A few hours ago, I was speaking about the fact that the official Euronews app had been launched in the Windows Store for Windows 10, 8 users. Now, it’s time to talk about another television-related app – the Windows 10, 8 app for RCS & RDS subscribers from Romania.
RCS & RDS is one of the biggest television networks in Romania and recently they have release the Digi Online mobile apps for Android and iOS users. Now, the company has decided not to ignore Windows 10, 8 anymore, and has made available the Digi Online Windows 10, 8 app in the Windows Store. Since I’m living in Romania, I will be using this app quite often, as I also happen to be a subscriber with RCS & RDS. I’ve installed it a few hours ago on my Windows 10, 8 tablet and I can say that it works like a charm and I can watch my favorite football games from the comfort of my bed.
RCS & RDS brings its TV network to Windows 10, 8 users
Digi.Online este o aplicatie gratuita, destinata abonatilor RCS & RDS si iti permite: – vizionarea online a canalelor sportive Digi Sport 1, 2 si 3, a canalului de stiri Digi24 si a canalului muzical UTV – accesarea celor mai noi stiri de pe Digi Sport si Digi24 – vizualizarea programului TV pentru toate canalele Digi *- setarea de notificari de incepere a emisiunilor preferate de pe toate canalele Digi Canelele TV Digi: Digi Sport 1,2 si 3, Digi24, Digi Film, Digi World, Digi Life, Digi Animal World, UTV.
Of course, the app is available only in the Romanian language, as RCS & RDS operates only in Romania. The app comes with the following sections: news, sport, thematic, kids, movies, general and music. When watching a live feed of a football match, for example, you can change the quality of the streaming from low quality to medium, high quality and high definition. For some reason, the HD quality wasn’t working neither on my laptop, nor on my tablet, albeit they both have good resolutions.
However, not all the Digi TV channels are present with the app, as the rest of them is probably expected to come with future updates. However, right now you can use the Windows 10, 8 Digi Online app to watch live such important sports events as the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, MotoGP, Formula 1, Formula 3 and plenty more. The TV Digi channels are all there: Digi Sport 1,2, 3; Digi24, Digi Film, Digi World, Digi Life, Digi Animal World and UTV.
UPDATE: Digi Online has pretty good reviews in the Store, but many Windows 10 users complained about various technical issues when launching the app. For example, the app sometimes crashes or won’t load any channel, just to name two of these problems. While these issues are not that frequent, they suggest that the company still needs to optimize the app for Windows 10 — especially for the latest versions of the OS.
