Is Satellite TV on PC a real deal or scam

Have you ever wondered what is most commonly discussed topic on the Net forums about deals like Satellite TV on PC?

It is precisely whether Internet TV on PC is a real deal or not ?

 It transpires that there are some people  on the web forum that claim how such softwares may not be lawful. Let’s  rationalise this in detail  . For example, there are many Louis Vuitton bags in the market, but not all are genuine and authentic . Therefore, very much depends on which version of the bag one has bought. Similarly , there are many softwares in the market that  claim  to stream satellite TV channels onto the PC.  a simple keyword search on the internet will reveal many “free” softwares as well as some that require a small premium to be paid  . You are advised  to be very careful here.  Sure there are many scams out there … the internet is full of scams in many aspects. However, they are also some valid and legitimate companies that have spent substantial sum of capital to  engineer   such a software that  lawfully   allows the  customers to indulge in thousands of TV channels worldwide . They warrant that there is no hacking or cracking involved.  As an indication of their genuinty  , they  normally   provide a 100% money back guarantee for all purchases of their Internet TV on PC softwares.

Let’s proceed to investigate the meaning of “scam”.  “Scam is defined as follows:

       A confidence prank, confidence game, or con for short (also known as a scam) is an attempt to purposely misdirect a person or persons (known as the mark) usually with the goal of financial or other gain. The confidence trickster, con man, scam artist or con artist often works with an accomplice known as the shill, who tries to encourage the mark by pretending to believe the trickster. …

       A ploy by a shyster to raise money.

       a fraudulent business scheme


                               Let us go on to study the definition of “Fraud”:

fraud (frôd) n.

There are 4 definitions of fraud that apply to the situations we describe:

  1. A deception practiced in order to secure unjust or unlawful gain.
  2. any act, expression, omission, or concealment that deceives another to his or her disadvantage; specifically, it is:
    • a misrepresentation, omission or concealment of some fact material to a transaction; and
    • it is made with knowledge (or the reasonable prospect that the perpetrator should know) that it is fake or is made in reckless disregard of its accuracy or falsity and
    • with the intent to deceive another and
    • that is reasonably relied on by the other who is injured

 Given the above  , it would be  tough to conclusively say  that many of the softwares out there are “scams” for the following reasons :-

  1. many of the softwares are legal (no hacking or cracking involved);
  2.  many of the softwares always fulfill their end of the bargain  i.e. clients are able to watch thousands of TV channels worldwide  with top quality pictures;
  3. there is no intent to deceive or mislead with the goal of a financial gain justified by the fact  that if the customer is not happy  with the software, the customer may within a  rather lengthy grace period  (usually 30 to 60 days) ask for a 100% money back guarantee, which  money back guarantee   in most cases will be given , thereby negating any form of intention to defraud nor any monetary gains on the part of the seller. The  disgruntled customer leaves  with no financial loss whatsoever.

 Backed with such guarantees and safeguards  , it would be very difficult to conclude  that such softwares are scams as afterall one gets his or her money back in the event of non-satisfaction with the product.
