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.

Developer's Description

Amazing PC TV Player offering 3.000+ TV channels, 2.000+ Movies on Demand and 1.000+ Radio stations. Watch TV from all over the world (150 countries, 32 languages) and watch full length movies with online streaming technology (no download required). This is the only PC TV Player with daily updates. The channel list changes daily as channels and movies are maintained by a dedicated team of Content Managers who constantly review and add content when available. Satellite TV Player requires no antennas, TV cards, nor any hardware. All you need is a PC with internet connection. The new Satellite-TV-Player.com program is reliable, rich of content, fast, user friendly. The software is surprisingly reliable: nearly 95% of channels do actually work (other TV to PC software rate is around 60-70%). The channel buffering time is generally 3 to 8 seconds depending on the internet connection and the broadcaster's technology. Audio and video streams are not affected by any particular problem. The image definition is also excellent considering this is TV-over-IP technology. But what really makes the difference between Satellite-TV-Player.com and its main competitors is the channel offering itself. Just by giving a quick look at the channel list you can understand the value of this product. The new Satellite-TV-Player.com software comes with the largest premium channel pack ever seen in the internet with big names like CNN, ESPN, CBS, Discovery Channel, Al Jazeera, MTV, National Geographic, BBC, Eurosport, Euronews, France 24, DW TV and many other broadcasts from all over the world in more than 32 languages. In details, Satellite TV Player comes with: new channels filter, favorite folder, favorite channels management tool, full screen mode, end user guide, live updates. The daily updates can be downloaded anytime (takes 5-10 seconds). Windows Media Player 11 is required for optimal performance.
