Re: IPTV reason to upgrade?

said by sameshtdd:

Wouldn't these speeds have to be shared with your TV service also since FiOS wants to go to an all IPTV system?

4 HDDVRS all recording 2 HD streams at the same time. That's 8 streams. 8x19Mbps=160Mbpsx64users=5.12Gbps

Seems like something they need to be prepared for.

I dont think a change to IPTV would make a difference. Theoretically, IPTV would take up less space since only one stream would be sent at a time. Just look at Uverse vs. basic cable. Instead of sending a standard broadcast signal, Uverse uses IPTV, which uses roughly 7mbps. Im not sure exactly how much space a broadcast stream takes up, but one could imagine if it were less than IPTV, Uverse would utilize it.
