Technology advancements in TV services have brought about some exciting developments – Internet Protocol (IP) technology and broadband – which have created an emerging market called IPTV, or Internet Protocol Television.
MDA encourages the deployment of new media services and has developed a business friendly and technology neutral licence framework to facilitate the introduction of such new media services and bring the best experience to Singaporeans.
IPTV covers the transmission of television programming – either full scheduled channels and/or Video-on-Demand content – to households via a broadband connection using Internet protocol. Using the IPTV network, service providers can also offer rich interactivity and services such as television commerce, Voice-over-IP, video conferencing and gaming.
All media service operators who wish to offer any IPTV services or any form of subscription TV services, in or from Singapore, would need to obtain a licence from MDA.
