I came across an ad to "turn my PC into a TV" where I can access thousands of channels worldwide. The website it directed me to was: http://www.affililat...g/tvo_azg2.html .

They say for only $30, I can download a program that will turn my PC into a TV. There won't be any monthly fee. It sounds fishy to me, but I thought I'd check it out anyway.

Can someone tell me if they are aware whether this is a legitimate service or not?

thanks.

i have no hard evidence on it..but...due to the fact that generally affiliate-101 sites involve those silly "if you buy these 12 things you can get this one thing for free" deals...and the fact that the website you linked, has absolutely no links to any other sections of the company's business (contact us, people who use this, tech support, etc...) i wouldn't be incllilned to trust them....if you really want to watch tv on your computer you can get a tv tuner card on your machine and plug it into your cable at home...

no software by itself can give you the capabilities of tv. it requires hw. an ati all in wonder or haupage tv tuner does wonders.

if you want to watch tv on your pc, check out the sites that cover microsoft media center. I also believe that Tom's Hardware and Anandtech both have some articles on it.
