From Global Information Technology:
The number of on-line TV channels is by several orders bigger than any satellite television package can offer, even the most expensive one. Thousands of channels - from many countries, in many languages - are available online. And it is the viewer, not the provider of satellite TV service that makes up the list of channels. The same with internet radio - not a single radio receiver will pick up such a great number of channels, as it is possible to find online, and the sound in online radio is clear, without any radiointerference. And what's more, there is no additional license fee. To get access to on-line TV and radio, as a rule, special software applications are used. Unfortunately, these applications aren't free of drawbacks: often such software works only on particular operating systems, strictly with particular types of multimedia devices, it needs to be installed, or it requires additional hardware, et cetera
In EarthMediaCenter, recently released free software product developed by Global Information Technology (UK) Limited, all these drawbacks have been eliminated. If you are going to watch online TV regularly, you can download a very small file, and an icon will appear on the desktop. Just click on it and select a TV channel or radio station.
