Editors' review

We never know what to expect when reviewing Internet TV programs. Sometimes they provide access to a stunning amount of programming from around the world, and other times they are cluttered with channels that never load and end up being a colossal waste of time. Unfortunately, ChrisTV Online Free Edition falls into the latter category. Although it presents a wide array of channels from many different countries, most of them didn't work for us.

The program's installation process asked us for some personal information, including who owns the computer, how many people live in the household, how many children use the computer, our annual household income (none of your business!), whether anyone in the household is of Spanish or Hispanic descent, our race, and our ZIP code. We provided the information -- or some approximation of it, anyway -- and then the program finished its installation and opened. There's a long list of channels organized by country, but we found that the vast majority of them didn't work, giving us a message stating "The channel is not available at the moment. Please try again later." In addition to what the program refers to as Internet TV, ChrisTV also offers content from Justin.tv and Veetle, though we couldn't get any of it to load. The program periodically presented pop-ups asking us to upgrade to the Premium edition, but considering the poor performance of the free edition, we can't see ourselves forking over money for any version of this program. In the end, ChrisTV Online Free Edition was yet another waste of time.

ChristTV Online Free Edition installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal.

    "Complete crapware, installs third party malware"

    June 16, 2013   |   By Lisasmithnet

    Version: ChrisTV Online Free Edition 9.0

    Pros

    None whatsoever, would not even load!

    Cons

    Worst piece of crap I've made the mistake of ever installing on my computer period. When you try to run it, it immediately pops up a small window that says it's been updated with a link then closes. When you go to the link, there's just a big list of similar crapware and nothing "free". It installs third party malware that it LIES and says will be removed the first time you reboot -- NOT -- you have to go and separately uninstall the malware that remains AFTER you uninstall the crapware! and then reboot two more times to complete the removal. I then had to run spyware removal to finally get rid of it.

    Summary

    HORRIBLE - YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!!!
