TVUPlayer 2.5.3 Build 2025 Beta 1 / 2.5.0 Build 1851

A free program that enables viewers to watch high quality live Television programs around the world
TVUPlayer claims to erase all misconceptions regarding online TV, as it provides users the ability to watch high quality live television from all over the world, promising to offer a seamless experience.

Although it's a great idea to let people watch their favorite TV shows right on their computers, TVUPlayer lacks the interface that could make the whole thing a lot better. You cannot resize the columns, you cannot resize the whole main window and the only thing you can actually do is to move it around.

Plus, even if the channel list seems to be quite rich, it's not. Developers have included tons of Asian stations which could only be useful for only a bunch of users, while English channels are just a few.

While we tried to give it a run, TVUPlayer worked like a charm, but we must warn you that you need a fast Internet connection to be sure you'll be able to connect to each station. Otherwise, you may experience huge loading times and big delays.

There is no help file and that is surely a serious drawback for beginners who may experience problems while trying to use the application, because the only way to solve them is to search the web for more information.

The memory and CPU footprint is just minimal, so the software tool works on both newer and older machines.

Overall, TVUPlayer is a great idea, but there's clearly a lot of work to be done here. A better interface, as well as more channels and a lot more settings would be great for users looking to customize the application a little bit.
