PROS: Simple interface and easy to set up even for a novice user (if you\’re willing to do some reading and experimentation.) Steams your TV to you wherever you are in the world–even to a mobile device. You can remotely schedule TV show recording through Windows Media Center so you don\’t have any excuse for missing your shows.

CONS: Not as simple to use as programs like Orb (although Orb doesn\’t really do the same thing as this software, the underlying principle is the same.) As of the time of writing this review, this program is not compatible with Windows 7.

VERDICT: If you\’re interested in watching shows on the go from your smart phone or from an Internet cafe etc, then this is a great solution and best of all it\’s free. The user interface may not be the most friendly in the world but it is easy to use and is kept simple; glass, you should be able to enjoy your shows without much effort.
