"Watch TV, listen to the radio on the Internet"
Super Internet TV is a live television and radio listening software package that captures video/audio and audio-only streams and plays them inside the application. A TV tuner card is no longer needed to be installed inside a Windows PC in order to access hundreds of TV channels and thousands of radio channels from over 100 countries.
The TV stations cover many popular choices like BBC London, Sky News and the Wildlife Channel in the UK, Barcelona TV and Telemadrid Sat in Spain, and Smart TV in Romania.
With the radio stations that can be streamed to the Super Internet TV application, there are over 5,000 radio stations including Pump.fm, Kiss FM Melbourne and 4BH Brisbane in Australia, and Jazz FM, Capital Radio and BBC Radio 1-4 in the UK.
The only things that are required for this software to work is a live internet connection, RealPlayer, and the Super Internet TV package.
The package is particularly good for people who enjoy learning new languages by being exposed to live conversation on the radio and foreign language programming from local TV stations. The range of publicly available TV stations is far wider in non-English speaking countries, but English language support is better with radio as many radio stations now stream their audio live online. It is worth pointing out that the content limitations are not specific to Super Internet TV but are a reality of the content that's available free of charge online via streaming.
There is a free and premium version of Super Internet TV. The free version has been tested here. With the free version it is not possible to record radio or TV stations, receive automatic channel updates, and video streaming is not as quick.
The installation proceeded without any issues. RealPlayer needs to be installed to enable in-app TV playback. There were no malicious programs installed with the program.
Super Internet TV requires Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003, 2000, ME or 98.
The interface is mostly comprised of a video screen and controls for playback. There are some buttons at the top as a toolbar for TV, Radio, My Favorites, Tools, and Help.
The TV or radio station information is shown in the bottom-left just below the video display.

Super Internet TV does a good job of providing available internet radio and TV stations streamed through this app with the option to save the favorite ones.
