Hello guys. It’s a lovely weekend and I feel like sharing with you guys this very important guide | EduTechTainMent All-In-One Guide to Entertainment | IPTV, PayTV, OTT. This will allow you to enjoy the Christmas and Newyear celebrations with your friends and families.
Pay TV and OTT (Over The Top) are two similar business models that allow end-users/consumers to subscribe to television content. Pay Tv is more expensive and requires the leasing or purchase of a proprietary satellite dish network Set Top Box (STB). OTT delivers its contents through a proprietary Content Delivery Network (CDN) over the public internet.
Over The Air (OTA) television signals are freely accessible through an antenna; Pay TV signals are encrypted to prevent service theft. Firmware in the proprietary STB decrypts the Digital Television (DTV) signals from the Pay TV service providers and allows access to contents based on the consumers’ subscription plan. Some popular Pay TV service providers in Africa are StarTimes, DSTv, etc.
Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, YouTube, etc provide Over The Top (OTT) DTV signals over the public internet. Some of these services maybe offered freely or based on monthly or yearly subscription plans. The signals maybe encrypted also to prevent service theft. Some also provide ad services as source of revenue while others adopt the Pay-Per-View marketing model.
Most 21st century television sets are now smart devices that can wirelessly access the internet to stream media from these service OTT providers. Those who do not have smart Tv sets can also buy standalone devices such as Amazon Firestick, Roku, Google Chromecast, and many other third-party OEM android boxes to connect to their TV sets. These OTT services need internet data which can be gotten from various Internet Service Providers (ISP).
Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) is the delivery of DTS over the internet and is different from cable or satellite TV provision. IPTV offers three types of services. Video-On-Demand (VOD) in which viewers can watch any trending video they demand from the IPTV service providers. Time-shifted media which provides viewers with latest episodes for a limited time within which viewers can “catch-up” watching the shows. Live IPTV allows viewers to watch live TV program transmissions. Some IPTV services are free to access while some require a subscription plan.
Now we have a basic understanding about the above concepts, let’s dive in and learn about how to access these services using the EduTechTainMent All-In-One Guide to Entertainment | IPTV, PayTV, OTT.
