    Hi,

    Wish I had a link, but don't, but hopefully this will be familiar to someone, apologies too if this is n't quite the right forum.

    So, what is it? Well ... it's an advert (on E Bay) saying pay £9.99 (now reduced to £0.99) & get in return files emailed to your PC which will then allow you, without any other equipment, to get free, unlimited access to satelite channels on your PC.

    The advert says this includes all the sports channels, plus adult content, & also claims to be "100% legal & 100% genuine".

    I'd assume it were total cobblers, but have had a friend claim it's good.

    Anyone know anything about this, any experience of it?

    Iam.

    sure you can risk £0.99 and report back.

    Don't get involved. I can think of many reasons not to do this - the main one is that its complete ********, and the other reason is you're giving someone your email address to use in whatever purpose they want.

    those files are probably full of spyware and viruses. It definitely sounds too good to be true.

    It's just rediculous, don't go near it with a 100ft bargepole. If they really had this why would they sell it for 99p?

    Also, have you ever watched TV on your PC, I've got a 2mbit connection and its still so far from being worthwhile its not true.
