I downloaded this and found, much like others on this list, that the stations didn't work. The only thing I got to work was the weather channel and that was so fuzzed out that I could barely read it. When going to the link(s) on many of the channels I discover that these stations are on a subscription service; no way to get in without paying for them.
Needs a serious re-work of the interface, a better and clearer player and some way to verify that stations actually ARE available for viewing.
I uninstalled it forthwith.

You CAN download drivers from the nVidia and ATI websites for your notebook videocards. Sheesh!


LINK TO ATI DRIVERS click on "Graphics - Notebook" and enter information on the next screen.

So YES YOU CAN download your latest laptop graphics drivers from ATI and nVidia

One of the worst programs I have downloaded from GAOTD. I have a 3500+AMD Athlon 64 processor, 1gb memory running Windows XP media Center 2005 with ATI Radeon Xpress 200 graphics. Have tried high speed air card and DSL. Few stations available at anytime of the day. Lags and lock-ups are so annoying that I must unistall this senseless program to retain my sanity.

Runs great on vista basic
but jerky on XP with a 1.7MHZ intel processor, 512M.
Many channels are not active when you select them must know times channels are working on the net. Hate to select by trial and error big waste of time.

TVzation 2.0- Sounded interesting; downloaded the program and the necessary ATI file as explained. Installation of the ATI file crashed my computer big time. I almost couodn't get to a point where I could turn things around. The program refused to install without the ATI file, so I guess it's not for me.

This proram would not run at all on my laptop. :-( It has VISTA 32 bit installed and 1 & 1/4 GB of RAM too.

The program window would flash on the screen for a second and then disappear. Maybe I am running too much "protection" software?

Poor connections, on all channels seems to just stop, lock up. If you get a picture then it just freezes and you can't do anything but close and restart the program. Once in a while you get lucky and get maybe 30 secs or a minute of nice stream.

Why do you start yelling Ashraf (#95). Criticism aimed at arguments about the software are not personal. Fubar only pointed out he had doubts about your statement not having a notebook. Telling people he is leading visitors astray is not true in the first place but leading people astray in it self.

#3, #95, Ashraf, which is of us is leading people astray? You tried to back off from comment #3 by inserting the word "generally" in comment #95, but that's not what comment #3 said. The fact is, mobile drivers are available from both ATI and nVidia. You can check the websites, and if drivers aren't available for your hardware and software platform, then check for updates via your OEM, or you can try one of the Mobility Modders (nVidia here). ATI has always had terrible drivers, and personally, I wouldn't buy anything that didn't have a replaceable video card, unless maybe it was one of those new super-small mobile PC's, where you don't have decent video, anyway. Computer OEMs are always extremely slow to update drivers, and generally quit doing so for computers which are more than a couple of years old. They don't want to deal with testing, and potential new support issues.

Newer drivers generally offer much better performance, bug fixes, and possible new features. nVidia's new drivers support CUDA and PhysX, and they list not only supported chipsets, but incompatible notebooks/laptops, and special installation instructions. The question isn't whether a driver is "beta", but whether it works better than your current driver. Personally, my experience with nVidia drivers is that newer drivers are almost always better, beta or not, and that the beta drivers are generally as reliable as released drivers to that date. Further, XP and newer let you rollback drivers, apart from System Restore.

This program isn't the most useful program of this type I have ever seen. I can't get any stations from countries that are alphabetically beyond Pakistan. Pakistan is the last country that shows on my list of countries. There are not even any stations from the United States on this program at all. Most of the stations that I have tried will not work and most of the stations that have worked for me have not been English language broadcasts. Therefore, it is rather useless to me. I may keep it installed to see if they update the list of available countries. I'm not really sure yet though.

I tried it. And as an experiment it was interesting. As a replacement for cable or satellite - don't bother. As a representative of several similar much ballyhooed programs that seem to good to be true - don't waste your money. This program seems to be based on a inherently false principle. That all of these TV stations have sufficient bandwidth & server speed to feed TV over the Internet to whoever wants it. In a real case, where I connected directly to a site that was broadcasting live, not using this program, I saw the quality go down as the number of of viewers went up over the course of the hour long show. Until, by the time it got to 61 viewers it was unviewable. If you are lucky you may get something you want to view with this program.

I've had much better success with Miro (getmiro.com) that is based on a different principle. It uses a complete copy of the program which is stored on the Internet which you then download & then watch. The picture & audio quality is then very good. However, downloading these higher resolution videos takes much more Internet bandwidth & hard disk space on your computer (recoverable after you have watched the video).

#96 covers it all, I am just adding that there is a Mobility Modder not just for ATI but Nvidia drivers also, and it works far better than the beta Nvidia drivers. We have two Vista laptops that were left out in the cold by both Nvidia and ATI as far as driver upgrades, and Mobility Modder worked perfectly on both. Vista laptop users should definitely try the Mobility Modder, but the general rule is to upgrade drivers only if you are experiencing problems. Surprisingly, ATI does offer Mobility Radeon drivers for laptops running Windows 7 beta that are not offered for Vista.

As to this giveaway - just do a search for free tv and radio sites and you will find dozens that require no payment, registration or plugins, and offer tv and radio from all over the world. Quality and selection depends on time of day and connection speed, which is not the fault of the site or program like today's giveaway. There just really is no reason to pay for an app like this, other than the cute gui.

I invested quite a bit of time checking out most of the stations listed. Select USA for Country, then Any for category. There are about 100 stations listed. After clicking on each one, waiting a minute for something to appear, there were 7 stations that actually played something at prime time, 6:00pm Pacific time. 4 of them were Christian stations with preacher-casts. The software provides nothing for listings or broadcast schedules so why would anyone waste their time with this? I spent 100 minutes searching for any content to play. This is pretty useless without some attached broadcast schedule and listing. Thanks for allowing me to explore this software. I appreciate GOTDs service to expand my exposure to software solutions.

What i don't understand is the manufacturers of these types of software say you can watch tv on your pc...yet the only channels you get working are traffic cams and cams watching grass grow. How exactly is that "tv". Anyway you put it it's false advertising. Which can get a company into serious trouble. Also, you will not get foreign NBC, FOX, ABC etc. So don't bother. Plus you can go to those sites and watch the episodes right from the site itself. I find software like this to be a waste. A good idea, if it worked, but generally wasted space on a hard drive. And near impossible to watch on anything slower than DSL speeds.

I have used many of those internet TV programs, but none of them were good (bad video quality and/or some channels not working).
I'm using a IPTV service (80+ channels at 4.5mbits/s), so I don't need programs of this kind, but thanks anyway GAOTD.

No WAY would I pay any $ for this. The channels are lame, almost Access TV types. And at that, only about 1/3 of them would even come up. This would have been good if it actually tapped into feeds where you can watch shows/news etc. although that may not be doable due to legal reasons. I was surprised you couldn't get things like the BBC for instance.

It gives you a warning that:
TVzation requires OpenGL 2.0 display technology.
You must install an OpenGL 2.0-compatible video driver from the video hardware manufacturer first!

However, that does NOT mean that you don't already have those drivers. I would go try it first to see if you even want it before updating drivers and especially heed #3's warning if you have a laptop!!!

And why do they have a listing for England and then another listing for the UK. They're one and the same.

Installed and ran fine on Vista Premium x64. Would not connect to any USA channels, and limited connection to other country listings. Low level resolution on all the channels that actually did connect.
Search the Freeware and open source software sites and many other programs like this can be found, MOST run much smoother and can connect to 90% or more of the listed channels. On a 1-10, this software receives a 1.0, for installing and uninstalling without a problem.

Took a chance and downloaded this and gave it a try. Not the best, but it does work. Sometimes channels load, then I try again and they don't. Simply kill program, restart, then the channel works again.

For me, living in Detroit (HOCKEYTOWN baby!) this is totally worth it simply because there is an NHL channel and it works great!!

If you are a hockey fan, then you should try this!!
I installed it on XP Home and didn't have to update any drivers, it loads and works pretty good. So far, maybe 40% of the channels I try work, but so what, as I mentioned, the NHL channel works great, good enough for me to give a thumbs up!!

Program works OK. Using it on a computer with a Nvidia graphics card. I've tried to install it on a laptop with an ATI card. So far, it hasn't activated when trying to connect to the giveaway site.

I like the Central and South American sites as weil as Canada, Spain, Great Britain, etc. Quality varies tremendously depending on the quality of the broadcasting station.

Using Internet Radio Fan, I found a station broadcasting in HD. Quality was better than most; I only have a 1.5m broadband connection though.

Fubar #37 said "I don’t have a laptop/notebook PC, but I have my doubts about #3, Ashraf’s, comment concerning drivers. Obviously, the links are only if you have either of those video brands. Both sites listed drivers for mobile/laptop/notebook chipsets."

Anyone that actually tries to upgrade their drivers for their notebook from ATI' website will notice a few things:
1) For notebook graphic cards, only the drivers for XP Home/Pro x86 are available - and this support for notebook graphic cards are limited to
# Mobility Radeon™ X1800
# Mobility Radeon™ X1600
# Mobility Radeon™ X1400
# Mobility Radeon™ X1300
# Mobility Radeon™ X800
# Mobility Radeon™ X700
# Mobility Radeon™ X600
# Mobility Radeon™ X300
# Mobility Radeon™ 9800
# Mobility Radeon™ 9700
# Mobility Radeon™ 9600

For all other graphic cards, or if you don't have x86 XP Home/Pro, you will not find Mobility drivers listed on ATI's website.

2) For Vista ATI says outright:
Currently AMD does not provide any driver support for Mobility Radeon™ products. All driver and technical support for Mobility Radeon™ products is provided by the original laptop or notebook manufacturer. The drivers that are available for download at ati.amd.com are for desktop products only.

To download Windows Vista Mobility Radeon™ drivers or driver updates for your laptop or notebook product, please visit your laptop or notebook manufacturer's website.

The problem is so bad concerning people having to rely upon their manufacturer for video card drivers (as opposed to downloading updated drivers directly via ATI), a third party came up with a program called Mobility Modder that allows you to mod ATI desktop video drivers to work on laptops (don't try it unless you know what you are doing/are willing to take risks).
Thus all added up is why I said generally you should go to your laptop's manufacturer for video drivers.

Nvidia is actually a few steps ahead of ATI (as usual). They have just recently started supporting drivers for notebooks directly instead of making people go through the manufacturer. However whoever goes to try to download them will notice they are in beta. As I said, stick to drivers from your manufacturer; there is no need to test out Beta drivers when you can get sufficient drivers from your manufacturer.

Hope that helps anyone that was led astray by Fubar's #37 comment.

There is one common set of facts with this, and all, Internet television services. The video comes from one or both of two places: a collection of streams from the production companies (NBC, Universal, KBS), or from a net-connected C-Band receiver. both are available without software to anyone who wants to look around in Google a bit.

That said, these programs DO bring the advantage of having it all in one place. And in some cases there are enough stations to make it worth a few Dollars/Euros.

For this, I've always hated flash to begin with. I hate flash sites, and I hate flash programs. However this has a fair variety for those who can deal with flash.

Way to much Adobe-based crap going on
It took forever to update the database
It takes forever to lock onto or log into stations.
Takes up a TON of resources.
This uses both C-band and streaming feeds. Problem is, most of them don't work.

Under China alone, NJTV, CTZ and discovery all fail. No Mega, IBN works only on occasion, KYO fails. Iraq has stations that haven't been on air in years, MTV-Asia is dead, LFX drops, KBC loads but only gives a white box. All 4 KBS stations fail.

They need a better source for their streams. This one just doesn't match up to the dozens of other free and pay services.

Streams that lock in for longer than the first few minutes don't drop out.

@36 Ashraf - thanks for the alternatives - some good stuff!

Todays giveaway was a time waster for me - most stations I wanted to play would not - the content is extremely limited and as Ashraf pointed out it's not really computer friendly.

One alternative that I've had luck with is TVUPlayer @ www.tvunetworks.com - it's definitely a few steps up from this IMHO

Thanks to GAOTD for all you do but this one gets a thumbs down...

User report

Product: Internet TV software. 480 channels of 20 different types from 70 different countries. Allegedly.

GOTD Version: 2.0. Retail: forty bucks. Current version: 4.0.

Install: fast and fuss-free activation. Subsequent uninstall, clean (with Revo.) Note that app rings home during uninstall and onscreen message appears: I uninstall TVzation&trade because. No idea what "&trade" means.

UI: clean, attractive, easy to use. Lefthand column consists of countries. England has apparently declared independence because it features separately from the UK. Righthand column consists of program genres. Amongst the genres is "Unknown", into which category falls, for example, NBC Los Angeles (see next.)

Operation: Click 'Any' at top of countries list, then select whichever genre you prefer from the righthand list. A selection of TV shows appears centre-screen. Highlight your chosen show then click arrow to play. Theoretically, Internet TV will now kick in, with the option to save as a Favorite Channel, and to maximise to full screen. Alternatively: choose your country, see what it offers -- best forget Australia then: it's not broadcasting anything at all, apparently -- and then play your choice.

Result: the "unknown" genre is by far the biggest, illustrated here by NBC Los Angeles which is indeed entirely unknown. Click on it, and after a while, the screen shows a set of blue cards with white question marks. The one that relates to the TV show you're trying to watch is the biggest blue card with the biggest white question mark.

Successes: Calais TV proved excellent if incomprehensible. But then, it was all about Calais. Good image quality even at full-screen but with the UI showing through from the background. Gilbert (Arizona) TV very nice if you wish to help Gilbert. Not clear whether this is a person or a place but either way, the DVD slideshow here isn't bad though could be better with more slides than just the two, seeing as how it's asking you to lend Gilbert a hand. Euforia TV from somewhere (Lifestyle category) displayed good picture quality but unintelligible sound. TVzation found it so euphoric, it locked up. It eventually returned to provide Astro TV, an astrology channel from Germany, where a man talks endlessly to camera whilst shuffling a pack of cards. If holidaying in Germany, then, best take a portable DVD player with you.

Failures: everything else apart from Gems TV shopping channel. The thought occurs that being able to watch Gems TV over the Internet is not necessarily a good reason for acquiring a computer, still less this software.

Verdict: Very probably, amongst the most pointless pieces of kit ever offered on GOTD: not so much a beta version as an omega, which means there are a hell of a lot of stages for this software to get through before it can begin to justify the so-called commercial price of forty bucks.

Who's going to do that though isn't clear: the software comes without any developer's name, or publisher's brand, and seemingly originates somewhere in Sakhalin (the island off Khabarovsk, north of Japan.)

The publisher's home page does little to provide confidence, seeing as how it appears to have been spun out of an episode of The Simpsons: CrispyBytes.

Offering everything from garden sheds to debt consolidation advice via what it claims are sponsored links, CrispyBytes also has its home in far-off Sakhalin.

So perhaps Sakhalin has better TV access via the 'Net than anywhere else: 480 channels from 70 different countries. Perhaps the GOTD version 2.0 of this software is a klunker compared to version 4.0 not offered on GOTD.

Who knows. Who cares. As a complete waste of time, TVzation 2.0 is in a class of its own -- well, almost, because so is today's GOTD ratings verdict.

If ever there was a justification for GOTD to scrap the thumbs up / thumbs down "User Rating" system, today's software is it.

At the time of writing, over 200 thumbs up have been given to TVzation, a figure which cannot possibly represent the considered assessment of a user of TVzation but is instead the total number of icon-jabs by surfing morons.

No marks, then, for today's GOTD offering. . . nor for the instant-click 'User Rating' system. GOTD has done many, many favours for many, many people -- it's about time it did itself and its reputation a favour now by amputating those daft, discredited thumbs.
