    Default Streaming cable, this legit?

    So I came across this Ad on Kajiji today:
    http://www.kijiji.ca/v-buy-sell-othe...orts/562954328

    It says that you can get free TV channels for everything you want, so much that you can cancel your crappy Cable TV, and just pay once and use this.

    Is this legit at all?

    I was in discussion with my parents about getting much faster internet since I've started my career job and can afford it, and this would be a blessing if it is true.

    Does this really work, or is it a scam?
    There must be a catch.

    Yea its legit but it doesn't work well for English live tv. Its a box that uses a program called XBMC, you can download it right now on your PC. All you need to do is install the addons that he lists in the ad (such as Navi-X, mashup), and you can watch. I use it to watch live arabic tv, shows (although they are recorded but the list is updated right after new episodes air) and live sports. Didn't have much luck trying to watch western channels though. Try it before you buy it I say as it is a brilliant program but it might not be what you are looking for if you want live tv.

    Yeah, I've heard of XMBC, and have used it on my Pi. I thought it had something special to catch live tv signals, because that is what we would want to replace cable with. A device that could stream Live Television in HD instead.

    No it's just an extension of xbmc. Get the 1channel add-on and cancel your cable.

    Actually pretty nice. Downloaded xbmc just to try it out, cause I don't have access to a lot of american channels.
