Poseidon - Live RTV Player
Poseidon - Live RTV Player is a freeware Windows tool designed to let you watch online television with ease.
Although it’s not quite a professional-looking interface, the app’s design makes everything quite a breeze, with channels listed right in the main window.
In fact, that’s also one of the good things about the program: it displays all available channels in a dedicated panel in the main window. The available streams are sorted by country, so you can find the one you want with no fuss.
On the other hand, Poseidon - Live RTV Player doesn’t comprise a search utility to look for a desired station and doesn’t allow users to save their favorites channels for later playing.
Besides the obvious online TV playing abilities, the program boasts a bunch of utilities aimed at various Windows applications, such as Outlook Express, Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player. You can for disable Hotmail or Windows Messenger in Outlook Express, or clear typed URLs, cookies and history in Internet Explorer.
Poseidon - Live RTV Player is far from being a resource hog, but the problem is that the application sometimes fails to load the channel list on Windows 7. The same issue appeared on both 32- and 64-bit versions with a stable Internet connection and administrator privileges.
Still, it remains a very friendly application when it comes to resource usage, running smoothly on all Windows versions without hampering system performance. It’s a good app for beginners, but further improvements are clearly needed.
