Every home connected to the Internet can receive, in addition to innumerable information offers, television programs thanks to the Android TV Box. It can compose its programming itself by drawing on the SSR’s broadcast pool available via the national Play SSR player and in streaming offers from various other providers (country-specific restrictions due to geoblocking). Everyone is free to watch videos and movies from different providers – anywhere and anytime – on a TV connected to the Internet, a computer, a tablet or a smartphone.
All the terms used to name television via the Internet are in fact one and the same reality: the digital transmission of television programs and cinema films via a digital data network. This transmission takes place through the technologies underlying the Internet. Providers deposit on streaming servers videos that can be viewed by users live, offline or on demand.
TV portals broadcast programs on different platforms. You can view more than many channels in your living room or on your mobile devices in a variety of sound and image qualities depending on the subscribed subscription – which can be free or payable monthly.
Whether you’re talking about streaming, Internet TV or Web TV, the service is the same: you have access to TV shows and videos broadcast and consumed over the Internet. This service is independent of your Internet provider and your device. The quality of sound and image depends on the speed of your Internet connection and the offer of your provider, including Android TV Box.
For its part, the IP TV designates the TV and radio service package which is made available to a closed circle of registered users via a network using the IP protocol. This package is also delivered via the Internet, but its reception requires a decoder. The service and the decoder are usually provided by the same provider. IPTV services are offered with a constant, predefined quality and are suitable for use on different terminals.
Internet TV is booming. It provides access to programs from far-away countries and offers many other benefits: The open access SSR offers can be viewed anywhere in the world, provided that the SSR has the broadcast rights for the country where you are staying. Internet TV can be watched on a wide range of reception devices (TV, computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.).
Mobile reception is possible via Android Television Box. Internet television provides access to media libraries already broadcast. It includes a replay function and a pause function. The SSR will implement Digital Rights Management (DRM) for broadcasting TV programs via the Internet. In doing so, it meets the requirements of rights holders and allows for new developments in the field of online media.
