Free IPTV

What is free IPTV? Lets start by defining the term IPTV.

IPTV or Internet Protocol Television is television that is served over an IP (Internet Protocol) Network, such as the Internet or a Local Area Network (LAN) in buildings or campuses.

This is different from television as we know it, which is normally distributed through traditional broadcast methods or cable. With Internet TV streamed TV, video and radio are transmitted via broadband access.

It goes without saying that Free IPTV is Internet Protocol TV for which you do not have to pay for the content you view or to gain access to the content providers' networks.

You can get free Internet Protocol Television by using the services of providers like Zattoo.com , Youtube.com, Joost, Hulu, Babelgum, Vuze, Veoh, BBC Iplayer, ITV IPlayer, etc. or trawling through directories. 

What to expect

If you have access to IPTV you can expect to receive terrestrial & satellite television channels, Radio stations, Videos & DVDs, Videos-on-demand (VoD), etc. in standard format or in high definition.

IPTV has also been called non-linear TV or on-demand broadcasting. It is used to deliver standard channels which are available on satellite, or alternatively digital TV which is downloaded using peer-to-peer distribution technology from providers such as kontiki.
Most people now dream of a world where all TV is delivered via Internet Protocol.
