IPTV Arkansas is now a reality. You may have already heard of IPTV, but what is it? It is a new technology that uses your cable Internet connection to send digital television signals through the Internet and to your receiver in your home. You get the same high definition TV you have enjoyed for the past few years through the Internet, without having to pay extra for it. That is why it is called “unified” IPTV, as it combines the capabilities of cable and digital television.
IPTV provides many advantages to consumers. First of all, with this service you do not need any extra cable or satellite dishes to receive your IPTV signals. All you need is your broadband Internet connection, which you usually get at your house or at your place of business. So even if you do not have any extra equipment, you can still enjoy high-definition TV.
What is the best way to enjoy IPTV? There are two ways to view IPTV: through a dedicated IPTV box that comes with your IPTV service or through an IPTV package, such as AT&T U-verse or DirecTV. With an IPTV package, you will receive a digital TV receiver with a built-in digital video recorder (DVR), a high-definition TV tuner box, a PC based remote control and a digital TV receiver box. All of these devices can be found at your local electronics store.
If you want to start enjoying IPTV immediately, you can purchase an IPTV Ready Dish at any electronics retailer. The dish should come with a software CD that enables your TV to recognize its signals and switch from one channel to another. This is done automatically when the IPTV signal arrives. After you have configured your IPTV service, you can optimize your receiver’s settings to increase the number of premium channels or to reduce the number of non-premium channels.
Another option for those who live in areas where cable television is not available is to use an IPTV gateway. An IPTV gateway is a special device that connects to your existing cable or satellite television and creates an “instant” link between the two systems. You can watch hundreds of channels on an IPTV gateway as compared to just a single channel on traditional cable. If you are looking for a new television or home entertainment system, consider an IPTV system with an IPTV gateway.
Many cable television providers do not offer any special packages to connect with IPTV. However, there are some Arkansas-based companies that have specially implemented IPTV so you can get all the benefits of digital television, including HD channels and premium channels, at a great price. For example, digital television provider Arkansas Communications Network offers a deal called “AVN bundles,” which includes both digital television and internet service. (Internet service is provided at no additional cost.) Similarly, Eastman Cable is offering an “Anytime Pay-Per-View” feature for an additional charge.
