Editors' review

We don't know how much we'd pay for this little Internet-media application, but luckily that's not an issue, given it's free. Digital TV 2050 Pro displays a list of Internet TV and radio channels and plays them through Microsoft Media Player. We like the straightforward interface, which organizes channels by type and country. Beyond that and the program's multimonitor support, there's not much to say about it. If you want an easy way to find TV channels on the Web, Digital TV 2050 Pro can do the job. Otherwise, you can easily get by with a browser and Microsoft Media Player.

    "This is a waste of time and hard drive space."

    November 04, 2011   |   By cyberkinesis62

    Version: Digital TV 2050 5.1

    Pros

    Its free which is still far more than its worth

    Cons

    It doesn't get any channels in the english language, except Bloomberg and I can see that without the extra software.

    Summary

    There are better internet TV options on Windows Media Center and it is free also with Windows. Don't waste time on more software that promises far more than it can deliver.

    "You've Got to be Kidding! This is a joke right?"

    March 20, 2010   |   By IT-Expert

    Version: Digital TV 2050 5.1

    Pros

    It installs without error

    Cons

    Installation is the only thing that works on this program.

    Summary

    When you run the "Player" none of the channels work. There are 1000 channels listed, but on about a dozen or so aren't greyed out. Of the "available" channels, none play any content, but even if they did play, these are the obscure channels that most people flip past late at night.

    This seems like an alpha-release software and the programmer shouldn't have even posted this.

    November 12, 2009   |   By Tardis.Companion

    Version: Digital TV 2050 5.1

    Pros

    I use Revo Uninstaller.

    Buggy. Snippy. Temperamental. Crashes. Yuck. There's WAY better out there.

    Use KitePlayer, it's free and you'll be happier.

    "This soft is a waste of time and money"

    October 15, 2008   |   By rushin2U

    Version: Digital TV 2050 5.1

    Pros

    Fast correspondence from digitalTV on upgrade to Pro version. Good features and easy to use.

    Cons

    The channel line-up is quite lengthy. Most of the channels are not available. There is NO SUPPORT from DigitalTV on this issue. I WASTED 20 bux - my loss. My knowledge - is YOUR gain. Don't repeat my mistake.

    Summary

    I hope they design some FAQ list or some sort of automated (at least) support for their users. Mainstream media (Propaganda) channels are available, but local interenational channels (as they are listed) not available. Radio - same thing.

    "Not worth the effort"

    August 11, 2008   |   By akenney06

    Version: Digital TV 2050 5.1

    Cons

    This HDTV 2050 offers all these channels to watch. When you get to the program, there are only a couple to watch and they are not worth watching. This is not even worth the effort to download it...or spend more time than is necessary to deal with it.
