What resolution can I get with IPTV?
November 28, 2017 04:03PM
I have heard and read different things so I thought I would ask here.

I want to make sure what I enjoy watching comes in HD and I am not going to be stuck on standard definition for new programming. I watch a lot of shows as does my family so quality is important to us. Does anyone know what resolution IPTV comes in and how to ensure I get HD quality viewing?

Streaming services use adaptive bitrate (ABR) to help ensure the best possible viewer experience with limited buffering and general interruptions to the stream.This means switching between bitrates whilst streaming, such 720p to 1080p. Typically it works rather well, Netflix and YouTube personally have always performed really well for me. But obviously when it comes to streaming there's always more than one factor to consider for smooth sailing. A weak or choppy internet connection is a very common issue, but then you should also consider device compatibility and possibly amount of internet traffic or maybe they type codec/streaming format used (also tied to compatibility).

No, no I understand that part. I just want to know what the resolution capabilities are in general. I don't want to be stuck in standard definition is all, specially not on new shows. Like is 1080p the standard for IPTV? Do any stream in 4K? ect. ect.
