This is a stand alone program. Are you one of those people who need a TV running in the background? I do, so I made my own and now it's free for you. This is a small Desktop TV that you can have on your computer. It has three channels with 6 tunes per channel. I will add more channels with the next version. It will place an icon on your desktop if you choose. You can also place an Un-install icon in the start button/program directory. Complete instructions on how to operate this program are accessed from a help button in the program. Just click on the pd icon in the lower right corner of the screen.
