Do you want to watch TV on your computer but are tired of those applications that promise a good user experience and cannot offer it? onlineTV is one of the few that allows us to enjoy our favorite programs and series in the same way we can with a TV at home. So if you don't have a TV, this is one of the best possible replacements.
onlineTV is a paid service but with a trial version, which doesn't just offer you a huge number of TV channels from all over the planet, which would be interesting. Still, it will allow you to access other types of attractive multimedia content. We are talking about radio stations, newspapers, and many more. This way, you will avoid downloading several apps on your PC since only one will be enough for several uses.
How it works
Thanks to onlineTV, you can follow your favorite TV shows and listen to the radio or read the most important newspapers from various countries around the world. Want more? You should know then that this platform integrates at the same time webcams strategically located in different parts of the planet, thanks to which you can see what some of the most popular tourist sites look like.
Another feature of onlineTV that we liked is the one that has to do with recording all the sounds that come directly from the speakers of the computer so that they are stored as new files on the hard drive. And as you generate a collection of different sounds, you can also manage them from this utility, so it has an administrator use that makes it even more complete.
Do you have a lot of audio files stored? That's another good excuse to install onlineTV on your computer, considering that it has an integrated editor for these contents and support for ID3 type tags. To that, you have to add some complimentary utilities, such as those that will allow you to extract different sections of the music CDs you have so that you can have your favorite songs in MP3.
This last function we described can also be extremely useful for radio lovers since you can program the recording of your favorite programs in case you can't listen to them live. This way, as soon as you get home at night, you can run that recording and enjoy it as if it was happening at that moment.
And if you want to make sure you have your content anywhere, from onlineTV, it's possible to store it on USB devices, as well as on your iPod, PSP, DVD, or any other space without having to worry about compatible formats.
The user interface of onlineTV is not bad. In fact, it resembles most applications in its segment logically, which means that if you have previous experience with others, you can use it without adaptation. Of course, it misses other language translations, considering that, as anticipated, almost all the menus are in German, its original language, or English.
Keep in mind
As we anticipated at the beginning of the review, onlineTV is not a free application but a paid one, which is why we will have to take the trouble to pay for it at the end of the trial weeks. Then, on its authors' website, you will see that there are different packages we can buy, even some with a version for Android, so you can watch TV from the phone.
The main positive aspects of onlineTV have to do, without a doubt, with the large amount and variety of content available to us, leaving the usual proposal of television programs to also contribute in terms of radio programs and even newspapers. In addition, being able to record all these transmissions to enjoy them at any other time also gives it some advantage over the competition.
The worst thing about onlineTV is that it is a paid application, so we will only be able to enjoy it for a few days on our PC before paying the money according to the package that interests us. But besides that, the availability of the service only in English and German indeed plays against him, thinking that many of its paid rivals do have other language translations.
Do you want to see a huge amount of television content and listen to the radio from the same platform? Are you especially interested in everything related to German culture? Then onlineTV becomes one of the best alternatives to consider.
