In this paper, we present an effective IPTV channel control algorithm that guarantees a seamless channel change and provides a fast data communication service simultaneously via controlling the usage levels of uplink and downlink resources over DOCSIS CATV networks. The proposed algorithm treats the number of adjacent channels and the assigned grant interval as control variables to reduce the network delay part of channel zapping time and improve the quality-of-service of the uplink and downlink. Finally, the experimental results are provided to show the performance of the proposed algorithm.
