    "Not what is promised. Not live TV in most cases. SCAM?"

    December 27, 2009  |   By JtJt12944

    Pros

    The interface looks promising. Looks professional (but isn't).

    Cons

    Most of the listings are either NOT live TV (at best) or incorrect (at worst). Recordings are in correct time to FOOL YOU into thinking they are live.

    Summary

    Looks to be a scam to me. Glad I didn't pay for it. Most of the listings are either NOT live TV (at best) or incorrect (at worst). For example, History channel is something from another language, not historical. Canadian news is merely recordings from either Halloween 09 or September 11, 09. Recordings are in the correct time to fool you into thinking they are live. On news channels the reports are form the Summer (I'm writing this review in December). I cannot get any of the BBC listings to work correctly. Most of the local listings are for weather broadcasts from the areas, no other programming. Any actual live programming from overseas (in languages other than English) had ads running across the bottom. I don't think the program is worth $1.75 myself. After checking online for other reviews on this and other similar programs, it appears that they are all scams. Beware.

    well... I think it's unfair to classify a free trial software as "SCAM".. by definition, a free trial is provided to users without payment to enable them to thoroughly test the program features before purchase. If you like it, you buy it. If you dont like it, you uninstall it, as easy as that. Am I wrong?!? Personally I totally enjoyed the free trial, and I eventually decided to get a license (lifetime for 29 bucks...). So far I am satisfied. Honestly I can't see your point and I dont understand why you are so bitter against this TV Player. Have you ever downloaded any other TV Player in your life? If so, you'll agree most of them are rubbish.. At least, this tv player provides you with tons of working movies and tv channels (LIVE, my friend, LIVE, just open your eyes). Take it easy and let me know if you will ever found any better TV player. To me this is the best so far. Peace and love :-) Matt
