What is IPTV?
The traditional way of watching a TV channel is to sit on the couch, turn on the TV and tune into the channel. That’s where IPTV brings about the paradigm shift. IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television and in simple words, it delivers the TV channels over the internet. The channels we watch on our TV are uplinked to the satellite from the source and then downlinked to the antenna either installed in our homes or at our cable operator’s location.
IPTV is much like regular digital streaming in the way that it lets you watch the content over the internet. But, one big difference between the two is that IPTV streams the live satellite channels that are currently being broadcast and not the content that is uploaded to a server. IPTV gives you the freedom to watch live TV channels anytime, anywhere as long as you have an app like Set TV, a device that can run the app and internet connectivity.
IPTV isn’t just about being able to watch your favorite channels on mobile devices while on the go. There is a rapidly growing population of cord-cutters who prefer IPTV over traditional cable TV even when they are home. IPTV services bring many more channels at one place as compared to a satellite TV subscription and at a much lower price.

Get a VPN
Have you ever wondered why in spite of a very fast internet connection your streaming experience is still sometimes below par? When we run into streaming troubles we often assume that there is a problem at the content provider’s end. That’s because we have no reason to believe that such a superfast connection could cause any buffering troubles.
Let’s not be mistaken! There is a good chance your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may be cutting down your internet speed to a level lower than they claim to provide. You could be the victim of Internet throttling, a phenomenon more common than you can think.
Your ISP is watching your internet activity and especially if you have been streaming a lot lately, they might throttle the speed. And, it might not even be illegal because you missed reading the fine prints of Terms of Service.
So, what do we do? Easy! Get a VPN for FireStick right now. A VPN masks your internet activities from your ISP and makes sure you enjoy online streaming to the full potential of your Internet connection.
