The install is easy and intuitive. You can put the program files
easily anywhere you want.
First of all. you need Windows Media Player and the RealNetworks Player
installed for CTube to work.
What this program does is stores a database of TV types stations that broadcast
over the internet and lets you easily connect to any of them. It uses a drop
down list of different categories:
As of this writing it has over 600 stations available for viewing.
It has adjustments so that you can view the pictures in different sizes
including full screen. It even lets you adjust the volume while in the program.
It is setup so that even if you have a dialup connection it is useful. You can
set it up so that the only stations in your lists are streamed for dial-up.
The trial version is severely limited. You get 15 days of trial use, plus on
each drop down lists you can only choose one of the first 10 selections. The
most limiting factor though is the 60 second limit viewing limit.
In conclusion. You probably could go out on the internet find all the programs
that stream, put together a list, make bookmarks.. In other words you would have
to be nuts to do all the work that CTube will do for you for $24.
Try It! Buy It!
