Traditionally there are two approaches of watching TV programs – Over-the-air broadcasts and cable TV. Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) and Internet TV started gaining prominence with advancements in internet technology. While the traditional approaches rely on signals from satellite for displaying contents, but IPTV and Internet TV uses internet for transmitting programs in the form of data. IPTV delivers programs through dedicated and private Internet Protocol (IP) networks and can stream any media continuously. IPTV often requires equipment including set-top boxes and provides content-on-demand and live channels. Unlike IPTV, Internet TV uses general internet and could be accessed from TVs, PCs, and smartphones easily.

Also, weak internet infrastructure and unreliable internet connection leads to frequent disconnections which affects the internet TV market. This challenge is more relevant during live streaming since video cannot be buffered for compensating the internet disconnection period.
