Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) is rapidly being deployed as a compliment service to existing distribution technologies.

Why IPTV? traces the changes in Internet Protocol Television since the mid-1990s and examines what IPTV means today.

It looks at the current trends in the consumer electronics industry as well as the network industry, and describes how the new technology can enhance and extend the existing business models in the TV industry, particularly in advertising; and also how it creates new possibilities, for instance, through personalization.
