Um, not exactly.. It's true that "TV over Internet" is IPTV but IPTV isn't necessarily "TV over Internet".

Products like Akimbo, ITVN, TVU, ZIM, JUMP-TV and a host of others are, indeed IPTV "TV over Internet".

But IPTV from a Canadian telco -- including MTS, Bell, Aliant, Sasktel and Telus -- delivers (or will deliver) TV using IP over a dedicated private network. Note this is the same underlying technology as the Internet but it is NOT the Internet. Internet viruses, for example, won't have access to IPTV from a Telco simply because the "real" Internet isn't connected to this version of IPTV.
