IPTV, Internet Protocol television, is a system through which television services are delivered using the Internet protocol suite over a packet-switched network such as a LAN or the Internet, instead of being delivered through traditional terrestrial, satellite signal, and cable television formats. Unlike downloaded media, IPTV offers the ability to stream the media in smaller batches, directly from the source. As a result, a client media player can begin playing the data (such as a movie) before the entire file has been transmitted. This is known as streaming media.
IPTV services may be classified into three main groups:
Live television, with or without interactivity related to the current TV show;
Time-shifted television: catch-up TV (replays a TV show that was broadcast hours or days ago), start-over TV (replays the current TV show from its beginning);
Video on demand (VOD): browse a catalog of videos, not related to TV programming.
During the Pre-Hispanic Era, Old Tagalog was written using the Kawi or the Baybayin script.
For three centuries Tagalog was written following, to some extent, the Spanish phonetic and orthographic rules.
Dr. José Rizal, initially suggested to indigenize the alphabet of the Philippine languages by replacing the letters C and Q with K. Based on Rizal's indigenization proposal, the Abakada became the alphabet for the Tagalog language.
At present, all languages of the Philippines but Spanish and Chabacano may be written using the Modern Filipino alphabet, which includes all the letters of the Abakada alphabet. These two exception shall follow the ancient rules for all the Filipino languages.
The name Tagalog comes from either the term tagá-ilog, which means 'people living along the river', or another term, tagá-alog, which means 'people living along the ford' (the prefix taga- meaning "coming from" or "native of").
In 1821, Edmund Roberts called the Tagalog, Tagalor in his memoirs about his trips to the Philippines.
