Chromaniac. Although you are correct technically, there are providers that are truly on the internet such as SlingTv International which is a US Based setup. They lock down to the US region of IP's for which there is a workable solution. The question here is that has anyone tried hooking up a regular internet for an activated Airtel IPTV and seen if the connection goes through. I doubt it would as India has fair usage on most of the nets and hence Airtel wouldn't sell a product that would go over the regular internet vs. the way we have it in the US.Nope. Elaborate answer. IPTV is not Internet TV. It does not use or work over the internet. It is Internet Protocol Television. Which means it uses a similar technology to transfer the data needed for television transmission. So it requires a connection from the service provider which means it can only work where the services are available officially.
