We continue to analyze platforms such as Atresplayer, which allow us to view the content broadcast by the main television channels online. In this case, we focus on Mitele , Mediaset's online platform, which includes some of the most popular channels that we can enjoy with DTT, such as Telecinco, Cuatro, La Sexta and many more. Read on if you want to discover all the secrets of Mitele, and how to get the most out of it.
What is Mitele
Mitele is the online platform developed by the Mediaset company , which includes all the most important content of its television channels such as Telecinco, Cuatro, Factoría de Ficción, Boing, Energy, Divinity, Be Mad and the rest. This means that we can use this platform to view all the films, series, documentaries, reports, and all kinds of content produced by Mediaset.
Within Mitele we find programs as popular as La Que se Avecina, El Príncipe, Castle, Grey's Anatomy, Big Brother 24 hours and much more.
Most of the content offered on Mitele is freely accessible to all users, although this platform also has a section for renting and selling series and movies for registered users.
One criticism we make of Mitele is that it is a platform that includes a lot of intrusive Adsense advertising inside . In addition, we cannot deactivate this advertising through browser extensions such as Adblock, since if we do so, a pop-up window will appear, which will prevent us from accessing the content hosted on the platform.
How to use Mitele
The Mitele platform can be used in many different ways. The simplest thing is to access it through the Internet browser of our computer, although it also has applications to use this platform in a much more comfortable way, on both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets.
Something that we did not like is that the Mitele application for Android is not compatible with streaming devices such as Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV . This means that you will not be able to use your mobile phone to send content to the TV through these devices, something that is always very convenient.
The Mitele interface is very similar in all the devices in which we can use this platform, something that is important to facilitate the adaptation of the user, and avoid confusion when changing devices. In this respect Mediaset has done a great job and we have nothing to reproach.
As soon as we access Mitele, we find a large slider that occupies most of the screen, and that shows us the most popular content within this platform. Normally in this slider you will see the latest chapters of the series and the most important programs of the Mediaset group.
Above the slider we have a small menu that gives us access to the content that is being broadcast live , content that we can see in a delayed manner, and an option to register as members of this platform, and be able to enjoy some additional advantages
Immediately below the slider, there is a small section, which shows us the programs that are being broadcast on television, on all the channels belonging to the Mediaset group that are available within Mitele.
We keep going down and we find a great compilation of all the most popular content of the Mediaset group. The Mitele interface seems very attractive and intuitive to use in general.
Once we start to watch a program, the platform will show us three small advertisements that we can pass after approximately 5 seconds . This is a small price that we need to pay in exchange for enjoying most of the content on Mediaset for free. For longer programs, some advertisements may also appear while it is playing.
Advantages for registered users
Although it is not necessary to register to be able to use Mitele, it is interesting to do so, since we can enjoy some extra advantages , which are not available to non-registered users.
The first advantage that the platform offers to registered users is that the amount of advertising is lower , although without being eliminated at any time.
Another advantage that registered users will be able to enjoy is that they will be able to stop playing a chapter halfway, and continue hours later from the exact point where they left it.
Registered users can also create a list of all the content that interests them, so they always have a reminder of what they want to see.
A function that will be quite useful for the most clueless. To add content to your favorites list , just click on the plus icon that appears in the upper right corner of the window. This will add it to your list so you never forget to see it.
Lastly, Mitele offers parental control for registered users. This tool will be especially interesting for users who have children, as they will be able to restrict access to inappropriate content for their age.
Mitele's parental control is quite basic and is limited to restricting the playback of selected content, although it will continue to appear in the user interface.
This parental control has several modes , which we name below
- Without restrictions
- 7 years
- 12 years
- 16 years
- 18 years
Parental control operation is very simple, after choosing one of the above modes, the service will automatically restrict inappropriate content, and will ask you to set a PIN code . At the moment in which an attempt was made to reproduce the restricted content, the service will request the introduction of the PIN code.
So far our special article on Mitele, we hope you find it very useful to make the most of the possibilities of this great Mediaset platform.
