Hi All

Being an ex-pat pom I was attracted by the banner ads currently doing the rounds here on Geekzone, so clicked on it and had a squizz. Having been there I'm of the distinct impression that this outfit is not completely (read: not at all) legitimate. I am fairly certain that the BBC, ITV etc would be fairly upset to find their channels being streamed around the world without their permission, and I'm extremely certain that UK TV licensing laws would forbid it (at least in the case of the BBC which is funded by UK license payers).

Does anybody know anything to the contrary about this outfit? Fantastic concept but wouldn't trust them with my credit card details that's for sure!

Steve

Why the fear over the credit card? Just do a chargeback if they keep taking money.
