Top 5 Internet TV Players + TV freebies

Here you go, a quick internet TV round-up: Top Internet TV players for your desktop, major directories to watch popular TV content for FREE, and a bunch of websites to stream live TV channels.

(1) Internet TV Players

Joost (www.joost.com)

Over 100 high-definition TV shows (Comedy central, Punk’d, Super Cars, Nat geo, etc.) and channels from various categories (Cartoons, Film, Comedy, Music, Documentary, Entertainment, Sports, and Liefstyle). More Joost screenshots [NO LONGER WORKS] here.

Zattoo (www.zattoo.com)

Zattoo provides excellent picture quality and viewing experience. Service is mainly focused on European channels and offers almost 50 live TV channels (some channels are limited to particular geographical locations.)

Babelgum (www.babelgum.com)

Babelgum provides a nice easy-to use TV player but unfortunately doesn’t have much channels to choose from. I used it for some time initially but switched to Joost right after I got my invite, and haven’t checked it since. When it comes to Internet TV the amount of available programs service has to offer is definitely the most important factor.

Miro (www.getmiro.com)

Miro (formerly Democray Player) is very different from the tools mentioned above. It’s all-in-one player that lets you navigate though and subscribe to over 1500 web shows, vlogs or podacsts. Additionally, Miro can be used as: BitTorent client, Video downloader (Youtube, Google Video, DailyMotion, etc.), and video player (Quicktime, WMV, MPEG, XVid, AVI, etc.). Check out video screencast here.

VeohTV (www.veoh.com/veohTV/)

VeohTV lets you watch and record Internet video from thousands of video sources, incl. Yotube, GoogleVideo and Myspace. You can also enjoy certain full-length episodes from traditional TV channels i.e. ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, etc. Search for channels, browse channels by category, record favorite episodes, add desired channels to favorites, and more. Check out full channel list here.

TV Channel Directories

There are dozens of websites that aggregate, categorize and rate TV channels. In most cases, users can stream traditional TV channels (CNN, BBC, ABC, ESPN and lots more) without leaving the website. I have written and compared web TV channel directories before so I’ll just list them here.

Enjoy and share!
