    I just found this by accident. It looks like software that connects you to a bunch of internet feeds of TV programming.

    I had been thinking about getting an external TV card. But they are expensive and I have Directv so there are other issues. I just want to catch the news or a show here and there. Would this iTube work for that?

    Is anyone using it? Any reviews? And is there any real reason to pay for this, are they just grabbing existing QT streams from the host web sites?

    Judging by their "list of channels" I'd say this program isn't worth it. I'd say all those are probably available on the internet for free if you look hard enough.

    My Dad bought one - he loves it. Yeah, if you wanted to you could dig around and find most of the channels on your own but it would take some serious Google-ing. If you have the time to poke around go for it - if you, like my Dad, have better uses for your time spend the $24.00 and get this.

    well, it looks like all the information on there you can find yourself, but if you have a life like me and want access to those 1500 channels without having to do the heavy lifting $24.99 ain't a bad price. all you are buying is time.
