  • Can this be true

    Had a quick look through some building materials websites when i stumbled upon this advert on a page. It looks and sounds pretty genuine, but to be on the safe sid eI thought i would post and see if any of you have this or have heard of it.

    Basically in a nutshell its offering a once in a life time fee of around £5 to watch all live sports, films etc.

    If this is true would be a huge saving on paying for Sky and cable, plus gives me a reason to get a bigger screen!

    Its called pctvpal I believe the company is in located Tulsa, Oklahoma and had only been going since early 2006

                Sorry I don't have more info. I had a link a few weeks ago that made it clear that all of these things were an attempt to make people pay for something which:
                a) sucks
                b) you can get for free

                For your money, they probably just send you the URL.

                    An alternative for you may be a free-to-air satellite receiver, which is ~$150 one time cost for a good receiver.

                    I have 2 "Viewsat" receivers with one fixed dish, and an motorised dish. You can theoretically get ~1400 channels here, in Europe I would guess even more selection.

                      I have tried my share of "scams" (almost always getting my money back) and done a decent amount of research on things like this. I have found if you have a company name... go to www.bbb.org and see if they are a member, or at least have any reports against them. This is almost always the first thing I do when checking on these companies.

                      2 things that stand out right away and would drive me AWAY from pcTVpal...

                      1.) The website itself. It "looks" like a scam site. It has the same catchy phrases and rediculous offers that make you scratch your head. It's lay out is very simple, which is the norm for scam sites.

                      2.) They do NOT list a company name, phone number or address. That's a HUGE no-no when deciding whether or not to buy. When they can't disclose that under "contact us" or "about us", that's a red flag.
