How It Works
Firstly I want you to be assured that watching TV online is legit and completely legal. This is legal because of what is called the Free to Air protocol. This allows viewership of local and international stations on the internet. This is provided from world networks that specialize in offering internet services.
Basically this means that Satellite Direct locates these channels and put them on their program for viewing. This is the same thing that the cable and satellite companies do, except Satellite Direct finds the free feeds on the internet for viewing, while the cable and satellite companies pay for the channels they have for viewing.
Yes, you heard me right, Satellite Direct gets their feeds for free. So you might ask, why should I pay them for something they get for free? Well consider it a finders fee. Because, even I would not know where to begin to even find 1% of the channels available. I think you probably would not be able to find them either. So paying $50 for something that probably took months to put together is ok by me. And its only a one time payment, if this was a recurring payment, then things would be different. So paying less than one month worth of cable/satellite services is definitely worth looking into.
