Cable TV and IPTV
Cable TV and IPTV is distributed to you through cables and broadband. Cable TV is common if you live in an apartment or apartment building. IPTV is in short TV via internet.
Receiving TV broadcasts via cable is common if you live in an apartment building, for example. With this form of transmission, the signal is received at a central station from where and cables are run to your building and apartment. The distributor does not need a licence to broadcast cable TV, but certain types of broadcasts must be registered with us. There are distributors of all sizes, but in the current market Comhem/Tele2 is the largest distributor of cable TV.
IPTV is a form of broadcasting where the TV signal is distributed over the Internet, i.e. through your broadband. Instead of connecting your TV to the antenna socket, you connect it – or your IPTV box – to the network socket. One of the differences between IPTV and cable, is that IPTV allows you to use smart interactive services, known as play features, that you can control using your remote control. This form of broadcasting does not require a licence, but the distributor for certain types of broadcasts must be registered with us. There are a number of IPTV distributors in Sweden: Telia is one of the larger ones.
