How to find a legal internet tv program


The internet is growing at a faster pace. It has totally changed our way of watching tv. Now we can enjoy uninterrupted tv on our pc with internet tv. There are many sites available on the internet that are giving free downloads of tv shows, movies but beware of such sites as these sites are not legal and are made with the intentions to cheat you. They hack our personal information and infect our computer with viruses such as spyware, adware etc. There are also many cases of copyright infringement. So beware of such sites as nothing comes free in this world. We have to pay for getting something.

However there are many sites on the internet that are giving unlimited access to watch television online with a one time fee. You will get instant access to watch your favourite shows, movies, music after you pay your one time fee. But the problem is that there are many illegal sites available on the internet that are taking money from us by giving promises of their program but they actually comes out as a spam. So, be careful of such fraudulent site.

However, I can help you in finding the legal site. Following are the points that you should remember in mind while purchasing any online internet tv program:-

1. Always check that the website is providing a guarantee whether it be 30 days or 60 days. The websites that are not providing guarantee of their program are more likely not confident of their program, so be very cautious.

2. The websites that are providing guarantee may not always honour the guarantee. So always see who is their pay processor. The program that uses third party pay processor such as paypal will always honour the guarantee because they have to follow strict guidelines as set by their pay processor. If they do not follow the guidelines as set by their pay processor then they can face suspension or even cancellation of their accounts. So, always look at the website pay processor.

3. The websites should be legally certified. They will always display logos of their legality such as better internet bureau, paypal verified, hacker safe, honest e online and many more. The websites that are displaying such type of logos are legally certified site and you do not be cheated by them.

So these are the points that you should remembered in mind while purchasing any internet tv program.

I have placed some the very highly rated internet tv program on my blog which are giving guarantee and also have a third party pay processor.

Good points, but following those one still easily ends up cheated. For example #3: any site can, and some will, place a logo where it says "we're clean, good, fair, verified and safe" and still not be that. More important than the signs of "being verified as safe" are actual certificates that can be verified by 3rd party people that are trusted; if a website (or somebody who claims to certify they're safe) isn't really known to you or you just don't feel you know enough, don't enter. Like you said yourself, the web is full of spoofs and there is no waterproof way to tell which one is right and which one is not. Therefore it's still sometimes a game of 50-50 chances - so if you put money in, be ready to lose it.
