Editors' review

Readon Free TV and Radio Player is a basic program that gives users access to a large number of international television and radio stations. It's nothing fancy, but it does contain links to a staggering amount of content.

The program's interface is simple, with its content types--TV, radio, movies on demand, and live sports--arranged in four tabs. TV and radio stations are organized alphabetically by country and genre, and drop-down menus allow users to filter results. Users simply click on the content that they want to access, and it plays either within the player itself or in the VLC player, which must be downloaded separately. The online Help file is fairly well-done, although we wished that it opened in the user's default browser and not Internet Explorer. Readon Free TV and Radio Player is a pretty basic program, but it does have a few extra features that make it stand out among similar programs. Readon provides access to quite a bit of adult content, but it provides a password-protected filter for users who want to disallow access to it. Perhaps the program's most important feature is that it allows users to record content using VLC. This didn't work for every channel we tried, but it did for quite a few of them. We also appreciated the fact that the program contains a minimum of nonfunctioning links, something that's been a problem in similar programs we've seen.

Readon Free TV and Radio Player is free. It comes as a ZIP file and installs desktop icons without asking, but it uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Hopeless in the UK"

    February 05, 2014   |   By steveflett

    Version: Readon TV Movie Radio Player 7.6

    Pros

    Not many apart from clean uninstall. The review hype was better than the actual abilities of the program.

    Cons

    After reading the review on CNET for this piece of Software and reading about how well it installed, its simplicity of use and the ability to watch a vast selection of TV on it, I was fairly ecited when I downloaded it and my expectations were quite high.
    What a disappointment I had. I do agree that it installs and uninstalls cleanly which is about the best thing I can say about it. In the United Kingdom a vast majority of the channels are unwatchable. They are either blocked by the ISP or just blocked from inside the program. I couldn't even get it to play the United Kingdom channels without problems.
    I think perhaps this program would work better without the ISP restrictions or if installed in another country but as for working in the United Kingdom, it just doesn't. If you live in the UK, don't bother. The rest of the world, I have no idea!

    Summary

    If you are using this program from inside the United Kingdom I fear you are going to be disappointed however for use in other countries it may work better.
