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.
