    "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 7, 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.

    Cons

    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.

    "FINALLY A DECENT TV PLAYER"

    January 21, 2010  |   By matt-de-ville

    Version: Satellite TV Media Player 4.5

    Pros

    lots of big channels (ESPN, etc.), channels and movies stream is reliable. streams are constantly updated (I get daily updates for free). excellent customer support. the program is user friendly. free trial.

    Cons

    you pay for unlimited membership.. if you dont wanna pay, go for other free tv players (there's plenty of them around) but, honestly, you cannot compare..

    "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.
