    Thanks. I'm trying to keep my conversations twitter-size.
    TLDR.

    There are countless scams like this. This one is different because it advertises a physical product, instead of just a software bundle. But the result is the same: You are pointed to already-free internet TV stations that have nothing of real value.

    Yep, that's the thing. These shitty devices are everywhere. Makes you think, well if this is at every major retail store, then it must be legit. No, it's a fucking scam and the developers of this shitty device should be rewarded with a virus which destroys all their data.

    Here's another cleaver scam Rydian.
    I get a text message on my phone from "Best Buy". How the fuck they found my cell phone .... that's another story. Text message says "You've won $1000". Normally i would ignore this but a week ago i was shopping at Best Buy and upon checkout, dude over there says "here's your receipt and if you fill out the survey with the number on this receipt you'll win a $1000". So, i did not remember if i filled out this survey or not. But always being a skeptic i went into my sacrificial Windows 7 virtual machine (with snapshots) and i typed in the URL that was sent in my cell phone. And what do you know. The scammers had constructed an exact replica of the best buy site and they had masked their URL, but the status bar in the bottom of the browser or when you hover over with the mouse shows the true address. Average Joe would not know this so they would fall prey to credit card theft (because on the form they want your full address, CC and other info).
    I was like "hmmm clever scammer but you can't fool me because i used to work in the ponzi scheme called Social Security "
    Drum roll, rim shot.
