NEWS

  • 10/10/2015: 1.5 'Kruger 60' alpha 3c is now available for download. It includes improvements in EPG, proxy support UDP / RTP, and other changes and enhancements.
  • The alpha 3c and the alpha 3b replace the alpha 3, as it has been discovered a serious bug in the installer that prevents the application is properly installed and that causes an error when trying to view the channels. The alpha 3 is no longer available for download.
  • 09/26/2015: We have detected a change in the way that Movistar sends certain fragments of the EPG. This causes the EPG downloader program to crash and close. Alpha 3 includes code to detect this situation and avoids this problem.

Brief description

This application allows to access Movistar television content (movistar+, formerly Movistar TV or Imagenio) from a Windows PC and schedule recordings of programs on the PC.
IMPORTANT! This program requires, necessarily, having contracted movistar+ in either fiber (FFTH) or DSL mode in Spain. The satellite connection is not supported. Nore information

movistar+ channels and services - DVB-IPTV (1.5 “Kruger 60” Alpha 3c)

NOTICE: This software IS NOT SUPPORTED NOR ENDORSED by Movistar or Telefónica. Telefónica de España has no responsibility if there are channels that can not be seen on the PC, even if they are part of contracted services. DO NOT EVER CALL 1002 or 1004 if channels disappear from the list or can not be seen or any other abnormality. Telefónica only provides help and support for their physical decoder and only for the contracted services.

What is this project

The focus of this project is to provide a "software" version of the movistar+ decoder, allowing to access the contents of the Movistar television in Spain (formerly Movistar TV or Imagenio) in any home PC with Windows. In other words, having a virtual decoder.

In the long run the final aim of this project is to create a virtual decoder that provides 100% of the functionality of the physical Movistar TV decoder while adding extra features and functionality.

What's available and what is not

The current version (1.0 update 1) allows for:
  • Accessing the list of available channels
  • Viewing the channels (using VLC)
  • Recording programs on the PC by scheduling VLC recording capabilities.
The following common features of the physical decoder are not available:
  • Filtering of channels (all channels are listed, irrespective of being available or not broadcasting)
  • Logical numbers of channels
  • Use of the EPG (Electronic Program Guide)
  • "On-the-cloud" recordings (viewing and scheduling)
What's on the radar: (short-term)
  • EPG (now available with v1.5 alpha 0 and following releases)
  • Filter by "package"
  • Improvements in the management of the recordings on the PC
What's on the radar: (mid-term)
  • An "integrated viewer" (instead of having to launch VLC to view the channels)
