myPlayer provides access to TV and radio streams directly to your Android device.
by on May 19, 2011
There are a number of apps on the Android Market that will let you stream TV and radio content, but there is a bit of problem due to the fact the legalities of doing this are very fuzzy. So much so that syndication problems have lead to the removal of iPlayer on what was was of our favourite streaming apps, myPlayer.
While this hampers what was a very good app, there’s still a number of channels you can get through myPlayer, which means TV watching on your Android handset.
The channel list is broken down by country: you have content from the likes of the UK, Argentina, Denmark and even India. Once you have chosen your feed, then this gets broken down again into channels.
We found that streaming the channels has something of a challenge since the new update that took away iPlayer. The app didn’t work on an Android 2.2 device at all, and when we did get streamed content it was full of glitches.
We’re hoping that the folks behind myPlayer are working on a solution, as the app is currently a pale imitation of its former self – which is a real shame, as the app was up their with the likes of SlingPlayer for offering TV content on your phone.
