TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 20 March 2013
As this app does not require Adobe Flash to facilitate streaming, it makes accessible the channels available on Freeview to UK-based TV users, especially those such as myself, using the Kindle Fire HD (who would have previously found this impossible, if my personal experiences are anything to go by, using alternative means).

From my viewpoint the streams generally work well, although I have found occasional variability due to broadband traffic issues, rather than as a consequence of any apparent weakness in the app. In fact there is a provision within the menu to modify the stream quality in relation to differing circumstances. The default is "auto select stream quality," but this can be changed to highest quality or lowest quality, in order to tweak the settings, if required.

The version I have downloaded is 2.300 with an updated audio streaming player and improved layout for tablets according to the documentation within the app. I cannot personally vouch for the extent to which this version has improved when compared with earlier versions, as I am unfamiliar with them, but this particular version seems to be serving my purposes well.

The menu option to hide or show the different channels is a useful means of customizing the channel list to the user's specific requirements.

So far the app seems to represent good value for money. The Electronic Programme Guide, which can be updated via wifi at regular intervals, is an additional bonus, both as a reference tool and as a means of linking directly to specific programme streams.
