How Does IPTV Work
There are three different IPTV formats. We’ll take a look at each one individually.
Video on Demand (VOD)
VOD streaming is exactly what it sounds like; you get video whenever you demand it. Movie-streaming sites are VOD providers. There’s no time limit on what you can watch (other than what the service currently has the rights for).
You tell the service what you want to watch, they send it to you via the internet, and you watch it. Simple.
Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video are popular examples of VOD services. (There are many smaller, niche services available, as well.)
