I am doing a market research on IPTV implementation for a private company. The company intends to get into the IPTV Business ( STB+satellite dish+ Internet). The company is currently into the manufacturing of various types of Telecom connectors and this will be a kind of horizontal diversification.

I have a few questions :-

1) Are the STBs for delivering IPTV different from the conventional DTH/ pay TV STBs?
2) Is Analog TV (CRT) capable enough to broadcast via IPTV?
3) How can IPTV be so cheap in comparison to DTH/ pay TV? I mean, won't your internet bill reach sky high because of constant streaming of HD media?
