According to a review and test by InternetTvDotCom that addresses the question ‘does Satellite Direct really work’, shows this Web TV software had a 16% failure rate. This test was conducted from 6/23/2010 to 9/20/2011 with about 60 sales and 9 refund requests. But who’s to say it still has an 84% success rate.
There might be a bit of skepticism here when thinking the application only had one short successful period. Who’s to say that success remained the same throughout the year — no extensive test was revealed. In rare cases, Satellite Direct has been known to fail on some computers that are compatible.
As far as the latter, this could happen for a couple of reasons. One being the software fell short of the user’s expectation and the other where it just didn’t work. But again, no one can really say the application is a dud because the video demo shows that it does work.
Of course, there’s the matter of having the right Internet connection (preferably broadband) and meeting all system requirements that play into a workable product.
Once all the basic requirements are met, it still leaves a question will the application work with any Windows or MAC machine. What this comes down to essentially is trial and error, whereas these services are indirectly telling consumers either take it or leave it.
There is a free trial offer in place, but it’s more like looking under the hood of a new car where you can’t turn on the engine. In other words, the demo only lets you maneuver through the TV player to see channels that don’t play, countries, and feature enhancements.
After all of this, you are still left with does it work or not. Seemingly, there’s no way to tell for sure but there is way to get closer to the answer.
There is a work around to this that you want might try, and that is testing an actual free trial software similar to this one, before making a purchase.
This is an indirect way of testing and doesn’t exactly tell you whether the SatelliteDirect software will work, but it can reveal whether or not your computer is indeed compatible with similar products.
When downloading an ‘actual’ free trial this allows you to play all the available channels and radio stations, you get to see them in action. Not only that, but you will see the picture/video quality also. One downside is a blurry picture or ‘choppy’ video once in a while.
Also, there will be times when some channels (out of 1000s) will come and go — due to temporary down times by their providers or broken links, to name a few. But this issue is easily corrected by features that let you automatically scan for and update channels, as well as give you the ability to find and add your own within the TV player itself.
Seeing how the software (or TV player) delivers tons of channels as well as how well they play and appear on ones computer screen, go a long ways in determining whether or not to pay the small one-time fee for a top brand.
While taking the time to research this product further, it was discovered that it’s the #1 top seller out there, and rightly so — meaning it has the most worldwide searches, and yet it’s the most controversial.
Maybe the small one-time fee that comes with a 60 day money back guarantee by Clickbank is the deal clincher, even though newcomers still want to know does Satellite Direct really work.
Rest assure, Clickbank is a very reputable sales/refunds’ processor that makes the guarantee iron-clad and has a no-questions-asked policy to go with it
