WorldRelay Tuner for iOS by WorldRelay

App Icon

WorldRelay Tuner is a television and radio app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It is free and was developed by WorldRelay.


In theory this app sounds very great: it lets you access small TV and radio channels, live cams from around the world, and various video libraries. In practice, this app is not very useful and it has an unappealing user interface.

If you were to choose the “activism” genre in this app for example, you’d see a list of channels which consists of one channel titled “Autism TV Network.” Upon tapping on this network, there’s not even live TV being broadcasted. The “network” is just a selection of YouTube and Vimeo videos. While it’s not quite clear where there’s only one channel under “activism” and why that channel is about autism, it’s even less clear as to what the benefits are of using this app versus just searching for the videos you want to watch on the internet.

The other channels are very low quality channels and provide no value to the user.


Although this app sounds like a great way to watch television on your phone, it’s far from that. WorldReplay is very clear in its App Store description that it doesn’t broadcast high quality pirated cable channels, but instead it broadcasts “micro channels that are unique.” None of the channels I viewed using this app are unique or interesting, so it’s probably a safe decision to pass up on this app.
