An app that promises free streaming TV but much like the Loch Ness Monster, it’s rarely seen.
by on August 14, 2010
We’ve seen a number of streaming TV apps for Windows Mobile, such as SPB TV and Streams-T.
Our initial reaction to TheChanner is that it appears to be offering the same selection of foreign-language and English news channels as these.
Our next reaction is that at least those apps worked as TheChanner does not, at least not at the moment and in the sense you can watch anything with it, beyond a blank screen. We’re also not the only people to have problems with TheChanner.
It’s a shame as the basis of TheChanner is fine, even though the available channels are limited, largely foreign language and news channels.
We found the channel list to be somewhat unwieldy to navigate, even with the filter system, that helps limit channels to language and location. There’s a favourite system that helps overcome this but ultimately if the channels can’t be streamed there’s no point even installing TheChanner
