Introducing Subisu IP TV in Nepal
The hot news from CAN is from the title sponsors SUBISU, who have launched the idea and a demo of “IpTV” in Nepal.
Leading provider of Cablenet and also a major ISP, SUBISU plans to launch this IPTV very soon (around April). This is a very welcoming news to all of us, since the dangles of cables for watching TV will be fargone with this concept. With this service one could easily watch any channel of their choice on the go! And don’t worry, this service will work under any internet provider: ADSL, Broadlink, WORDLink, etc i.e. you don’t have to have Internet services from SUBISU ( but you’ll need to subscribe to IPTV service, of course! )
SUBISU says, YOU WILL NOT NEED A ‘CABLE’ TO WATCH TV!
Internet Protocol television (IPTV) is a system through which television services are delivered using the Internet protocol suite over a packet-switched network such as the Internet, instead of being delivered through traditional terrestrial, satellite signal, and cable television formats.
The Internet protocol-based platform offers significant advantages, including the ability to integrate television with other IP-based services like high speed Internet access and VoIP. In a typical TV or satellite network, using broadcast video technology, all the content constantly flows downstream to each customer, and the customer switches the content at the set-top box. The customer can select from as many choices as the telecoms, cable or satellite company can stuff into the “pipe” flowing into the home. A switched IP network works differently. Content remains in the network, and only the content the customer selects is sent into the customer’s home. That frees up bandwidth, and the customer’s choice is less restricted by the size of the “pipe” into the home. This also implies that the customer’s privacy could be compromised to a greater extent than is possible with traditional TV or satellite networks.
Technical Representiveof SUBISU, Mr. Ravi gave his time to chat with Gadgetbyte today. He said,” This is a concept where anybody who has an internet connection can watch TV on their TVs, Tablets or even Smartphones. All it takes is downloading an app or setting up a Box”. According to him, this service could be availed through two ways:
- By downloading an app (On the go)
- By setting up a box (For home usage)
These apps could be downloaded from the OS marketplace and anybody could watch TV even over 3G after subscribing to SUBISU’s IPTV Service. But those who want to avail these services at home or don’t have a SMART TV could simply set-up a box and enjoy this service. These channels will be hosted by SUBISU’s local server so one shouldn’t be wary of Speed or buffer limits. He says that the channels will practically be buffer-free!
This is a pretty welcoming news, however we couldn’t get any information over the pricing! SUBISU plans to announce prices at the time of launch but says the prices will be in competitive range.
Want to see this “futuristic” idea yourself? Well, head in to CAN Infotech in the main dome and i don’t think we’ll need to navigate you to SUBISU, you’ll find them on the center stage!
