TV-MAXE on Ubuntu

TV-MAXE is an application which provides the ability to watch TV stations and listen to radio via different streams such as SopCast . Whether you are traveling or just live outside your home country , this application makes it easy to keep in touch with the latest news , weather forecasts , TV shows or movies.
For a better user experience we will be installing VLC before proceeding with the installation and configuration of TV-Maxe application . 

sudo apt-get install vlc

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:venerix/pkg 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tv-maxe



Go to "Preferences" and configure the internal player .




To add more channel go to "Subscriptions" and hit "Add".



The official list with channels can be found here . Click the link and download the .db file .


Once you added the list of channels click save . You can add all selected lists at once or individually by deselecting the ones you do not wish to load .

If you are trying to launch TV-MAXE and it closes right away , you may need to comment line 299 located in usr/share/tv-maxe/tvmaxe.py . To edit this file open a terminal (ctlr+alt+t) and type in the following commands :

sudo gedit /usr/share/tv-maxe/tvmaxe.py




Save and close the file and try launching TV-MAXE again .
