Secondary distribution is an ITU term meaning use of a transmission channel for distribution of video/audio programs to users at large, for example, by an over-the-air broadcast channel or by means of a fiber or cable network.

In addition, recommendations relating to second- and third-generation IPCablecom were approved for consideration by the full ITU for standardization. These recommendations add to a suite of more than 25 recommendations that have been developed for cable and hybrid networks.

From the beginning of the work on IPCablecom, equipment based on these recommendations — such as modems, set-top boxes, signaling equipment, interactive television application platform interfaces and digital program insertion, and others — has been widely implemented in Asia, Europe, and North America.
