TVCatchup Desktop Player

TV Catchup, the service which provides quality live streaming of multiple UK television channels, have just launched a stand alone desktop application to view their service.

The dedicated Adobe Air app can be run on Windows, Mac OSX or Linux and replaces the need to run a browser whilst providing more functionality.  See the rest of the screenshots after the jump..

TVCatchup started life as a fantastically useful on-line PVR but the fun ran out all too soon when legal hurdles forced the service to shut down.

Since starting up again as a streaming only service we’ve wondered if the recording capabilities would ever return.  Well, while this hotly anticipated desktop player is still very much in beta, TVC have promised to bring a recording facility in a future version.

As an additional bonus the Desktop Player adds some new channels – up from the 18 currently delivered through the website to 24 in the standalone player (see channel list below).
