if you want the best from your TV services, you need to check out IPTV. Fortunately, we’re bringing it to Manitoba. Keep reading to learn about why this is a technology you’ll want in your home.
What is IPTV?
The technology itself is fairly new, so there’s a good chance you may not be familiar with it yet. If we think about IP (Internet Protocol) as the language that devices communicate with over computer networks, it’s easier to understand how IPTV works. Basically, it allows information to be transferred to and from your television through the Internet protocol.
Why this Matters
At the moment, IP is probably how you have most devices in your home operating. From your phone to your DVR to your computer and, now, your television—all can be operated on the same network. This means they can all communicate with one another, as well, making it easier to sync them and leverage their capabilities on top of each other. IPTV is often provided along with phone and Internet through a Triple Play service that provides all of them through Internet Protocol on a closed network infrastructure.
Advantages Over Satellite
There are other benefits to utilizing IPTV, though, especially when compared to traditional options, like satellite. For example, IPTV allows the user to take a bigger role in their experience. Instead of simply accepting whatever the satellite companies provide you, IPTV allows you to customize your experience. The main advantage is that the quality of the signal with IPTV is not weather dependent. Our services are not affected by rain or snow on everyone’s dish. The cost and selection is better and of course it is easier to Bundle all of your services when they are delivered through the same medium.
You don’t lose any options with IPTV in terms of devices you can use. In fact, when you connect a device to the network, you’ll be able to use it on any TV in the house. So, for example, the show you recorded with a DVR on one TV can be watched on any set in the house.
CommStream looks forward to providing every home in Manitoba with the IPTV service they want. It’s the future of watching television.
