Editors' Review

+

We see a lot of online streaming-TV viewers, and a lot of them are more or less the same. Satellite TV Media Player is another solid entry in this category; there's not much about it that sets it apart from the competition, but it's a perfectly serviceable program.

The player's interface is attractive and intuitive, with buttons for TV, radio, movies, and video. The program lists the available content down the side of the screen alphabetically, and users can filter it by country, genre, and language. There are plenty of streams of content from actual television channels, but the majority of the content is online-only. As is always the case with programs of this kind, the quality of the content varies greatly. Hulu this is not; there are some very high-quality movies, for example, but you're also likely to see movies in English with Asian-language subtitles across the bottom. Still, there's a huge variety of content, and, unlike many of these TV viewers, most of the Satellite TV Media Player's channels actually work. We did experience a few channels that wouldn't load and seemed to cause the whole application to freeze, which was a concern, but for the most part the program worked well and was easy to use. The program's built-in Help file is brief but adequate.

Satellite TV Media Player has a one-day trial period. The program installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

"Worst than many free TV player"

May 19, 2011  |  By LeDr9

 |  Version: Satellite TV Media Player 4.5

Pros

I don't see anything good, since I've paid $49 for it.

Cons

1) Too many channels don't work or you have to go to their website.
2) The picture is as bad as those from an old bad VCR

Summary

The ironic aspect of this bad paying software, it is much worst than a free one line TV player like «Readon TV»... I am using only Readon TV from now on. Very angry for having paid for «Satellite TV Media Player» whose look and feel is obviously as oudated as a Russian Lada car.

July 07, 2010  |  By sunny00001

 |  Version: Satellite TV Media Player 4.5

Pros

It also offers the justin and premium channels and the best part is that i am also able to watch more than 1000+ Complete Movies too. They also have the separate section for the Movies and the selection of them is really Awesome.

It does not have the recording option.

Summary

Just Use it you will be able to get the benefits

Updated on Jul 7, 2010

"Powered by TVU Networks"

March 11, 2010  |  By leemajella77

 |  Version: Satellite TV Media Player 4.5

Pros

Started using this and all looked fine, plenty of channel choices. Most everything is here.

Cons

Noticed the "Powered by TVU" button in the corner of this program. I've been using TVU for years (it's free) While there seem to more choices here and better organized, not enough to pay this kind of coin for.

Summary

There are a number of other programs doing similar feeds. Only "buy" this if you feel the slicker presentation is worth the money.

"Excellent TV player, it is the best I have seen so far."

December 31, 2009  |  By maxhofffenberg

 |  Version: Satellite TV Media Player 4.5

Pros

I like the wide range of tv channels and movies available, the image quality is really good, I can watch all my favorite tv channels on my PC and also on my much larger television. This product is worth the little money I spent for it.

Cons

The player could be further improved with a more detailed description for each channel. In addition, full movies are not classified according to their genre, they are displayed in alphabetical order all together and they are more than 2,000......

Summary

I am a fan of Satellite TV Player 4.5 also because I often contact their Customer Support people (Miss Megan in particular) to ask for a particular channel, movie or radio station and they are really very friendly to me, they always manage to meet my wishes.

"Not what is promised. Not live TV in most cases. SCAM?"

December 27, 2009  |  By JtJt12944

 |  Version: Satellite TV Media Player 4.5

Pros

The interface looks promising. Looks professional (but isn't).

Cons

Most of the listings are either NOT live TV (at best) or incorrect (at worst). Recordings are in correct time to FOOL YOU into thinking they are live.

Summary

Looks to be a scam to me. Glad I didn't pay for it. Most of the listings are either NOT live TV (at best) or incorrect (at worst). For example, History channel is something from another language, not historical. Canadian news is merely recordings from either Halloween 09 or September 11, 09. Recordings are in the correct time to fool you into thinking they are live. On news channels the reports are form the Summer (I'm writing this review in December). I cannot get any of the BBC listings to work correctly. Most of the local listings are for weather broadcasts from the areas, no other programming. Any actual live programming from overseas (in languages other than English) had ads running across the bottom. I don't think the program is worth $1.75 myself. After checking online for other reviews on this and other similar programs, it appears that they are all scams. Beware.

"Much better than the last"

December 24, 2009  |  By awparran

 |  Version: Satellite TV Media Player 4.5

Pros

When I first used this product, I was only so-so impressed. This 4.5 version is much better.

Cons

When activated, it changes my monitor setting. I have an Acer notebook and port the video to my TV, good video color; can't read channel selections. Had to reboot cable modem when I close the program. Need to do more investigation.

Summary

Much better product. A few twiks here and there and it's bye-bye cable company.
