What is TS Transport Stream Video? TS Format Wiki

Transport stream (TS) is a standard format specified in MPEG-2 for the transmission and storage of audio, video and data, and commonly used in broadcast systems such as DVB and ATSC. It is also a video stream file format for storing video on DVDs. Transport stream specifies a container format encapsulating packetized streams, with error correction and stream synchronization features for maintaining transmission integrity when the signal is degraded.

The connection of Transport Stream to Program Stream is as follows. Firstly, PS is designed for reasonably reliable media, such as disks (like DVDs), while TS is designed for less reliable transmission, namely broadcast. Further, Transport Stream transmissions may carry multiple Program Streams.
