Transmissions are in the UHF band using OFDM with QPSK or QAM. Video is QVGA resolution, and the number of program channels depends on the bandwidth allocated. Although, in theory, DVB-H services can be carried by a broadcast station along with DVB-T services in a single DTV channel, this has not turned out to be practical due to different reception considerations, and separate transmission networks for DVB-H services were generally implemented. Both free-to-air and subscription business models could be accommodated.

A new generation of integrated television receivers is also now available with Internet capability and, in some cases, data storage, built-in. ” In addition, where enabled by the content owner, file transfer capabilities can provide automatic, “push” download of complete programs or program segments for storing and later playback on a computer or other device, including portable players such as the Apple iPod—giving rise to the new term of podcasting. “Over the Top” (OTT) Service In contrast to the Telco TV and IPTV services described above, a number of television content providers offer on-demand, IP-based television service over the public Internet.

They distribute large numbers of television and audio program channels from a cable headend to consumers over networks of cables spanning urban and suburban areas. They do not usually cover large rural areas due to the greater distances between homes. Such services carry a subscription fee and always carry program services from all or most of the broadcast stations in the area, as well as numerous other channels. Most cable systems provide video-on-demand (VOD) and pay-per-view (PPV) services as well as regular continuous programming, and use some types of encryption or conditional access to prevent piracy and unauthorized viewing of some or all of their channels.
