SatelliteDirectTV Complaint - Ripoff

Review by Frank D on 2010-01-03
On December 30/09 I went our on a limb and bought the advertised software. Instead of live television, as advertised, I seem to have been downloaded something like a DVD. I get exactly the same results every time I access a channel.

CBC Newfoundland always gives me the six pm news from Sept.11/09. Australia always gives me a lady comic, on the same stage in the same clothes delivering the same lines to the same laughs. American channels are almost always unavailable. It seems that one must be in the USA to get the signal.

Perhaps I need to do something else in order for this "service" to function, but there are no instructions available that I have yet located. In short, If I can find a place from which to request my refund, I will do so at once.

I doubt that will ever happen, so that old ripped off feeling is my New Years gift from satellitedirectTV. My advice is to run not walk from these people.

This is nothing more than software that is a collection of bookmarks to sites on the web that stream live TV. Most of it isn't worth the time or trouble to watch as you have found out. You are not going to find the networks or the major cable channels just sending their feed out live over the internet for all to enjoy.
