iTVMediaCenter: Scam or Brilliance?

 in

The folks at iTVMediaCenter recently contacted me about their one-stop-shop solution for cord-cutters. For $14.99, they sell a program that consolidates tons of on-line media into a central location so you can watch it on demand. The problem is, it looks like the application does little more than open the same Web sites you can open with a browser. Also, the "one-time fee" is rumored to be an annual fee. I can't verify whether the fee is recurring, but honestly, I don't recommend it either way. What I can recommend, however, is to visit their Web site!

Although the application is seemingly a bust, the Web site is free, and it does a decent job of linking to dozens and dozens of on-line streaming sites. If you're looking for some free on-line media, but don't know where to begin, go to http://itvmediacenter.com and check out the on-line offerings. I urge you to be cautious about the application, but I found the free on-line catalog to be very helpful.
