Most P2PTV systems select a neighbor peer in an overlay network using RTT or a random method without considering the underlying network. Streaming traffic is shared over a network without localization awareness, which is a serious problem for Internet Service Providers. In this paper, we present a novel scheme to achieve P2PTV traffic localization by inserting delay into P2P streaming packets, so that the length of the inserted delay depends on the AS hop distance between a peer and its neighbor peer. Experiments conducted on a real network show that our proposed scheme can perform efficient traffic localization.
