  32. 32. Internet TVTelevision services in Malaysia
  33. 33. Internet TV Intro • Internet Television is a general term that covers the delivery of television shows and other video content over the internet by video streaming technology, typically by major traditional television broadcasters • one can have access to many channels but the quality is too poor and sometimes the signal is not that stable.Television services in Malaysia
  34. 34. Transit television Different between IPTV and internetSome of the key technical characteristics of an IPTV platform include:• Broadcast channels, when provided over IP (rather than hybrid DTT), are streamed using multicast technologies.• Operators run extensive QOS practices, managing the delivery of video to the consumer with minimal interruptions.• Digital Rights Management (DRM) is standard, with operators providing high levels of video asset management and encryption.• Delivery of content is device specific. This used to mean STBs but its important to note that PCs are not excluded from true IPTV delivery as they can operate in the same way as a STB.• Provisioning, billing and customer service methods are the same as traditional TV platforms.Television services in Malaysia
  35. 35. Transit television • Internet TV, however, relies on a much more open model by streaming content over the public internet and is available to the widest audience possible. Key characteristics can include: • Delivery of video can be encrypted, and DRM can be used, but is not always adopted. • Networks are not fully managed and there is no end-to-end bandwidth provisioning as operators cannot control the networks - as a result QOS is limited, but we are seeing development with some services. • Channels are streamed using unicast technologies with peer-to- peer technologies also being used in some cases. • Customer service is largely online and customer management is much less developed.Television services in Malaysia
