Net Protocol Television(IPTV) is creating a huge impact on the mainstream TV industry. That has much wider applications than just in the entertainment field.

Conventional Television systems in almost all of the hotels surrounding the world offer two major features –
Live TELEVISION SET Channels
Movies on demand
The features are restricted to the englobant cable TV technology that has been prevalent for the past 3 years. It broadcasts the TV SET media, meaning pre-scheduled programs are run irrespective of user’s individual preference on a particular channel. The provider offers some content and the user can tune to the choice of his/her channel.
So why change to IPTV? Existing analogue cable TV technology has limitations –
Low quality of TV stations
Not enough personalization for friends
No support for getting guest’s advices
Limitations of number of TV stations offered
Lack of offering convenience to guests
Zero personalization of TV services
Inefficient utilization of the audio-visual medium to create additional profits

The free flow of information gives users more choices and it has heightened the expectation levels. The IPTV technology can help Hotel operators to offer wider options of infotainment and making the services more personal for their guests.
