Internet Protocol TeleVision (IPTV) provides multimedia services such as television, video, audio, text, graphics and data through IP based networks. Present IPTV system fails to establish QoS due to packet loss, server congestion and limited bandwidth. To overcome these drawbacks an implementation of IPTV is presented here using MPLS in 3GPP LTE release 8 networks. This implementation will provide multicast capability and FEC along with retransmission to minimize packet loss. Deploying IPTV in LTE makes LTE capable of transmitting voice, data and audio/video which will ensure convergence.
