IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) is a system that delivers TV through the internet. No dish or aerial is required.
The consumer uses an IPTV set top box which is connected to both the internet and the TV.
Currently there are a number of IPTV set top boxes on the market which deliver all the UK Free channels such as BBC, ITV etc.
This system is ideal for people who, for whatever reason, cannot have a dish fitted or their dish is not big enough to receive channels.
A reasonable internet speed is required and systems vary in terms of how they will perform with low internet speeds. Some IPTV systems will as low as 1 Mbit/s but some recommend 3 Mbit/s
