What is Superbox?
Superbox is an android based IPTV box for home streaming entertainment. SuperBox connects to your home internet and gives you faster access to watch Live TV, Movies, TV Series. It is that simple but now comes the second question.
What is an IPTV?
IPTV simply refers to Internet-based Protocol Television. Here the internet is used to deliver TV programs & Videos that are either live or on-demand. IPTV is a system where digital television service is delivered to the subscriber through Internet protocol technology via the medium of broadband or internet connection. Unlike downloaded media, IPTV offers the ability to stream the source media continuously. As a result, the client media player (SuperBox S2 Pro) can begin playing the content (such as a TV channel, Movies, TV Series) almost immediately.
To understand how IPTV is different from traditional TV, let’s compare traditional mode of viewing TV with IPTV
Cable and satellite both function by enabling users to “tune in” to specific channels within that signal and the fundamental difference is that cable is via a wired connection whereas satellite is wireless (until it reaches your house, anyway). The issue with cable or satellite tv is that you are only able to watch what's being broadcasted.
IPTV uses Internet protocol (IP) based network to deliver TV channels, videos to SuperBox S2 Pro. The consumer requests and receives TV Shows and Video content is delivered to the viewer via Internet Protocol (IP) based networks instead of cable or satellite. Unlike cable or satellite where content is broadcast in real time, on a transmit and forget the model, IPTV has the ability to store the programming on servers at transmitting end, allowing SuperBox S2 Pro users to request the content over the Internet at any time.
Due to the attractive features and future-proof technology, SuperBox has reached a point where it is now a very attractive alternative to cable or digital broadcast satellite, so it’s worth examining in more detail.
How does IPTV work?
The working principle of IPTV is simple. IPTV is something like browsing the internet than traditional channel surfing. It only uses IP (Internet Protocol), a transport protocol which is a delivery mechanism to deliver the video data to the SuperBox viewers. When the S2 Pro viewer clicks on any TV program or requests the video through their IPTV streaming Box, video from different sources (servers) is divided into data packets and sent over the internet. Video servers transmit programs through fiber-optic cable to existing household via your home internet connection and requests are sent out and shows are sent back to S2 pro.
SuperBox S2 Pro is the piece of endpoint equipment that decodes and decrypts TV and VOD streams for display on your TV screen. This tv box is connected to the viewer's internet connection (router) and uses the internet to deliver the video and TV content to the viewer.
