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.

"pretty good,, will keep for a while"

February 20, 2011  |  By tedtks

 |  Version: Readon TV Movie Radio Player 7.0

Pros

lots of channels - wish the chan. list was sortable, an line deletable.

Cons

first off - it wanted to dnld 7.2 - which would not run so had to uninstall and re-load 7.0
its too easy to end up with a lot of tabs running.
extra overlay screens of varying size.

Summary

you need one of their ad ons for some channels VLB at 34mb takes
a while - plus the adobe flash was another 7 min dnld.
it takes a while to get used to things and there are a few buttons it could use to be more friendly.
still a work in progress and I have good hopes for it.

"All things considered, surprisingly good"

January 28, 2011  |  By Sherlockhouse

 |  Version: Readon TV Movie Radio Player 7.0

Pros

Regular channel undates, easy to install / uninstall, plenty of LIVE worldwide sports channels to pick fom via the the "Live Sports" tab. Informative online Help page for novice users to read up on "System Requirements".

Cons

Ad supported ... after a while those program start-up ads can become annoying. But who am I to complain - it's Freeware. All too easy access to adult content (porn) channels.

Summary

This Readon TV Movie Radio Player 7.0 edition has since been replaced by the 7.2.0.0 edition. However, once up and running, the program will prompt the user to upgrade to the newer version.

Some XP users might have to make a little online visit to their nearest Microsoft update site in order to download a dot.NET Framework 3.5 fix ... that is if they haven't already done so. While Vista and Window 7 users needn't bother, being that they should already have at least, a dot.NET Framework 2.0 installed by default.

If deemed necessary, the adult content channels and R rated movies can be removed from the menus by using the password blocking feature in the File / Settings menu.

Due to the limited bandwidth used, I find some of the P2P Sopcast and TVU channels viewed via the player's inbuilt screen can be of poor picture quality. But on the other hand, some of them who broadcast at in excess of 500 Kbps are quite acceptable.

The feature I'm quite taken with is the addition of the Readon Browser / Movie Player that opens up in a separate window when I click on a suitable channel. The full screen definition is excellent even without any control over the corresponding brightness / darkness of what I'm watching. However, buffering can occasionally be a pain depending on how many servers are involved between the source and the destination.

If it's sports and old Hollywood black and white movies that you are into then you going to be spoilt for choice. Though, understandably, channels showing more up-to-date English speaking movies are very thin on the ground. But there are a few of them out there (usually broadcasting out of US) unfortunately, they tend not to stay under one name too long before they get taken down. However, they do have a habit of popping up again under another name a week or two later. It's just a case of keeping an eye open for any apparently new channels being hosted out of the US that don't have TV or Old in title showing up on the Readon Player movie menu.

"Some good US spots. Porn, old newscasts&inactive sites."

November 20, 2010  |  By loveglenn2003

 |  Version: Readon TV Movie Radio Player 7.0

Pros

The viewer works well. It installs cleanly with no problems noted. The selection of Porn is extensive, as are the "Good Old Days" programs for the "Wholesome" family viewer. US traffic/weather/bar cams&newscasts fill most of the local redirects.

Cons

US traffic/weather/bar cams&newscasts fill most of the local redirects.The broadcast/movie sites are not available or seldom updated.The viewer is loaded with Porn&it is available with only a birth date.You can see enough to bore yourself to sleep.

Summary

Some good US and worldwide spots. The viewer works well. It installs and uninstalls cleanly with no problems noted. The selection of Porn is extensive, as are the "Good Old Days" programs for the "Wholesome" family viewer. US traffic cams, weather cams, and bar cams, along with Local Government, fill most of the local redirects. The US broadcast TV/movie sites are often not available and many seem to need updating. Parents Be Aware!! This viewer is loaded with Porn. It and all other "Adult Material", broadcast or movie, is available with only the input of an appropriate Date of Birth!!!
