Zattoo WebTV - Quality TV live on your laptop

Wow - Live TV for free (even without swiss-local Bilag fee)! Currently 40 Channels available.

Zattoo was founded in US in 2005 by Sugih Jamin, professor for computer science at the University of Michigan, and Beat Knecht, a swiss software product marketing professional and former McKinsey consultant in Silicon Valley.

Zattoo is a Peer-to-Peer IPTV-Service. The main goal is a fast loading, long running Live-Internet-TV for broadband users, broadcaster, content owners and advertisers.

"Advances in broadband, video compression, and multicast streaming technology are rapidly lowering the technical hurdles for Internet and television to merge on a PC. However, there is still the matter of cost. Our streaming network solves that problem by reducing broadcasters' costs by a factor of ten, making it compelling for them to switch to our technology and broaden their service offering," said Sugih Jamin, CTO and co-founder of Zattoo. "Also, Zattoo's proprietary P2P streaming technology ensures a video delivery and smoothness that has until now been impossible to achieve."

Personally, I was impressed by the quality. No interrupt during 30 minutes test and I was surfing throu the web in parallel (Internet-connection: 4000 kb/s download, 400 kb/s upload).

Thanks for the article Patrick. Zattoo Switzerland is awesome because it offers almost any UK channel such as BBC. For those who can’t access it in your country, you can use UnoTelly as I do to get around the geo block.
