Subject: IPTV quote

I&#x2019;ve been looking through the Microsoft site to understand IPTV but won&#x2019;t bore the readers who can explore themselves but I did run across some telling comments on getstart/devplat/stb/ipstbview/osipstb/osbtm3/default.aspx

&#xF0B7; IP set-top boxes are closed devices. The user cannot install applications; the operator deploys and/or enables applications.

&#xF0B7; An IPTV service operates in a closed network environment. Web surfing is limited to the operator's own walled garden or goes through the operator's firewalls and protection mechanisms, such as virus scanners.

This IPTV stuff is no more IP than WAP was really the wireless Internet.
