Default App for watching free streaming tv?

I watch alot of foreign tv from sites like South Korea - Watch free live TV . I was wondering if theres any app for android ( i have a samsung galaxy) that lets you watch such links. Most of these are
mms:// addresses linked to streaming videos. like : mms://118.46.233.19/tvs

I have yxflash app installed on my phone. It loads the links but the video freezes after 1 second. Are there any other apps that work ?

Thanks.

i'm interested to see if Hulu makes an app once flash is fully implemented onto droids, that'd be some serious competition!

fluharty13 : Thanks for the reply. But i cant seem to find the tv.com app. Is it a paid app? I live in Canada soo no paid apps and im currently using a samsung galaxy.

Covert_Death: That would be cool. Unfortunately i've never used Hulu. I live in canada and we dont have access to hulu =p. I just want to be able to watch the mms:// streaming videos for free international tv.

anyone else have any suggestions?

Here are a few different tv apps for Android. You can either watch tv from the apps or access online streams from the apps. I don't know if they will be available where you are, but figured you could try.


Tv.com
SPBTV Paid
SPBTV Lite Free
JetFlicks Paid
JetFlicks Free
FreeTV(Lite)
Television
Stream Media Player
Ustream Viewer

Is TV.com any good? Got some poor reviews on the market.

Reply much appreciated

-I cant get access to any of the paid ones soo Spbtv paid, jetflicks paid, television is all out of the question.
-Tv.com and FreeTv(light) dont show up in the market place for me either.
-Jetflicks isnt what im looking for exactly since those are all recent american shows. Im interested in foreign tv.
-Ustream only accesses Ustreams.


Stream Media Player player and Spbtv ( lite) are the closest things out of your list that interests me. Unfortunatly Spbtv doesnt have any Korean channels. Which is what im looking for. Other than that the channels i tested work great.
Stream Media is great too. Its exactly what i need but it seems to only accept RTSP:// addresses. This program would be perfect if i could input a MMS:// Address.

The only app i found that lets me input mms:// addresses is the Yxflash
Unfortunatly the video stream freezes after 1 second.



I hope there will be other apps that lets your input mms:// address to watch streaming media...

Googlephone TV Lite and Googlephone Radio is probabaly what yu're looking for. It brings korean TV and radio stations. Lite is limited in stations, Paid version has more stations to watch & listen to.

I just noticed this, available for UK Android users.

TVCatchup Beta for UK users

And don't forget Beebplayer (clone of BBC iPlayer) which is already working.
