The application doesn't stand out for its default red interface, which is also confusing and not suitable for a TV player. Moreover it is neither intuitive nor elegant and it's impossible to resize the frame which is really annoying. An invasive banner is also present in the frame-mode view, but it disappears in the full-mode view which is available by simply clicking once on the video screen.

iRtv collects a good selection of BBC documentaries that you can watch outside the UK with good sound quality and a decent full-screen video resolution.

Whether at work or at home, the day will be more enjoyable & go faster watching or listening with Internet Radio and TV. Internet Radio and TV has hundred's of radio and TV shows to watch and listen to.
