Online TV Player

CNET Editors' review

The Online TV Player is a program that accesses online TV and radio from around the world and streams it on your computer.

This program has a very simple layout and there really isn't much to it. You simply go through the lists of online TV and radio from whichever country you want, and select one to watch. It does require you to have certain additional programs like RealPlayer and Windows Media Player in order to play a number of the TV channels. We didn't have RealPlayer, but even the channels that did not require this would not open and didn't start streaming for us. There were just too many errors for this to be a worthwhile download. When we went to the Help page to see if we could fix the problem, we were met with poorly written English and still no answer to why none of the channels worked. No matter the time zone or the numbers of times we tried, an error always popped up. This was the latest update, we were connected to the Internet, and we had the latest of everything except RealPlayer, so it should have worked at least for some channels. Combine that with the overall look of the program and we unfortunately feel like we wasted time downloading this.

The download process, while not worth it, was really quick and simple. Once the installation process is over, you have the option of immediately launching the program and its Web site, which is a convenient step.

    "Four-Star Rating"

    December 10, 2011  |   By bishopdp3766

    Version: Online TV Player 4.93

    Pros

    On Line TV offers a great opportunity to those who can afford the "add on's"...

    Cons

    For now, the requirement to purchase additional software (add on's) to watch some Online TV programming is a big turn-off. I Can't afford it in today's economy!

    Summary

    It's regrettable, but I will most likely delete Online TV Player from my P.C... because I cannot afford the "add on's".

    Summary

    Things Your Managed IT Services
    Firewall Protection
    Like its namesake in building construction, a software or dedicated appliance firewall secures against internal and external attacks. It also blocks Internet access to malicious Trojan programs, safeguards your personal data against theft, and delivers end-point security for computers and networks.
    Unified Threat Management
    A unified threat management system is a network's firewall that utilizes many features in one box. Along with firewall capabilities, it may include e-mail spam filtering, antivirus capabilities, intrusion detection and prevention, and content filtering from the Web.
    E-mail Filtering
    There are a number of tricks and tactics conjured up every day when it comes to breaking the security of a network through e-mail. Whether it's spam, a link with a virus attached, or spyware, countless businesses are affected with a click of the mouse.
    Data Management
    It can be the most important part of your business but is often the most overlooked. Although data management is a broad field of study, it's most formally known as the process of managing data as a resource that is valuable to an organization or business.
    Service Management
    Working with products and dealing with customer information can be daunting, even more so if your business is growing. If you're thinking about streamlining your services, a service management software system will help automate things into a simple workflow.

    Summary

    This site is a complete scam! They have no support, no contact number! You can only contact them via email. They don't respond to emails. I had sent a support request to them on Monday 20-Sep and still waiting for a response. I had originally downloaded the free version. No channels! Then purchased the professional version and again no channels! I then contacted their billing company on the Tues 21-Sep 'Avangate' for details. They also don't have a contact number? Very odd! This is a scam! They said all they can do is send an email to their support and wait for a response. Today is Friday Still waiting!! Now trying to get my money back! I had to contact mastercard for an immediate refund as it wasnt forthcoming from Avangate! Don't touch this company! Bewarned...
