Differences between IP TV vs Digital TV Box

In this day and age, all our devices have been developing at a rapid pace. The mobile phone, which once had keypads, is now a glass screen. The laptops are getting smaller, faster, and more powerful. Watches have come with the latest features, Operating Systems and more. In a world where change has become the only constant, the humble TV has also changed itself from its rather boxy past.
