Satellite Direct

by FirefoxRocks61 / November 8, 2009 5:15 AM PST

This is my first time posting to the CNET forums. I think this is the appropriate forum to post in and this is a question, not an intent to advertise something.


Has anyone used this before? If so, would you recommend it? There is not a lot of information on it, and the help file is vague in my opinion. There are three 5-star ratings at the bottom of the page but they are not linked to the reviews and I don't know where they are from.

It costs $55.15 CDN and I think it's one of those Internet TV services. Is it worth a try or no?

What does your gut feeling tell you? Mine says to "stay away". My logic says it just can't be done (get rid of my cable..I love to if I could, hehe).

Well first of all its www.SatelliteDirect.COM not .tv, that's a third party site. I haven't tried it but a client of mine has and says it works pretty good. They're always updating channels, some are blank but there's still thousands of them he said.

Satellie Direct... Pretty Good Track Record

Satellite Direct software package has a pretty good track record in keeping refunds to a minimum. I should know because I sell several of the top leading brands on the market today and have access to their consumer purchase/refund transactions as an affiliate.

I'm not here to sell or boast how magnificent this product is because it's really not, neither are the other top brands out there. But they do serve a purpose based on each individual's needs. Do these products really work? Let's say some better than others and some offer more perks and better feature enhancements.

The misconception is (which is a marketing ploy) that these products deliver free paid premium Satellite/Cable TV channels when in fact they don't. It would be illegal if they did. Satellite Direct makes that crystal clear on their website. I always say 'you get the next best thing to paid TV instead'. That keeps everything REAL.

But considering few of the downfalls, such as some channel blurriness at times, channels come and go, and a rare crash can occur on any given PC during the download/installation process, Satellite Direct seems to hold its own and one of the most sought after software packages (perhaps this has something to do with it being compatible to both MAC and PC.

In my opinion, if any one is seeking to try one of these products, it's better to go after a top leading brand. I don't entirely listen to what other people have to say (at least not all the time). Instead, I'll try the product myself after research and if it doesn't work for me, then I simply get my money back which I have done so in the pass.

Not very good

you can get the same thing that they sell for free on some other sites if you look for it. I did and found and it actually works.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
