GLWiZ is an app that lets you watch live TV channels, TV series and movies. The content is officially provided by GLWIZ, GEM, IranProud and other big media corporations.
In-App Content 7/10
In order to use GLWiZ you need to pay subscription fees once a month. In return, you get many TV channels of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), as well as Persian channels popular in western countries. The app has a wide selection of Kurdish, Afghan, Azeri, Armenian and Assyrian channels, too. Besides, you can listen to radio stations streamed in Iran and some other countries.
GLWiZ supports VOD – Video on Demand. It allows you to watch movies and TV shows at any convenient time. You can customize your selections and pause, rewind and fast forward any TV program.
Live Streaming Quality 7/10
GLWiZ can't promise high streaming quality because it depends on the Internet bandwidth. However, developers say the app can automatically adjust the bandwidth to ensure better quality. Besides, GLWiZ chooses the highest possible quality and adjusts to your settings. Still, international channels don't exhibit the highest quality picture.
The great thing about the app is that it isn't restricted to limitations on satellite dishes. If you use the app on your TV, no additional cables are required. Everyone with high Interned speed can use GLWiZ. Unfortunately, the app can't record TV programs.
Subscription Policy 8/10
With GLWiZ, you only pay for the time you actually use the app. Monthly subscriptions can be canceled at any moment. There are also non-refundable pre-paid subscriptions, but there is no commitment to renew them once they expire. As a little bonus, all users get a 30-day free trial. On the other hand, if you have two TVs at home, you will have to get a separate subscription for each TV.
GLWiZ is available on the App store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Besides, you can use it on Samsung Smart TVs and Samsung Blu-ray Players with Android Smart TV boxes. If you buy GLSmartBox, you will also get access to Netflix and YouTube.
If you enjoy watching Farsi, Turkish or Iranian channels, GLWiZ is your cup of tea. From a villa to an apartment block, you can use it anywhere. Still, you should be prepared for buffering and re-buffering issues.
