SopCast Review

Felix Cheng
Peer-to-peer Internet television streaming app with a lot of content from China including state-run broadcasts, shared entertainment television and radio stations
A review of SopCast by Felix Cheng

SopCast is a relic from the early days of Internet television, mainly stemming from channels broadcast from within China including state broadcasts.

Though not the best of quality television you can access now-a-days online and certainly years behind other programs like Kodi, SopCast provides an insight into culture and television from Asian countries, mostly China.

You can use SopCast not just to watch Internet TV, but also access radio broadcasts in a variety of languages including English and Chinese.

The interface of this broadcast application can be tricky to get going during installation because of the ads it presents. Once you're past the advertising, using SopCast is pretty simple and the design is a tad minimalist.

When searching for available broadcasts to stream to your PC, you can search through tabs where channels are organized into different categories like movies, entertainment, news and others. You can also bookmark channels.

If you're looking to stream your own content, you can do so in the SopCast's supported formats: WMV, RMVB, ASF and perhaps others.

All in all, SopCast is what it is and may offer some interesting programming for those willing to venture through the good and bad a little bit. Good English-language content can be hard to find.

SopCast is software which can play online TV.
