Digital TV for PC

Anybody tried this out yet? If so, is it any good? It's supposed to be a one time charge of around $30 depending who you get it from. Then you have access to hundreds of channels, including local networks in your area.
Scam or ???

I've looked at it but haven't tried it yet. I'll try one day.....$29.99 is nothing, so if it's a scam it's a cheap one. This came from a product review, take it for what it's worth:

Digital TV for PC is worth looking at, especially if there are multiple international stations you want to watch from your PC. You may become frustrated by the number of channels that you can't view because of locality restrictions or simply because they are not broadcasting when you are online. However, with a little patience and the right timing, there is bound to be at least one channel you would be interested in viewing, making Digital TV for PC an entertaining application.

HULU is not the same thing, it's just videos. Digital TV for PC is access to live tv shows both domestic and foreign.

I bought a digital TV tuner for my laptop and it works well. Mine connects to a USB port and has a small antenna. In Chicago I can pick up all the local stations in HD and in analog. The one I have requires a scan for available channels in each new location and that takes about 5 minutes so not a big deal.

If you're talking about a streaming TV service I'd be wary. The quality usually sucks balls.

MLB.com streams live in HD quality.....I've never had a problem with it.

That's a bit different than what we're talking about AFAIK.

The OP was talking about streaming cable service for all of the normal cables channels and IIRC they are all pretty crappy in terms of video quality. Maybe things have improved recently but last I checked they weren't worth paying anything for.

I was considering this kind of service last month. Lifetime service for $30 fee.
Seemed to good to be true. Went back a couple weeks later to sign up and the site was gone. I'd be leary.
