Solved: TVChannelsFree.com
Dear Friends,
Recently I heard about TVChannelsFree.com. Since I don't have cable TV, and would love to occasionally watch a game on ESPN or Fox Sports, I checked it out. When I went to try ESPN, I got a message: "Please login via Facebook to watch this channel (100% free)" This made me suspicious. And then twice I got a very inappropriate popup with a woman on it inviting me to chat. This made me more suspicious.

My questions for my friends out there:
1. Have any of you ever used this before? Is it legit? Why would they want to have a Facebook login?
2. Is there a way that I can get rid of the popups if the site is otherwise legitimate (I accessed the site through Firefox browser - I have the ad-ons that cause me to never see advertisements for popups - this is the first site I have had a problem with using the Firefox browser and the add-ons and getting popups or ads)

I look forward to hearing from some of you!
Thankful

Never heard of it before. I usually just use Hulu, Boxee and Netflix for my video streaming. There are a couple other ones I have heard of as well but can't recall what their names are.

It is something I would stay away from it they want you to login.

Now it seems that it is part of facebook.

I do not trust sites like Facebook.

Sites that have popups for porn are not legit. It's that simple.

I did not see that porn but with hosts file and adblocker I may of been blocking it.

Yes turn around and walk away and don't look back because your never miss going to trash site like that and your computer will be safer.

Thanks Hewee and Helix,
I should have thought of these things. Everything you say makes sense. I am done with that site. I guess I'll have to go to my friends' house for my free ESPN :-)
Thankful
