Overview

Readon TV Movie Radio Player is a freeware internet TV program that allows you to watch and listen to thousands of free online internet TV and radio stations legally and with no charge at all. There is no paid version with more features, just the free one with everything in it.

Review

Internet TV is growing fast lately, there are numerous TV stations that broadcast regularly on the internet with decent quality streams. There are also a lot of programs that can play internet TV, from JLC’s Internet TV to Veoh TV or Miro. Somebody recommended Readon TV Movie Radio Player and I decided to give it a go. First of all the name of the program is maybe the less creative name I’ve ever seen… But let’s go further. When you open the program you’ll be greeted by a splash screen that promotes a different name for the program, “Redon Player”. I guess they still didn’t decide on the right name :)

The interface is quite simple, the TV stations on the right and the video on the left. You can browse through all the available stations by country, by name or by genre. I’ve tested about two dozens of them and they all worked. Also the streams have decent quality, I’ve already added some sports channels to my favorites :)

The program can also open third party SopCast and ShoutCast streams. You can also record some of the broadcasts with the help of the VLC plugin.

Despite the not so pretty appearance Readon TV Movie Radio Player is a solid freeware internet tv program, the stations that I’ve tried all work and the video streams open quite fast. Another good thing about this freeware program is that it does not have a paid version with more features, it even allows you to open the adult channels free of charge.

Verdict

Readon TV Movie Radio Player is a good solid internet TV freeware program, thousands of streams available legally (or so they say). The program is frequently updated and I hope there won’t be a paid version soon that would ruin the free program.
