MPEG-2 TS

(MPEG-2 Transport Stream) A container format for broadcasting MPEG-2 video via terrestrial and satellite networks. The North American digital TV standard (ATSC) uses MPEG-2 TS, which provides a more robust system for transmission than MPEG content pressed onto optical media. Apple's HTTL Live Streaming (HLS) employs this format and breaks up the file into thousands of smaller ones for multiple bit rate streaming. See ATSC, streaming protocols and fragmented MP4.
