What is IPTV and how it works

Before explaining in detail the procedures needed to install IPTV on Smart TV, I intend to briefly explain what IPTV is and how it works, so that you can understand how to best use this technology.

IPTV is the acronym for Internet Protocol Television and, as the name suggests, it is a system that allows you to watch TV through the use of the Internet connection and through the TCP / IP protocol.

This use of content has enormous potential even if, recently, it has been a bit set aside in favor of OTT  ( Over-The-Top ) technology, which is based on that of IPTV but also guarantees the possibility of viewing the content in on-demand mode. An example of the latter technology is represented by the most famous streaming platforms, such as Netflix,  Amazon Prime Video, or, for sports content, DAZN.

Also, you should know that IPTV technology is often misused to watch pay-TV channels for free; this type of use is absolutely not recommended, as it is against the law and very severe penalties are foreseen even for those who benefit from it.

Now that you understand how IPTV technology works, you can move on to the practical part of this tutorial. In the next paragraphs, I will show you in detail how to connect the Smart TV to the Internet and I will tell you about some useful applications to watch IPTV on Smart TV, also indicating the procedure for configuring a recommended app, SS IPTV.
