Zattoo is a software application designed specifically for helping you watch your favorite TV channels directly from your computer.
Prior configuration settings
In order to use the application you need to create an account. The program is available only for several countries, such as Germany, Switzerland, Spain, France, Luxembourg, USA and UK.
Each country comes its own channel list, and you should take into consideration that some features are available only for some of the countries listed above.
For example, in Switzerland Zattoo users can view an entire TV schedule and record their TV shows. For those users that do not find themselves on the aforementioned list with available countries they can install a VPN service and bypass geographical restrictions (CyberGhost VPN).
The clean feature lineup makes it easier for you to navigate throughout the program’s features. The tool reveals a list with available TV channels on the left side of the main window, while the right area is reserved for a live preview of the TV shows and movies.
Additionally, you can make the utility remain on top of other programs, edit account info and check out the notification panel.
Favorite channels, filters and searches
Zattoo gives you the possibility to quickly connect to the desired channel and alter the volume, create a list with your favorite channels, perform search operations, as well as filter the channels by user-defined words or categories (e.g. Sport, Comedy, Crime, Magazine, Documentary, Drama, Cooking, News, Romance).
Built-in program guide
The best part about this utility is that it allows you to check out an electronic TV guide which offers details about the TV shows and movies, hour, and channels.
Basically, you get access to an electronic program guide that reveals scheduling data for the current and upcoming television programs on available channels.
What’s more, you can sort the information pretty easily thanks to the built-in calendar, check out the programs that are running at the current moment, as well as filter the information by hour.
All in all, Zattoo comes with a decent feature pack for helping you watch online TV shows, and is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
