Another big difference for U-verse TV compared to FiOS and digital cable is that it exclusively uses IPTV technology (see later section) and AVC video coding. More recently, Google introduced Google TV, which is a FTTP service similar to Verizon’s FiOS, but offering even higher connectivity speeds for its Internet connectivity service. At this writing, Google TV is available only in few selected markets around the United States. Digital Subscriber Line Telcos can also deliver limited television services over digital subscriber lines (DSL), which use copper wire rather than optical fiber for the connection from the telco headend to the customer’s premises.

Each individual DAB transmission also requires much more spectrum because it contains multiple program services (typically 6 to 10, depending on quality and the amount of data carried). This makes it impractical for use by the typical local radio station, so it is generally implemented with the cooperation of several broadcasters, or by a third-party aggregator that acts as a transmission service operator for broadcasters. DAB is most often transmitted using spectrum in the VHF band, which in some countries is becoming available as analog television is phased out.

It is most often used to describe delivery of television programming by a telephone company (telco) to consumers using IP protocol over a private data network. As noted above, AT&T’s U-Verse service is a national offering using IPTV, but other operators (typically local or regional telcos) also offer IPTV service. Like most other digital TV systems, IPTV needs a set-top box to convert it into standard video signals that can be fed to a regular television. IPTV can be used to deliver either continuous streams of content or video on demand, and it can also be used for non-real-time download to a storage device.
