Zattoo is a free desktop client for watching television programs. It connects to different online services across Europe.
Even though Zattoo is restricted based on your location, you can always access different television stations in countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, etc. by using a free VPN service.
The main interface of Zattoo provides a list of available channels for you to watch and depending on your location, also record TV programs to your hard drive, but only on Swiss channels.
The left hand panel provides a list of available channels to watch and the right panel is the viewing area; it also provides live previews of broadcasts. It also provide a search function and sorting of channels based on genre.
The EPG (electronic program guide) of Zattoo is similar to that of digital cable or satellite but a lot faster and more intuitive. You can browse between times and dates with ease.
Note that in order to use Zattoo, you have to setup an account first.
Overall, Zattoo is an excellent TV viewer with EPG and a search function, but it's limited to usage either from supported European countries or with a VPN.Zattoo features and highlights:
