The Online TV Player is a program that accesses online TV and radio from around the world and streams it on your computer.

This program has a very simple layout and there really isn't much to it. You simply go through the lists of online TV and radio from whichever country you want, and select one to watch. It does require you to have certain additional programs like RealPlayer and Windows Media Player in order to play a number of the TV channels. We didn't have RealPlayer, but even the channels that did not require this would not open and didn't start streaming for us. There were just too many errors for this to be a worthwhile download. When we went to the Help page to see if we could fix the problem, we were met with poorly written English and still no answer to why none of the channels worked. No matter the time zone or the numbers of times we tried, an error always popped up. This was the latest update, we were connected to the Internet, and we had the latest of everything except RealPlayer, so it should have worked at least for some channels. Combine that with the overall look of the program and we unfortunately feel like we wasted time downloading this.

The download process, while not worth it, was really quick and simple. Once the installation process is over, you have the option of immediately launching the program and its Web site, which is a convenient step.
