iTV Media Player
iTV Media Player addresses the subscribers of the homonym online service that provides a suite of TV-related features. Amongst the set, iTV Media Player includes live television, free on-demand over one million movies, shows and programmes, over two hundred thousand channels, options to purchase content as well as free music, live radio and even games.
You can quickly and easily enjoy all of these through the means of the client application software. Moreover, iTV Media Player also delivers the option of an yearly subscription that expands the availability of the service to almost every device capable of playing video back. You can also use it on your tablet, smartphone, gaming console and other streaming devices.
iTV Media Player comes packing a rather dull graphical user interface that lacks any exquisite design and even taste sometimes, but this should not set it all the way back in its race for supremacy within its software category. Firstly, you are presented with the Channel Guide that supplies various groups of live TV or on-demand entertainment, sports, news, movies or educational content.
The ‘Free Music’ section of the application grants you access to the Pandora and Slacker services, while the ‘Free Live Radio’ area connects to iHeartRadio. Napster is the service of choice for the ‘Music by Membership’ zone. The ‘Tools & Plug-ins’ panel helps you rapidly connect to the TV, add TV service providers, test connections or set up the parental controls as well as the weather, radio, music, games and even video chat.
Overall, iTV Media Player may seem as the perfect service with an average client and on-paper it is definitely better than its alternatives, not the other way around. The apparent benefits when compared to the cable, satellite TV, Netflix or Hulu may suggest that people, in general, are not aware of the best solution to date. The truth is that iTV Media Player is overrated, by its developer, at least.
