It was a link on something else and I can't figure out what it is. They claim that their $149 software marked down to $49 (when I went to leave the site I got a prompt that offers it for $29) gets you over 3500 channels to watch on your PC.

It looks like lots of over-the-air stations, maybe they just hook up to the live streams? It doesn't look to have anything to do with satellites.

Just curious.

Supposedly it's low quality(sub SD quality).

There are tons of reviews online with many calling it a scam.

Yes, it appears to just feed whatever is available through streaming sites. Great scam (or almost-scam) though.

Does it offer anything that isn't available free from many sites such as http://wwitv.com/ ....? (just one that I knew of from off the top of my head)
