GLWiZ review

Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

The app offers content in more than five languages and a user can choose any of these languages to see the shows accordingly. Once the language has been selected, the user is offered four major options which are based on the type of content.

There is a LIVE TV function that displays all the Live shows and programs going on at that moment is time. The radio feature of the app lets anyone listen to the local, as well as, international radio stations with the help of Internet connection. The app lists hundreds of TV series when the “TV Series” function is selected. However, the app displays the channels’ names first before listing down the shows. With the help of its Movies functions, one gets an access to a large number of classic and recently released movies.

The choice of “Video” and “Audio Only” is another great function that tags along once a channel has been selected to view its content. GLWiZ also offers ‘On Demand’ function which the users can use and order any content that they wish to see. 

Usability 9.5/10

The state-of-the-art application, GLWiZ, helps the Afghan, Assyrian, Kurdish, Persian, Kurdish, Chinese, etc. speaking communities to stay entertained anytime and anywhere with a simple interface. The app is a rich source of musical, cultural and educational content that cater to the different TV viewing needs of different people. 

Apart from its use to connect to TV channels and Radio stations, many use it to know the launch of any new TV series or release of any new movie. On tapping on any show or movie, the app furnishes you with information such as show’s rating, cast, genre, etc.
With its “Add to Favorite” feature, the users can utilize the app to save their most watched channels and most heard radio stations all at one place. 

Cross Platform Use 9/10

The app works well on Android devices and devices supported by iOS.  GLWiZ is also compatible with GLBoxHD Set-top box and SMART TV.

The Verdict

GLWiZ is a simple yet useful app that lets you watch multi-cultural TV programs. It also has more than 10,000 hours of movies in different languages that keep boredom at bay. The installation of the app is quick and the language can be set in just a touch. The team of Goldline Telemanagement keeps updating the app frequently so as to keep the app bugs and glitches free. With GLWiZ in your phone, you can carry your TV anywhere, anytime.

With GLWiZ in your pocket, keep yourself entertained with TV series and movies and stay abreast on the latest happening with the news channels and radio stations.

  • I'm so glad you reviewed this app. For a long time, I was using internet receivers as well as satellite dishes. I was crude, but the only possible way to watch Persian and Arabic TV at that time. I'm glad that now we live in times when the only things you need are GLWiZ Android apk and a TV. You don't even need a remote for your TV anymore, because everything you need is already on your smartphone. Very, very handy.

    • Well said, Sina. I've been reading a lot of GLWiZ reviews but only this one mentioned GLBOX compatibility, that's very convenient information. Having both Android and iOS devices support is a nice touch too. Personally, I like its huge collection of On Demand TV Series & Movies in Turkish available even in the trial version and my husband really likes that it allows listening to thousands of Arabic radio stations for free.

  • Thanks for the review, Todd. I know it's used mostly with Smart TVs but I prefer watching shows on my phone with this app before sleep. I'm glad you noticed GLBox compatibility, thanks to this I installed the app on my parent's TV, they were very happy about that. By the way, I was reading GLBox review on another site and there weren't any mentions about GLWiZ compatibility, what a shame.

  • Using this app for almost a year with my LG Smart TV and it works perfectly. Yeah, it has ads, but I think that's nothing compared to the amount of free content you get. Every month new channels and shows are added into the roster. I guess that's one of the best apps available for Afghan speaking people especially when traveling to other countries. That's why I have installed GLWiZ android version in my smartphone too, pretty handy.

  • I'm using GLWiZ Smart TV app since it was released in 2017 and I'm really enjoying it. The main strong point in it for me is Assyrian language support, that's a very uncommon feature nowadays. However, it has some ads too, but I think that having hundreds of channels at hand is totally worth it.

  • Great choice on choosing GLWiZ for Android as App of the Month. I'm using it only for two weeks but can already see why you gave it such high award. Using it mostly with my Smart TV, but I have an app for iOS as well. I would like to note a cool feature that this app also supports radio which is pretty uncommon nowadays.

    • I'm using GLWiZ Smart TV app too and I think it's very neat. I've been using IPTV for a very long time, but before this app was released there wasn't any way to find Persian and Arabic channels all in one place. Now it's possible and I'm so glad about it. My favourite channels are BBC Persian, Manoto TV and Irib Channel 3. I was surprised that it's possible to listen to the radio with this app too.
