I bumped into the Zattoo player recently. After a little playing around I’ve decided that it’s quite a good little technology.
It streams Live TV (in the UK BBC1/BBC2/BBC3/BBC4 and some others).
The technology is a proprietary P2P platform.
It connects quickly, and the quality is lovely in comparison to some of the other P2P video platforms.
Pop along and sign up for the beta, it’s certainly worth playing with. If some more of the channels from the UK/European are come on line it will be cracking.
The small issue at the moment, is to keep the broadcasters happy they limit the streams to local broadcasters, and those that don’t mind being broadcast in other territories. This stops us in the UK from receiving US and some European broadcasts.
