I bought Satellite Direct a year ago and I’ve had no problems. You just have to dig into the software and learn how to use it before flying off the deep end and giving up. I watched plenty of Olympic coverage, as advertised, but I had to flip through the channels and sometimes settle for foreign language feeds. No problem. My friend got it recently and thought he was being scammed because it didn’t work well. Turns out his internet connection was too slow. He bumped up the speed and the software is working perfectly now.
As they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Many reviewers of Satellite Direct will tell you this is the answer to all of your entertainment needs. At Streaming Services Compared, we want people to select a product based upon true information that we share. The reviews that we feel are honest and not sales copy are mixed.
As long as you understand what you are getting, for $49.95, my opinion is it's well worth it, because you have an easily aggregated assortment of content available to you without having to search or visit websites that may harbor malicious malware. This alone is worth $50 to me.
Many people watch live feeds of content like the Olympics, or a huge event like a royal wedding, on channels made available via this software.
That being said, if you are an avid television watcher that enjoys lots of cable TV content and are looking to cut the cord on your satellite or cable TV subscription, or if you don't want to be tied to a streaming services subscription, this will likely be a disappointment.
Simply put, content that is highly valued is going to cost you. What you are paying for here is software, not content. As a side not, you get a ton of content, but don't think you're going to get all of the same as what you get when you pay $75+ a month. But if you are not an avid television fan, this is a great way to get good content for an unbelievably low price.
For countries that do not yet have streaming options available to them, this type of software just might be an entertainment lifeline for you in terms of accessing content online.
