Online TV Scams
Last Updated: Feb 02, 2012
I’ve put together, with your help, a list of scam sites that claim to deliver satellite video content to your PC. They do not offer anything of value.
Don’t pay for any “satellite” or online TV services from sites listed here. Most are likely selling free players such as Miro (formerly democracy player), TVU Player, SOP Cast or linking to free streams which you can get for free at live streaming third party sites such as wwiTV.com.

With many of these sites, you will see in fine print something like this: “We do not host or offer video content of our own”, which means they don’t have the rights to any of the content, and thus are likely selling free players with user contributed content. You are not going to get access to all the newest movies and live sports in HD, like they promise. Some even include viruses and other malwares.
There are very good applications out there, and they are free. Miro, TVU Player, and SOP Cast are some examples.
The scam list begins here.
