Also some techniques that have been developed to mitigate the delay in the zapping are listed. This paper proposes developing a time series model to model and predicts the behavior of the rating in the channels with more audience on an IPTV platform. The validation of the proposed model is performed from real data of the rating provided by telecommunications.
