How to connect Internet TV?
Before answering the question of howto connect Internet TV, let's take a quick look at what IP-TV is? IP-TV is called television, transmitted over the Internet. The provider receives a signal from the satellite and transmits it via a special protocol to users who are able to watch video on a computer screen or TV. The difference from the usual television broadcast is in the quality of the image, the number of channels, so that you can arrange movie sessions right at home.
Connecting ip-TV is possible,if on a conventional TV there is a Set top Box (STB) prefix, specially designed for decoding video data and outputting decrypted video to a television screen. Check with your provider which STB models are used for connection. Often used several at once. If you decide to watch IP-TV on a home computer monitor, you will not need to purchase an STB, it will be enough to connect to the Internet via xDSL or ETTH technologies and order the corresponding service.
How to connect ip-TV to subscribers of different networks
- This service is provided in every city,just look at ads relevant to your region. In any case, you need to take care of the availability of broadband Internet access (for the above xDSL or ETTH technologies). Ensure the actual incoming speed is not less than 6 Mb / s. If the speed is lower - instead of video you will enjoy something similar to a slide show. Some providers offer a package of services consisting of Internet and television, so they have already taken care of the quality and speed of the Internet.
- XDSL technology is very sensitive to the telephone parameters of the line (make sure that the cable is quality and your equipment is away from the ATS and electromagnetic fields).
- Remember that if you simultaneously watch IP-TV and upload data from the Internet, your communication channel will be distributed among these tasks and the quality of viewing will be poor.
