If you do not have antenna, but you have internet, this is a great solution to watch TV or to listen FM radio. It is providing the user with full control over the program. This is made possible through the analog TV cards which come with support for WDM drivers.
After installation, the application proceeds to perform an autoscan of all channels and provide a list of available ones on the network. The application gives you control over basic image processing functions such as capturing, zooming, editing aspect ratio and creating slideshows.
You can set the language of the interface from more than 20 languages. The application allows you to pause live streaming when interrupted or if you need to take a break, and you can as well fast forward through those long and boring commercials.
The principle of buffering encoded images taken from ongoing TV stream on which the application is based on, allows you to shift back and forth through the timeline of the live stream.
If you want total control over your live stream, then this is the right option, but you will need an upgrade if you also interested in recording your TV shows. This Lite version does not have TV recording option, but they are available on Standard and Pro versions.
