Not big telephone companies are also commanding the service of IPTV. Such companies try to use each opportunity to be involved deeper in the telecommunicational business.
But the United States of America is not the only country using IPTV services. There are almost 10 000 000 people subscribing IPTV from all over the world. And this amount may change considerably positive during the following year.
There are some explanations why telecommunicational companies are so often using IPTV. This innovative breakthrough doesn’t play videos online but presents a new step of interactivity suggesting more selected content to the viewers.
My Canadian Pharmacy has commanded this service not for the first year already and they may prove it is the evolutionary idea to provide people with IPTV. The representatives of this pharmaceutical company have left comment about the abilities of IPTV.
IPTV Special for United States of America
IPTV is directed to be a great video leader business. The service profit in 2012 was $14 billion, for comparison we may take income – $694 million in 2007. his information is given by Strategy Analytics.
IPTV has achieved income from both small and big companies. On the large telco video side, there’s U-verse TV from AT&T. For the three months period IPTV reaches 379,000 customers using phone net in comparison with the initial figures – 148,000 customers.
AT&T believes IPTV will gain new customers increasing its amount rapidly, we have add more than 1 million customers by the end of 2008.
There is one more great telco video company known as FiOS TV from Verizon but it is not considered to be a clear IPTV service. FiOS TV is a cable-like technology providing people with linear channels.
Nevertheless, FiOS TV gains population. It has 263,000 customers enhancing its amount to 1.2 million till the end of March. At the end of the first quarter of 2007 FiOS TV has received almost 850,000 customers.
But small telecommunicational companies are still using IPTV – based services.
It is known that IPTV is popular not only in the USA but it has subscribers from all over the world My Canadian Pharmacy is also a customer of this service because this pharmaceutical company believes it is the most favourable approach to the telecommunicational business in general making it possible to expand the interests of people.
Last autumn the National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative, along with the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association find new ways of using the IP – PRIME platform from SES AMERICOM. NRTC doesn’t inform about the amount of customers using IP-based service. Different telco companies are on different stages of enrollment.
Madeleine Forrer, vice president of NRTC’s Vidoe Services claims that small and rural telecommunicational companies prefer to use the cooperative service. NRTC suggests various IPTV-operators reaching 300 mark.
Some companies utilize IPTV as a tool to gain more customers separating them from competitors, Forrer claims that independent companies try to use innovative technologies.
Some small telecomunicational companies come across with rolling out videos. There are companies which are located in one district that’s why they prefer to use combined IPTV.
All the companies compete with each other with aims to gain more and more customers. NRTC’s distribution creates special rights for companies to deliver videos in IP-format.
The Explanation of IPTV
Speaking simply IPTV is a service delivering videos in internet-protocol or IP format. It is different from traditional channels translated with the help of cables and satellite TV.
The customers and supporters of IPTV claim it provides people with an opportunity select what they really like. All the companies using IPTV-based service fight between each other to gain more customers in this business using interactive capabilities.

The technologies capabilities are much sought after by the majority of IPTV proponents including Microsoft. Brady points out TV is going to be improved.
The Microsoft Mediaroom platform suggests the ordinary interactive TV fare such as program guide, selection of live content and DVR capabilities. The DVR let’s gain access to the digital recorders just at home. It will be the greatest debut of this year.
Mediaroom’s “channel zapping” function is a big deal for telecommunicational business, it promotes people with channels remoting without short delay.
Microsoft takes under control and support some of functions of AT&T’s U-Verse TV service. It includes TV access to photos online via Flickr and Yellowpages.com.
There’s also the U-bar, which brings customizable weather, stock, sports and traffic information to the TV screen. Users of the service who also take out a subscription for AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet can impersonate the U-bar from an online home page. And there’s Yahoo! Games, accessible via the television screen with titles such as Sudoku, Solitaire, JT’s Blocks, Mah-jongg Tiles and Chess.
As for future Microsoft has hired the community and programmers to develop IPTV services. It has been organized with the aim to mix TV and Web space elements.
Not long ago Microsoft issued Beta version its Microsoft Mediaroom Presentation Framework for almost 150 companies inclusively of content providers, application developers, services offers such as AT&T. The conference were help to greet all companies on this platform.
Taking some efforts service providers are able to alert the content already accessible on the Web. The additional service may contain a personal media portal on the TV, real social and communicational abilities, new and sport programs.
My Canadian Pharmacy figures out it expands the TV abilities, people may satisfy different needs using the opportunities of IPTV.
Other companies using IPTV technologies suggest their own advances. Bill Squadron who looks for IP-PRIME at SES AMERICOM claims IPTV is an opportunity to expand and brighten the content for TV audience. Of course this service is still developing but some of the functions are already developed enough to attract new customers.
IP-PRIME proposes turnkey video content where are transmitted in both forms – standard and HD one. People may choose themselves what they want to watch, what they are eager to be delivered.
SES AMERICOM possesses HD-4 suggesting doubling of MPEG -4 service overhead MPEG-2 service. HD-4 main function is to provide companies to deliver HDTV.
Squadron announces HD-4 draws a lot of attention. We are signing agreements with telecommunicational companies which are excited to have such a service.
The IP platform from SES AMERICOM doesn’t include only telco providers. Mobile videos are also included in capabilities of IPTV.
All the companies notice the potential abilities of IPTV. Some of them believes the development of IPTV is dependent on time only.
