Program streams are used on DVD-Video discs and HD DVD video discs, but with some restrictions and extensions.
VOB is based on the MPEG program stream format, but with additional limitations and specifications in the private streams.

MPEG-1

MPEG-1 Part 2MPGMPEG1
The PS format is specified in MPEG-1 Part 1 (ISO/IEC 11172-1) and MPEG-2 Part 1, Systems (ISO/IEC standard 13818-1 /ITU-T H.222.0 ).
This structure was later named an MPEG program stream: "The MPEG-1 Systems design is essentially identical to the MPEG-2 Program Stream structure."

Packetized elementary stream

PES
Program streams are created by combining one or more Packetized Elementary Streams (PES), which have a common time base, into a single stream.
Packetized Elementary Stream (PES) is a specification in the MPEG-2 Part 1 (Systems) (ISO/IEC 13818-1) and ITU-T H.222.0 that defines carrying of elementary streams (usually the output of an audio or video encoder) in packets within MPEG program streams and MPEG transport streams.

MPEG transport stream

TStransport streamMPEG-TS
It is designed for reasonably reliable media such as disks, in contrast to MPEG transport stream which is for data transmission in which loss of data is likely.
Transport streams differ from the similarly-named MPEG program stream in several important ways: program streams are designed for reasonably reliable media, such as discs (like DVDs), while transport streams are designed for less reliable transmission, namely terrestrial or satellite broadcast.
