Time travel using Time Shifted TV

The TSTV feature provides flexibility for subscriber to watch TV at any time. The principle of TSTV is that the IPTV system has ability to store live TV program in the media server at Headend, similar to personal PVR. So the PEO TV stores live TV media content at network headend, instead of at the subscriber end of the network which is also referred to as n-PVR.

Channels are stored as time slots based on the program duration. These time slots are stored and presented to the user on the EPG in a well organized and in a user friendly manner. Such stored programs can be accessed through the TSTV menu. It provides the TV guide of the TV channel program line-up. While watching the program customers can use trick play (pause, rewind and forward). When playing VOD or TSTV, system supports Trick play at different speeds. The speed can be 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x and 32x. The time shift facility is provided only for certain selected channels.

Trick play is an amazing function unique to PEO TV. Trick play brings lot of value addition to the PEO system none other competitor can provide. PEO has unique way of treating its customers. Try trick play you will understand the difference.
