There is no doubt that IPTV will gain popularity. Increasing user demand and improved networks will support this growth. Television will increasingly move away from broadly defined channels and rigid schedules to move towards more targeted, à la carte, à la carte programming.

IPTV could take off in exactly the same way as broadband Internet in the early 2000s: back then, as people used the Internet, they felt embarrassed by the limits of dial-up connectivity, demanding a high better quality flow.

Major media providers plan to offer new streaming services to compete with Netflix, Amazon Prime and other streaming heavyweights. And more traditional TV providers allow time-delayed media through their apps. Even cable companies allow their subscribers to watch from their phones.

And now that people can create their own channels to easily distribute their content, the number and variety of IPTV options will increase rapidly. Viewers will no longer be limited to what broadcasters share; they can go to each other to see everything, from fitness videos to movies for a specific audience.

Another aspect of things: many services appear which allow users to create their own video on demand and live broadcast services. In this way, people can share their skills, advice and passions with anyone else in the world.
