Watching TV via SAT>IP

Starting with FRITZ!OS 7, the FRITZ!Box supports the Sat-over-IP technology (SAT>IP). Some manufacturers refer to SAT>IP as "DVB over IP", "SAT to IP" or "TV>IP".

After setting up television reception in the FRITZ!Box, as a SAT>IP server the FRITZ!Box converts digital television signals into IP packets and makes them available as a stream in the home network. In the home network, televisions with SAT>IP support, for example from Panasonic and Loewe, can access the FRITZ!Box's tuners as SAT>IP clients. With a corresponding smart card, they can also play encrypted content. You just have to select the FRITZ!Box as the SAT>IP server in the television and then search for channels. The television determines which elements the stream contains, for example subtitles, EPG. No settings are necessary in the FRITZ!Box.
