"Pretty good! For 'net TV!"

September 11, 2006  |  By DAKz

 |  Version: TVU Player 1.5.12 beta

Pros

I have tried several of the internet TV programs, and most are complete junk, some have nice interfaces, and do not work at all. This program is an average interface and while it only has a few channels, they are channels you watch! ABC,NBC,FOX,CBS,ESPN,HBO are all in there video quality is not the greatest, but it is as good as any ohter net TV. Buffering does take a while, same as any other net TV, even with a high speed connection (mine is 8m) it is either going to get it or not, it it don't load up then close it and restart, just like any other, the only thing that sets this apart form the others is the channels, it's great to keep up with football, news, etc. while your doing real important stuff like e-mailing Mom!

Cons

The whole net TV thing is 10 years behind this program is no exception, the windows 95/98 interface is proof of that. The images can be really bad at times, but I see no fault of the program in this, it is solid, stable easy to use.

"UNREAL! GREAT PROGRAM!"

September 10, 2006  |  By iwinez

 |  Version: TVU Player 1.5.12 beta

Pros

I give most programs a 2-4 star rating, and it has to really stink or really rock in order to get a 1 or a 5. This program is a 5, and I wish I could give it higher!

----------------------------------------------- Great Selection --

ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, ESPN, ESPN2, CNN, Cartoon Network, USA Network, Comedy Central, HBO, MLB, and more!

------------------------------------------------------- Great Quality --

Several people have knocked the quality of this program, but I don't know why. It took 5-10 seconds to start streaming (I have windows XP w/ Cable), and stayed that way for HOURS, without having to re-connect. The sound quality is almost GREAT (I give 3.5 out of 5), and the video quality is great as well. (4.0 out of 5).

------------------------------------------------------------- Overall --

There are several TV online programs out there, but in the order of greatness, this progream is EASILY number 1. No other program comes close. This program gets a 5 star rating because of the quality you get for free!!!!

Cons

I guess it could have more channels to choose from, and quality could improve, but I wouldn't complain about it. I think it's fine right where it is, and I want to give a huge THANK YOU to the makers of this product!!!!!!!!!

"I love this software!"

August 31, 2006  |  By colo-bix

 |  Version: TVU Player 1.5.12 beta

Pros

I use this software to watch cartoon network and disney channel. The quality may be a little better but I don't know another software on the pc to watch cartoon network.

Cons

Maby they will add some more tv channels in the next versions. TV-Channels like Toonami, Boomerang, Jetix, Nickelodeon, NickToons TV etc. This software will be very cool when they gets more then 100 TV channels.

But it's a great start of a very great product.

"Very good program if you dont have the channels at all like me..."

August 31, 2006  |  By mrwednesday

 |  Version: TVU Player 1.5.12 beta

Pros

First of all I moved to Sweden and the Swedish TV is terrible (They only have 3 channels if you dont have cable) not to mention that I dont understand nothing (yet)... So This program is great! A very good alternative where you can watch good channels like FOX, CNN, USA, Comedy Central, HBO and Cartoon Network for free and in a language that you understand... It takes some time to load but after it loads its quite ok... A lot better than the Swedish TV anyway...

Cons

It could have more channels but thats ok by me... Its better than nothing but If you live in the States maybe this program isnt a big deal for ya...

And theres the Chinese channels which I watch sometimes just for fun... But if Im going to watch some TV in a language that I dont understand I just turn on to the swedish TV... So those channels are completly useless... IF you dont know chinese of course :)

"Not bad, for free tv, but...."

August 30, 2006  |  By antijesusfreaker

 |  Version: TVU Player 1.5.12 beta

Pros

I can get all the news I want from cnn, which isn't bad, considering I've got five channels of cnn pipeline to choose from. Then there's cartoon network, ESPN, HBO, Disney.

Cons

I've gotta do some initial activating of my modem in order to get the live stream going; tvu takes a couple of tries to get the stream flowing properly. Otherwise the stream runs fine. And their version of the HBO channel is very poor, not to mention that most of the channels are in chinese.
