Satellite Direct Scam?

Just a few months ago, I came across an ad for Satellite Direct.  While the concept of it looked amazing to me, the first thing that went through my head was Satellite Direct scam.  Like anything you buy online, I was a bit skeptical to say the last.  Another thought that went through my mind was “is Satellite Direct legal?”.  Both of these things were concerns of mine, so I had to do my research.

I was so tempted to buy the product right then and there.  I was living in Europe for 90 days on a work assignment, and my favorite football team was playing a really big game later that day.  The idea of downloading software that would let me see this game right away was too good to be true.  I was still skeptical of a Satellite Direct scam.

So, I spent the next few hours reading up on the product.  I wanted to make sure that the quality was good, that it had as many channels as advertised, and most importantly, I wanted to make sure that Satellite Direct wasn’t illegal.

I was happy to learn that Satellite Direct is in fact legal and legitimate, thanks to something called the Free to Air protocol, which allows for mass viewing of local and national TV stations from all over the world.

I also read a bunch of different user reviews who praised the digital HD quality of the stations they watched.  On top of that, I saw a high profile technology magazine that gave Satellite Direct high marks.  Once I saw that a reputable publication was talking this software up, I decided that it was definitely worth taking my chances on.  As a Mac user, I was pretty happy to see that it’d work on both PCs and Macs.

I decided to download the software from there.  For $49 it was less than one month’s worth of cable.  Since I’d never have to pay for cable monthly again from there, I figured it was well worth it.

Anyway, within about 5 minutes from making my payment I was up and running.  All I had to do was download the software and install it.  It couldn’t have been easier.  The best part about it was that the product does work as advertise.  The picture was crisp, the sound was great, it didn’t freeze up or get choppy, and there are a ton of TV stations.  Plus, I got to see the Falcons win their football game that day :)

At the moment, there are 3,500 TV stations from all over the world.  No matter what country’s TV stations you’re looking to watch, there’s a good chance they have them.  From movie channels to sports stations to all kinds of movie stations, there’s just about everything you could want.  It’s all in DVD quality too, since it’s digital.

To be honest, I’m surprised that more people don’t know about this.  It seems like it’ll only be a matter of time before everyone has software like Satellite Direct instead of a traditional cable plan.

Here are a few of my favorite things about Satellite Direct.

  • After I paid $49.95 for the software, I never had to pay a dime again.  No hidden costs, no subscription fees.
  • I get more channels than I do on my cable TV plan.
  • I canceled my home cable plan.  I now hook up Satellite Direct to my 42-inch plasma, and I’m able to watch all of my TV on my actual TV now.  The quality is just as good as it’d be on a regular HDTV.  I wouldn’t suggest canceling your cable plan until you’ve had at least a few weeks to play around with Satellite Direct, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you ended up canceling yours too.

My final verdict:  there’s no Satellite Direct scam, this product is the real deal.  Lots of channels, high quality picture and sound, and it’s legal.  I hope you enjoy yours as much as I’ve enjoyed mine.
