    Have to agree with user Mark's review on 17/7/2014, this is far and away the best TV app on WP. Thanks to the developer!

    Good picture quality although it just seems to be a clip of the program on loop
  • by User 19/07/2014
    Don't even work on my win phone sort it out then it will be a 5 star
  • by User 17/07/2014
    Works perfectly but has lost channels that where there for a long time not sure why. Still good
  • by Mark 16/07/2014
    *Update* Please do some research as to why certain channels have been removed & realise there is no other comparible service available. The abundance of 1 star reviews based on nothing but ignorance will serve no purpose other that to get this application abandoned by the developers. What a fantastic service TVC provide & all for free! The application is a solid performer, TV listings are built in & requested streams start in a matter of seconds! Couldn't ask for more, Thanks Guys!
