IPTV FAQ


What is IPTV?

IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television. IPTV is used to deliver TV programming and services through your property’s internet service or LAN (Local Area Network) connection. IPTV uses  data, CAT 5 or CAT 6 cables rather than the coaxial cables commonly used by satellite or cable television companies.

 IPTV for Video On-Demand

 IPTV offers streaming media options for Video on Demand (VOD) which can be used to generate revenue for your hotel property. IPTV also offers show replays and time-shifting, so previously aired TV shows can be played at any time.

 Hotel Welcome Screen / Property Channel


 IPTV offers you the ability to have a branded and customized welcome screen for your guests.

Integrated and Customized Content with IPTV

 IPTV offers a completely integrated content delivery system to your guest room TV’s. Besides a custom property channel, you can include other customized content, such as:

  •  Guest information services
  • Property amenities
  • Local tourist attractions
  • Business partner affiliate advertising
  • Billing Services
  • Other relevant content to your hotel guests


 What is the difference between Internet Television and IPTV for hospitality properties?

IPTV is different from Internet Television because IPTV properties have their own on-site distribution equipment which delivers content to multiple rooms. IPTV for hospitality properties requires subscriber-based TV programming (cable television programming, satellite television programming) and high speed internet access.

 How is the content delivered to guest room TV’s?

 IPTV content is delivered directly from your property’s headend system to your guest rooms through your LAN data or CAT 5 / CAT 6 cables.

Will I need set-top boxes for each guest room television?

 No. Because it is an internet-based system, no set-top boxes or special cards are required.

 Does IPTV work with our High Definition TV’s?

 Yes. Your High Definition (HD) TV signal will be successfully delivered over your property’s cable network from the headend system.
