Editors' Review

+

While we love the idea of free TV (who doesn't?), it never seems to be quite what we hoped. FreeZ Online TV is no exception. The channel selection is unimpressive and user guidance is nonexistent.

The most confusing things about the program are the links that appear on the initial screen when the program is opened. We mistakenly believed they might provide more guidance for the program but instead directed us to two different sites promising free online TV. Both require additional downloads, and weren't related to FreeZ Online TV.

That said, once we explored those two false leads, the program itself proved fairly easy to operate, although disappointing in its outcomes. A standard viewing screen sits next to a file tree with 16 main categories, including News, Entertainment, and Weather. Within each category are at least a half dozen channel choices, but many are not in English. Simply click one and it begins playing. The typical media controls to stop, start, pause, etc., become visible at the bottom of the screen as the content buffers. What you won't find are any guides to the channels, which seem randomly selected from various countries around the world. All you get are the call letters (like WSTV) or largely unrecognizable names like NOS Journaal. We also found that many of the listed channels didn't play at all. There are no user settings, so you can't delete or add your own channels, and no Help file or other user guidance is available.

During installation, a box is pre-checked that will add the FreeZ Online TV Toolbar, so be sure to uncheck this if you don't want this little extra. Or, better yet, skip the download altogether and avoid not only the toolbar but this unimpressive program as well.

"Gets good reception. Doesn't receive many US channels."

October 29, 2009  |  By figments4me

 |  Version: FreeZ Online TV 1.20

Pros

The channels that FreeZ Online TV receives come in very clear.

Cons

Not enough US channels come in and the few it does get do not provide enough variety. There's no way of marking your favorites so you can avoid foreign language channels when searching for programming.

Summary

It's not a bad product given the fact that it's free, but could use more US broadcasting variety. Had difficulty finding movies or any entertainment in English language. It does bring in the news and many channels Worldwide.
