Unless you have unlimited downloading, is easy to accumulate a huge bill from bandwidth overages! Videos hog bandwidth like crazy.

    been using majicjack for over a year, it's nice not having a phone bill anymore!


    as for the product she was asking about, i dunno, these things aren't always that great, and yeah you can view so many shows online for free these days, it's not even funny!

    This is not associated with Magicjack

    i never said the product she was talking about was associated with magicjack, just responded to someone's comment.

    in the second line i comment about the product the op was referring to.

    hope you didn't get too confused.

    Personally I have found that netflix supplies me quite well with TV shows and movies....no commercials. I think the 8 dollar a month fee is worth it. Its worth cancelling cable for sure. I have gotten worried about torrent downloading personally. I read that the government is allowing internet companies to release IP addresses now for anyone who downloaded the hurt locker in canada. Luckily I did not even know about the movie before I read about this change in personal information leaking. I think it is a matter of time before downloading is prosecutable here. Very scary stuff going on in the US.....watch out if you are downloading.

    Full blown scam
    I sent them an e-email:

    ok sounds to good to be true (so it probably is)
    if this truly works send me a limited trial of this software that proves ppv and all dish channels available
    and I will even send you $50 a year

    just some things that make me wonder
    - interact payment(just like cash no recourse like a credit card)
    - can't find anything about it online (if it is that good and as you have stated you've been around since 2005 it would be talked about all over the net)
    - your website is base on blogspot.com
    - your phone number just goes to an unlisted land line in toronto number (not a business number)


    and RECIEVED this as a response:

    Next time, you as for a trial....

    Make sure you do not bash the company, you are asking for it.
    If you actually read your website, you would know the answer.

    Please - do not waste our time, with your non-sense e-mail.

    Best of luck, and enjoy paying for TV.

    Considering ronwhite's experience, I hope you didn't use your primary email address to contact them.

    What's more curious is that you posted his links... STD indeed, and you're helping to spread it.

    Reality, as these services offer is a application or login/password to there site that is linked to free streaming websites. Nothing special. Not a scam as legal.

    All a person needs todo is search all there local stations for streaming and will see they get 60-70% access with no software needed to be installed. Premium movie channels usually have username and password from provider to stream online. I sub to expressvu and can stream moves at anytime to myself.

    MagicTVCanada has removed their previous blogs and is back with their own website. I won't post it but it ends in ".tk"

    Not one single positive review on these guys, not one. Only scam reports if you google them.

    Hi SFARAZ,

    I know this is an old thread....but my family and I are fed up with paying cable companies crazy monthly charges, and receiving nothing on tv. Can you enlighten me on what you use, or anything else that is out there. Also where did you get this USB for TV/internet
