New Free Internet TV service

There is a new Free TV service over the internet in CH.

www.zattoo.ch

Currently running as a beta. I just gave it a try and it works ok as long as you don't want a full screen picture.

Data rate seems to be running at about 300-500kbps.

You need to register with an email address and download a their own player.

They plan to put ads between channel changes. Currently in the beta there are no ads. Not sure if this will work.

Anyway, might be worth a look?

(I have nothing to do with this site or company .. I hope this is not taken as an ad )

Channels:
Schweizerisch

SF1
SF2
SFi
TSI1
TSI2
TSR1
TSR2
International

BBC World
CNN International
Euronews
Eurosport
Französisch

Arte

Spanisch

TVE
Deutsch

ARD1
ORF1
Pro7
RTL
Sat1
Viva
Vox
ZDF

Re: New Free Internet TV service

Haha....cool now I can watch TV at work . But in no way a viable TV replacement. The quality is way to low. I dont think the rate is as high as 500kbps, 300kpbs maybe. Thanks for the link though, it will be interesting to see what they do with it.

Hi James,
Looks good , but don't know how they get away with it. I'm sure cablecom and all the local cable suppliers will have something to say about it, in the meantime I will enjoy it
Thanks.
Nick

Under: Task Manager -> Networking

I see ~400kbps (It is very variable).

I agree TV replacement it isn't,.
