Nowadays, more and more people embrace the convenience of watching television channels and listening to radio stations from online sources, using their computers instead of the usual devices. A lot of applications have been developed for this purpose, and Internet TV & Radio Player is just one of them. While most of them are created to provide with a single functionality, either to let the users browse and watch online TV channels, or to let them listen to online radio stations, Internet TV & Radio Player manages to differentiate from the majority by the fact that it represents a solution for both these two wishes.
Internet TV & Radio Player comes with a very simple, neat, skinnable interface. Its most distinctive part is the panel in the left that will allow you to easily browse the stations by country. Radio and TV stations from a lot of countries are provided.
I like a lot the huge number of radio stations and TV channels that this program offers for being listened to or watched, for free. A downside of this tool would be the fact that it requires Windows Media Player and RealPlayer's codec in order to function properly, which you have to download and install separately as they are not included in the download package of this program. The fact that it crashed a couple of times on my computer makes me also add reliability issues to the list of downsides. Anyway, these crashes could have been just unlucky accidents and are therefore a pardonable matter.
Briefly, Internet TV & Radio Player is a simple and lightweight application that should be taken into consideration by anyone looking to watch television or listen to online radio stations on their computers.
