I see the scam is back, selling a device which '....gives you access to
free channels, which the broadcasters don't want you to have.'
It will do all it says, but it is just a cheap ineffective indoor
freeview antenna. It will get you all the Freeview channels and nothing
more, but only if you have a good indoor signal from your local
terrestrial transmitter. Absolutely nothing more, but you will pay them
an hefty sum for the antenna.
Its just the companies spiel, to get people to buy their product that
gets you nothing extra that you cannot get even better with a normal
rooftop TV antenna and a normal Freeview TV receiver.
It is a con which was identified long ago, but under a different
company name. A company selling 'a magical' indoor antenna, at a very
high cost, with a lot of technobable to try to present it as something
it is not.
What they are saying in their ad, is that the likes of Sky, Netflixs
and etc. would not want you to know you can get all these channels
(Freeview) for free. That you will buy their magic indoor antenna to
Not everyone has a technical understanding and the blurb is well
written so as to hide what the are actually selling. I doubt anyone
would get a refund when they discovered what they had in fact bought,
because it delivers exactly what it promises - extra free channels if
you are a subscriber to the pay services.
They don't. It's aimed at yanks who are probably used to getting a
certain number of channels over their cable connection, and have to pay
to get others, and aren't used to TV over an aerial, so don't realise
they have the option of free to air digital channels ...

the heading), adds credence, viz. unlikely that this site is bogus, since it's
