Able to keep up to date with French issues and culture. Great to listen to spoken French to stop myself from the losing the ability to understand and speak the language. No problems encountered so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful app for learning French 16 Feb. 2013
By flobro
Verified Purchase
I've found this app really useful for watching French TV on my Kindle Fire. I often can't find TV to view on the PC and this has been the best way to do it. There are lots of channels to choose from. I don't understand why some of the channels won't load but there are lots of others to choose from.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent bit of kit. 6 Jun. 2013
By k

This programme offers a lot of french language tv channels, as if you were watching tv in france, with most of the channels working well, occasionally there are some buffering delays, but in the main it was a good find. You even get Fox movie channel with some good modern films in english that have not yet been on sky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent app for expats 23 Nov. 2013
By Clive B
Verified Purchase
If you live in France, this app enables you to stream French TV stations anywhere in the house. With an HDMI cable we can now watch BBC World and other channels directly in our bedroom and kitchen without an aerial connection.
Please put the Pro version in the Store soon !

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work properly 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase
I knew this was a bad buy from the first time I used it. It just would not work properly. Sometimes it would work for 5 minutes then stop or most of the time it would not work at all. When it did work only a few of the claimed channels were actually available. Don't bother is my advice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buggy but works OK 21 July 2014
By C. Day
Verified Purchase
A bit fiddly to understand, many of the channels don't work and quite buggy too. However, it does actually work quite well on my HTC One S and Kindle Fire HD so for a free app, it get's 4/5. The main problem is, however, that my AVG anti virus tells me this app is some sort of malware or trojan which makes me a bit worried! This app doesn''t appear to currently be in any future development and there doesn't seem to be any support for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars More suitable for mobile phone than tablet. 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase
This app works well for connecting to France 2,3,5 but may be unpredictable on other channels. However, you have the choice of a very small picture in portrait position, coupled with a large control panel, or a bigger widescreen picture in landscape. The widescreen picture is distorted on Amazon kindle because of non standard aspect ratio.

Tuning in a given channel is not very intuitive. You select a channel but then have to tap on what looks like an ip address for the programme to appear.

Obviously this app needs some improvement to produce a full size proper aspect picture which would make it a top notch winner compared to other internet services for viewing French tv.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work
I deleted this app after it repeatedly failed to work. If you want to watch French TV, it's best just to visit the sites of the TV stations themselves.
