ProgDVB Review




User Avg


ProgDVB is a completely free software that was launched 4 years ago in February 2014 for public users. It displays the live broadcast of radio stations and TV channels from many countries of the world. This is extremely useful for those who need to view and listen to the broadcast on their computers or mobile phones. The channels are shown to users in the legal manner and no anti-piracy rules are broken by using this tool. It has a user friendly interface and the options can be selected by using shortcut keys on keyboard.

The installation of ProgDVB is not a big deal. You can download its free setup file and then then run it for installing. In installation wizard you need to select the sources of TV channels, language of software, theme colors and remote control type. There are two versions; one of them takes more memory space and works faster while other one takes low space but works slower. You therefore need to ensure that you are installing the most appropriate version based on your system requirements and capabilities.

ProgDVB provides live streaming of many channels. In the menu bar you can see the names of all the available countries. Opening the name of your desired country will show the list of available channels. You can press enter and the live streaming of selected channel will start after buffering is finished. The streaming runs in full screen mode so you can see the videos in a better way. Settings option can be visited to customize device options, add-ons, TV sources and channels.

There are three distinguishing features in the software that make it better than many other products. It has the capability of supporting picture in picture i.e. one channel will run in full screen with volume and other one will run in smaller sized screen on mute. You can record or schedule recording channel flipping, app closing and streaming through settings. The streaming is broadcasted by catching channels from satellite. For this purpose Digital Satellite Equipment Control Protocol is used.

Supported Devices:
ProgDVB was developed solely for Windows Operating System. It can run on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 versions. Though it is small in size itself but it needs larger memory space for properly showing the channels on your system. Another necessity is the presence of .NET framework 2.0 or 4.0 on the system on which the software will work. A high speed network adapter is preferred too.

ProgDVB is a great choice for those people who do not have access to Radio or Televisions but want to watch and listen to different channels and stations. It catches live streaming of these channels via satellite and then shows it on the attached devices in good quality of voice and graphics. It is better to have a good internet connection and the memory of your system should not be filled up too much, in order to have good results. It is a recommended choice for watching NEWS, TV shows and movies.
