Zattoo Live TV allows you to watch national and international TV channels on your Android

Zattoo Live TV is a webTV service that brings together national and international TV channels that broadcast online. Most of that channels are available in their own websites, however, Zattoo put them together in one site, enhancing its buffering thanks to its servers as well as making easier navigation and channel-surfing.

First off you need to create an account on Zattoo. Although depending on the country you can get a trial, this is a paid service (there are different subscriptions types). Zattoo is available in seven European countries: Germany, France, Switzerland, Luxemburg, Spain, UK and Denmark. From each country you will be able to watch your national channels and some international.

The app is set in a good-looking layout: landscape mode you can see thumbnails of what's on live, on portrait you can see a list of the channels (name and logo). We've run it over WiFi and it worked smoothly, no lag or buffering issues. Over 3G it didn't even load channels. Bear in mind that this is a beta version. You can try high definition videos (which is in experimental phase).

In summary, a great IPTV service which only catch is that it's paid (worth though). Great app.

    Good little app, rarely crashes or jumps, could do with a few more UK channels, but nice app all-round
