People everywhere are increasingly dropping their cable packages. There are two key reasons for this: cost and options. The cost of cable, in many areas, has doubled in the last decade. Meanwhile, many other ways to enjoy our favorite TV shows and movies have become available. One option is an IPTV box, which uses your IP address to stream content on your television or other devices. Why is this a better choice than cable? Here are four reasons.
1. It’s entertainment on demand. IPTV boxes provide consumers with what they want more than anything – choices. With IPTV, you’re not locked into a set number of channels or group of networks. You can enjoy international television, making it a huge draw for populations who have emigrated from other countries, but would like to enjoy the shows, news, and films they adored back home.
Want to binge watch a new show? Unlike other streaming services, you are not restricted to certain seasons or episodes they’ve licensed; you can watch the whole series, when and where you want.
2. You gain access to a diverse array of media at a lower cost. It’s not just TV shows and movies – you can stream radio, podcasts, or virtually any kind of media on IPTV. Furthermore, you’re not just restricted to your TV. As long as you have the internet, you can enjoy IPTV content on any device, from laptop or smartphone to tablet and desktop.
This is a huge deal for customers who don’t get the same compatibility and ease of use from their cable packages or even other streaming methods they may have tried. And best of all, it costs very little compared to what you might pay for a receiver and service from cable and satellite companies.
3. Better connections and reception. Getting a good picture via IPTV is a lot less complicated than it can be with cable and satellite. For starters, the signals come from independent networks. It is also less easily compromised during bad weather, and losing your signal via internet isn’t as likely as it is with cable or satellite, where it can easily be knocked out by a storm.
And installation? Forget waiting around all day for a special “technician” to show up and perform some inscrutable task you’ll be charged out the nose for. Installing and setting up IPTV is easy enough for the user to do themselves.
4. Flexible subscription packages. How long does your cable or satellite company keep you locked into their service? If you’re sick of contracts that never seem to end and carry terms that don’t really serve you, it’s time to look into IPTV.
Want to try a subscription service for one month only? It’s possible with IPTV. Drop it when you decide it’s not for you, no penalties.
Some who are already on board with IPTV claim it’s the future of home entertainment. Time will tell, but a few things are for certain. When it comes to ease of use, reliability, clarity, and choices, cable has nothing on IPTV.
