Internet Protocol television (IPTV), is the delivery of television content over Internet Protocol (IP) networks. Also note that, this is in contrast to delivery through traditional terrestrial, satellite and cable television formats.

Unlike downloaded media, IPTV offers the ability to stream the source media continuously. As a result, a client media player can begin playing the content (such as a TV channel) almost immediately.
