Will Internet Television Replace Terrestrial Televisions?
Here comes the term “IPTV” (Internet Television Protocol), quite simply…getting your TV fix through Internet Connection rather than typical “Terrestrial Network”. another form of IPTV definition is “Web Streaming”. yes, it is, but the bandwidth requires a much more stable and 10 times higher than Radiofrequency…which means 10-100+Mbps for a better slingshot to your home base.
Well, my first favorable view is that we don’t have to miss favorite programs and even live to stream because in web-tv, we can manipulate by “Watch later” / “Save” or “Download”…it’s up to your preferences of what quality, how many episodes or time intervals…isn’t that great!. and another one is “Multi-Casting”, we can share or cast a program or channel to various devices such as our phone/Pc/Consoles, etc. at a time.
With emerging 5G/6G technologies, we can expect even more diversified experiences such as AR/VR and even hologramic Television. just now it supports up to 4k/8k resolution in high bandwidth WebTV. enhancing the digital revolution is not complete without the term – “Television”. thus, it soon will emerge as the main entertainment base for mankind. Unlike in terrestrial networks, IPTV always offers all the channels or programs throughout the world but with some exceptions like “Subscriptions” or “Regional-Sensors”.
Ongoing development of Satellite constellations such as “Starlink” / “Kuiper” will make even more enriched advantages over the vanilla version of WebTV applications. some of the well famous OTT services like “Apple tv+” / “Roku” / “Amazon fire tv” delivers some of the early access to this innovation by giving premium contents and original production in their own studios directly to the users. newly-introduced feature “PayPerView” is also available now, u may pay as per ur program or channel for time desired frames.
