Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for Online TV Player
When you are on a journey or you need to temporarily live among foreigners, there are a few things you can do to feel at home. One of them is to watch your favorite TV shows and see the familiar faces of your preferred actors, as if you were home. Online TV Player lets you access over 850 free Internet TV and over 1500 free online radio stations on your personal computer.
Basically, Online TV Player allows you to watch videos on your personal computer as you would by searching various specialized websites. The difference is that you do not have to deal with the disadvantages of online multimedia (pages that slowly load, various "must-see" commercials, pop-up ads etc).
After a fairly quick installation, you can view the main window with its various options. From the left-side list you can select radios or TV channels from various countries, double click on them, then sit back and enjoy. The Filter section lets you select transmission mode (via all bandwidth, broadband or modem), libraries (online TV, online radio, or favorites), and the country you wish to receive signal from.
Depending on the strength of your Internet connection, you might encounter difficulties when it comes to connecting to the channel you choose, but you simply need to keep trying and you might succeed. Also, keep in mind that you need to have Windows Media Player and RealPlayer to be able to play some of the streams.
You can access the Options window to set up skins and change the software language. There is a search engine you can use to look for certain TV channels, radios, or configured favorites, while the Update section grants you access to the latest updates (such as language packs).
Inevitably you will find channels that do not work but all in all, Online TV Player can be used by anyone who desires more channels and radio stations.
