenever circumstances suit you. With interactive functionality, all it takes is a remote control to play your videos instantly on the TV, and use classic features like Pause, Fast Forward, Rewind, Stop, and Play.

How does it work?

TV on demand systems either stream content through a set-top box, PC, or any other device which allows real-time viewing, or download content to your PC, digital video recorder, or any portable media player. Providers usually offer both services, but some content, such as new blockbuster movies, must be paid for online first.

What types do exist?

  • Transactional video on demand (customers pay for each individual piece of video content)
  • Catch-up TV (customers can view a program after it was originally aired)
  • Subscription models (Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, etc.)
  • Near video on demand (pay-per-view video technique distributed by satellite and cable TV)
  • Push video on demand (providers push content without the viewers having requested it)
  • Advertising video on demand (companies can advertise on broadcast and cable channels to reach people using the TV on demand services)

What is IPTV?

IPTV is is a service that includes providing your traditional TV channels (i.e.live channels) to your home through your internet service provider network.This service is available with the purchase of one of BeotelNet’s packages.

How does IPTV work?

IPTV services are provided through the linear/live content from content providers (i.e. the channels you want to watch and the channels you are subscribed to). This can be done through various methods (satellite downlinking or over IP). Afterward, the content is processed (encoding/transcoding, compression, encryption, etc.) and then multicast in the network.
