IPTV Features

IPTV offers many advanced features.


The first thing you will notice is an enhanced guide. The new guide will allow you to use the 'Catchup' feature on some channels to watch a show that has already aired. A second feature of the enhanced guide is the 'Restart' feature which allows you to restart a show that is already in progress, from the beginning.


Just like other streaming services, you can create multiple users. Each unique user will be offered programming suggestions based on their viewing history.


For $4.99 a month you can subscribe to a network DVR service. This allows you to record up to 120 hours of programming that will be stored for 30 days. You can then watch these programs when you want on any IPTV device in the home.
