IPTV technology is still faced with such concerns in its quality of service as channel switch delay. One way among many that are devised to reduce this delay is multi-channel synchronous delivery. However, the bandwidth efficiency of this method is low. We propose a finite duration method in this paper and build up mathematical models to describe user behaviors like channel surfing to evaluate the performance of channel switch delay. We find through analysis and simulation that our method is… CONTINUE READING
