This paper proposes a system for measuring the quality of the services received by the subscriber in a network environment providing IPTV services, and a method of measuring quality using this system. According to the proposed method, the quality measurement device is connected to the front end of the set-top box (STB) of the IPTV service subscriber. The improved performance of the IPTV services was evaluated by analyzing the actually transmitted IPTV data, estimating the quality of experience (QoE) of the videos, and deducing the quality measurements.
