Obviously, before you enter into the IPTV industry, you need to be very clear on what, exactly, IPTV is and how it works (read about how Hotel TV works). Many people know the basics of IPTV but don't have a full and complete understanding of it, which can obviously cause problems when you are attempting to make it your business and your livelihood.
At its most basic, IPTV involves finding subscribers and then providing them with video, television programming, and other services. Most of the time, these services will include at least the following:
- Live television
- Interactive TV
- Digital recording services
- Video on Demand (both paid and unpaid)
- Programming designed for many different platforms
These services are offered via the IP protocol, and thus generally have greater security and superior performance to older, more traditional means of providing television services. These features keep clients happier, which can lead to greater success for the businesses that offer these services, as well as the opportunity to increase their revenue.
