The current evolution of technology in the recent past, television is geared to take a different turn from its traditional form of distribution which has been labeled ‘analogue’ to digital transmission via wireless connection. The evolution of broadband networks has enabled the deployment to IPTV viable. For the IPTV to be successfully implemented there must be a high capacity and excellent performance without packet loss and delays. Bandwidth is a key constraint in video distribution of IPTV (both live TV and video on demand) technologies; therefore an increase bandwidth utilization mechanism should be put in place. This research paper addresses key aspects of bandwidth utilization via spectrum sharing and reuse among the key players in the industry. Sharing of spectrum entails several techniques which includes administrative, technical and market-based as noted by Philip V. D., Yvon G., Djamal, Z (2012) Time, space and geography are ways in which sharing of spectrum can be done. RF (radio frequency) spectrum is very important infrastructure for communication in wireless and its operation calls for issuance of licenses by a national monitoring whereby in most cases it’s the government.
