For start your own IPTV Server, you just need a:
– dedicated Server
– a IPTV Panel
– source streams [you need buy source streams (channels) or you need broadcast them for yourself (complicated and expensive)
Here you can find our Streaming Server, they are including the Panel already:
Which (how much) bandwidth your server needs depends on the number channel and clients:
You need know the average bandwidth of the Channels (normally SD Channels has around 1 Mbps and HD Channels has 2-3 Mbps).
Than you can calculate the needed server bandwidth, like:
Number of Channels x average Channels bandwidth [500 HD Channels x 3 Mbps = 1500 Mbps or 1,5 Gbps] >> Incoming [bandwidth] Streams
Nummer of your online Clients x average Channels bandwidth [300 x 3 Mbps = 900 Mbps or 0,9 Gbps] >> Outgoing [bandwidth] Streams
Total needed server bandwidth = Incoming [bandwidth] Streams + Outgoing [bandwidth] Streams | 1,5 Gbps + 0,9 Gbps = 2,4 Gbps.
