While free-to-air satellite and Freeview|HD is the best way to receive quality TV programmes and movies, more and more of the same TV programmes and movies are becoming available on the internet as IPTV (internet protocol television).
Topfield has already released an IPTV receiver, the Topfield IP5500 and plan to in the furutre release a satellite / DTT / IPTV receiver with a built-in PVR. None of the IPTV receivers are yet available in New Zealand. Telecom NZ is currently trialing IPTV and so New Zealand may soon have more IPTV available to view.
