MPEG-2 Stream Format, specified as part of the MPEG-2 Standard in ITU-T H.222.0. Used for transport channels, e.g. when streaming MPEG-2 content over networks.

Networks can be e.g. computer networks, DVB-C Cable Networks DVB-S Satellite Networks or DVB-T Networks.

The MPEG-2 Transport Stream Format specifies how to encapsulate MPEG-2 Elementary Stream Packets, the MPEG-2 Multiplexer procedure, and how to add additional information like PSI Tables and Sync Information.

Normally, in DVB-T (and others?) a transport stream contains more than one program stream and therefore more than one program.
