Today not even traditional television channels can live with their backs to the Internet. With more reluctance than genuine interest, they have been forced to create online platforms to transfer their programming to the Internet.
In this in-depth Atresplayer guide we are going to discover everything that the multimedia player of the Atresmedia group offers us , one of the most powerful in the Spanish audiovisual scene.
It has taken years, but the Atresplayer player already offers interesting performance and functionality , although still at some distance from platforms that work exclusively on the internet, such as Netflix or YouTube.
To be honest, television groups, for advertising reasons, are still interested in you watching their channels through DTT , where they can broadcast more advertisements and are also paid more for them . So somehow their online applications are not exploited to the fullest so that they remain a second option, and do not become the substitutes for classic television.
Compared to other specialized proposals, the image quality of Atresplayer is a bit fair, but quite acceptable. Users complain that there is excessive advertising. You have to see at least three ads when launching any content, and sporadic ads appear in between as well.
