For subjective measurement of video quality, various standard methods are suggested. However, those are based on the video watching for a short time, around 10 seconds, under the conditions that the original standard video exists. In the IPTV watching conditions, people watch videos for a long time, so that the 10-second measurement is inadequate in real life. This paper analyzes the effect of the assessment cycle on Mean Opinion Score (MOS) and proposes the method of selecting an appropriate assessment cycle for subjective video quality assessment of IPTV. In addition, it measures the real-time video quality of local commercial broadcasting services by applying assessment types and analyzes the measurements.
