Internet TV is “internet protocol television”. All that suggests that television channels are being transmitted using the internet. To explain what that means, you need to understand a little about how non-Internet TV operates. With cable or satellite TV, broadcasters transmit signals and spectators receive them and you’re only capable to watch what’s being transmitted.
Internet TV is contrary. Rather than broadcasting content through a cable or a satellite, Internet TV broadcasts programs and movies within your conventional internet connection. Rather than broadcasting a series of programs on a time-shifted media.
