Zattoo [Impressions & Questions]

Doesn't seem to be working - I have the application running fine, there's just no channels to choose from!

Anyone else finding this?

Re: Zattoo

Nope. Working fine for me. Are you logged in? Have you the channel browser selected (Ansicht->Kanal Browser)? Firewall?

Re: Zattoo

It's all running fine. There is no firewall issue that I'm aware of and it's the latest updated version.

I just don't have any channels to select from anymore.

Re: Zattoo

What do you get if you go to their Web site instead of firing up the application?

http://zattoo.com/en/tv-channels

I am seeing 111 channels, but that's 'cause I am in Germany temporarily.

Re: Zattoo

I'm still getting no channels, but at least it is now telling me there are no available channels. If I go to the website I can see all the available channels for Switzerland.

This is what I get when I open Zattoo:

Re: Zattoo

I'm sure you've tried asking...just curious what Zattoo support is saying when you ask them? I'm not having any problems with the latest update (which included a fix to exactly this issue)...

Good luck...

But surely Zattoo are not allowed to distribute English TV in Switzerland? Don't they have to be the free channels allowed in that actual country?

Re: Zattoo

No idea what the legal situation is behind it, but you can definitely get UK TV in CH with Zattoo.

It's working fine for me as well, so all I could suggest to the OP is double check firewall settings, make sure you're running the latest version and then contact support.

Re: Zattoo [Impressions & Questions]

I've not altered any settings on my computer or changed anything to do with firewalls. It worked absolutely fine until a couple of days ago.

I have emailed Zattoo support, but I'm still waiting on a reply.

This does seem rather strange, that it can work fine and then suddenly I have no channels to choose from, and it's working fine for others.

@ Roland... the English TV bit in that picture you quoted is a "playlist" I made myself to make the English language channels easier to find.

I was getting the exact same issue with my girlfriend's Macbook... oddly it now works on both though.

Still no response from Zattoo.

Re: Zattoo

Certain UK channels are freeview on satellite. So they're free here. I get them via digital cable. Zattoo has BBC1 and ITV, IIRC.

Anyway - recheck your firewall logs and settings. If there's any entries in the settings for zattoo, delete them, then relaunch zattoo.

I had problems with some comms software, where I'd accidentally given it the same profile as a browser - it needed a little more access than that.

Zattoo upgrade to 4.03 (1)

One is not impressed - I much preferred the previous version where I could make the TV "screen" the size I wanted it to be, and it never had annoying adverts at the side. This is how it looks now:

Re: Zattoo upgrade to 4.03 (1)

So, I don't get it.
I read through the terms of use agreement, and it says that sometimes you have to pay 50 E, and that Zattoo will change their charges as they see fit, up to their own discretion. Is this TV provider free or not?


oh... i see you can now *pay* to have the option of no adds

Re: Zattoo [Impressions & Questions]

For some reason I cannot longer watch the doubled series in English. Everything is in German/French/Italian
Is anyone else experiencing this?
Has something changed on the settings?

I've just installed the latest version and now it crashes as soon as the initial 30 second ad for Nissan has finished. I should have stayed with the old version.

Zatoo

For a few years now I have been watching BBC1 and ITV on Zatoo.

And then using my oh so lovely bi-canal button on the usual Swiss TV.

Yesterday, i went to watch the Jeremy Kyle Show - to be attacked by BBC 1, 2, 3, 4 - ITV, 1,2,3,4 Channel 4, Five, Film 4, More 4

Isn't that good? On the computer?
