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.

    I have an account but as soon as I want to log in the app doesn't work... Just tried it with another device but still not working.. Can't imagine people gave 5 stars and 1 million downloaded it. I would love to give min stars than 1. Even the layout looks shitty. But as long as I can deinstall apps everything is fine.

    Freezes the complete Phone in the guide screen (at some point the watchdog triggers a reset). Please readd the option to disable HW rendering or fix it.

    The update is terrible. Streaming is constantly interrupted for a split second (Android on a Lenovo tablet). How can I go back to the previous version which worked OK ? Zattoo quality control seems to be insufficient. New : Update seems to want to work but alas still bad with constant flickering and micro interruptions

    Works flawlessly! Nice look and feel with the new version. Developers should get a big bonus for this app.
