A long list of TV channels and radio stations from around the world
- Good quality reproduction
- Endless catalog
- Varied channels
- Allows you to record (if you're registered)
- Category filters aren't useful
Live TV for Windows 8.1 is an application for TV and live radio offering access to more than 500 live television channels in different languages from the Filmon platform.
Sport, bikinis, news... a bit of everything
The variety of TV channels on Live TV is overwhelming. There really is a bit of everything and they are perfectly categorized either by theme or region. Some examples: UK TV, Sports, News, Babes in Bikinis, Horror, Movies by Title, Documentaries, Humor, Lifestyle, Kids, Music... and the list goes on.
In addition to TV, Live TV also offers access to hundreds of radio stations from around the world, so the variety of content that you've got access to is pretty spectacular.
After selecting the channel you want to watch, just click on it to begin viewing. On one side of the screen you'll see the channel's program guide where upcoming programs appear.
Live TV also offers the interesting possibility of recording programs, although you must be a registered user (it's free) and log in to do this.
Easy access to channels and good quality
Live TV is easy to use. On the main screen the list of available channels appear and all you do is click on one to start playing. To try to minimize the impact of seeing so many channels at once, Live TV provides a filter, although it's not very effective since it only allows filtering by free channels and/or the channel programming guide. The best way to organize your favorite channels is by ticking them, so that they appear first.
Playback quality of Live TV is surprisingly good. In general the channels are great quality. Obviously it depends on many factors, such as connection quality, but overall it's very good.
A world of audiovisual content
Live TV has few channels in languages other than English, that's true, so if you're looking to watch TV in your own language, I'd not recommend it. But, if you want channels in English (mostly) and content of all kinds, Live TV is a great choice for both its variety and quality of reproduction.
