Zattoo

Does anyone use or have experience with Zattoo?
Looks interesting.

Re: Zattoo

Hi there.
I have used it for the last 6 or 8 weeks or so. At first the channel line up was quite limited but recently it has improved though still no competition for freeview.
The fact that it exists involves some controversy and apparently uses some random broadcasting law loophole. It is reported that some of the channels carried by Zatoo are taking legal action.
It works well and is a decent service. How long it exists remains to be seen.

Re: Zattoo

I like Mark have been using it for a month or two now. Performance and picture quality is good. The application itself doesn't seem bloated and it's just 'easier' than using channel 4's simulcast or ITV's live streaming services (plus isn't limited by licensing infringement like they are).
Be warned though, there are occasions where it saps the upload on your connection (although in contrast there are times when no upload is used at all).

Re: Zattoo

Thanks for the replies, I'll give it a whirl.
Would have been useful on Wednesday when I lost the who watches what with SHWMBO and ended up having Britain's talentless on instead of the football  Cry
