Is TV Frog a Scam or Can it Really Replace Your Cable TV?

By | August 5, 2017

This company claim to offer revolutionary technology which will allow you to cancel you cable TV, but is TV Frog a scam or not? Find out here in my review.

I remember seeing the Facebook Ads some time ago for this device. They make strong claims that their TV box can replace your expensive cable TV subscription and this peaked my curiosity.

But is it a scam or legit?

About TV Frog, who are they?

The company is called Strong Current Enterprises Limited and they operate from a London address in the UK. They have an international telephone number and email address on their contact page.

The company claims to offer 100% satisfaction guaranteed. They also say if you aren’t happy with their product they will gladly replace it.

They have an exchange policy but no refund is available. Any returned products must be within 30 days of receiving your TV Frog device.

Does this sound like 100% customer satisfaction to you?

How does TV Frog work and what do you need?

Firstly, you need an internet connection. The box is connected to your TV via a HDMI cable and you can connect to your ISP either by hard-wiring or wireless connection.

It’s basically a plug and play media player and once you are connected to the internet you will have access to several apps including Netlfix, HULU, YouTube, Kodi, etc.

tvfrog-plugandplay

You can stream music, play games or watch on-demand content from an external drive. It comes with a wireless mouse to make it easier for browsing the internet.

What’s included in the package?

  • 1 x TV Frog device
  • 1 x Wireless mouse
  • 1 x HDMI cable
  • 1 x Power adapter

TV Frog Specifications

  • OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • CPU: Quad Core Cortex-A7 up to 2.4GHz
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8GB of internal storage
  • 4 x USB ports
  • 1 x SD/MMC port
  • 1 x HDMI port
  • 1 x S/PDIF port
  • 1 x AV input
  • 4K max. resolution

There isn’t much more information for the specs but already I can see they are nothing special for a media player. I always recommend at least 2Gb of RAM for streaming media content.

How much do the boxes cost?

  • 1 x TV box $99.94
  • 2 x TV boxes $91.79 each
  • 3 x TV boxes $76.50 each
  • 4 x TV boxes $73.44 each
  • 5 x TV boxes $68.85 each

So, almost $100 for one box which is way too much for an Android box with these specs.

TV Frog Reviews

They must’ve had a huge advertising campaign Worldwide because thousands of people are searching on the internet for this box. You can find plenty other reviews and most of them are not favourable.

There are reports of consumers being charged and never receiving the product. When they try to contact the manufacturer they don’t get a reply and are left out of pocket.

There have been so many complaints it even appeared on Snopes.com as a scam alert. Well, it was reviewed and theoretically defined as legitimate in the description of what it actually delivers.

tv-frog-snopes

However, it doesn’t give you access to cable TV channels in the real sense of the description. Sure, you can access these channels but you can do that just by using Kodi on any Android TV box.

To give you an insight into some of the bad reviews, I have included some extracts from unhappy customers.

“It’s just a scam, never worked and was returned…”

“Nobody should buy it otherwise you will be a loser like myself. I lost $79.94…”

“TV Frog rip off”

“Returned and never got refund”

“I have already given up hope on ever receiving this box…”

 

There appears be a lot of customers who have been ripped off buying this device. It’s a shame really because some consumers are not too familiar with Kodi or other free TV apps and are looking for a good plug and play option that doesn’t involve installing third party software or apps.

Alternatives to TV Frog

My advice to you: Buy a decent Android TV box and use Kodi or Mobdro to access TV channels. You can get a box with better specs for $50 to $60 and install Kodi yourself from the Play Store.

Some Android TV boxes come with Mobdro installed but fewer now have Kodi on them. Once you have downloaded and installed Kodi it will only be a basic version. I will explain what to do later.

The Android Boxes that I recommend

Any of the boxes below will be a better alternative to the TV Frog. If you click on any of the links below you will be re-directed to my review for each one and you can discover the best and cheapest place to buy.

Prices do fluctuate so please check out my reviews for the latest prices.

How to set up Kodi for accessing content

Installing new add-ons can be a bit of a pain if you are not familiar with how Kodi works. The easiest way to set up Kodi for accessing all of the content is by adding a custom Kodi Build.

This will add all the add-ons that you need and once the Build is installed you don’t have to do anything else. I use a Build called Cosmic Saints and it works great.

Check out option #3 on my other article for more information about adding a custom Kodi Build. I wouldn’t label Kodi as something that could replace your expensive cable TV subscription and there is a lot of legal wrangling going on right now over some add-ons providing access to copyrighted channels.

Some people do use Kodi as a cord cutter but in my experience it buffers too much especially when accessing channels that are in high demand. Plus, if you do intend to use it to watch Live TV I always recommend using a good VPN.

The system I am going to tell you about can replace your cable TV and at a fraction of the cost.

A Genuine Cable TV Replacement

When I discovered that I could watch channels from UK, USA and Canada with an IPTV subscription it was the catalyst behind this website and after cancelling my cable TV I wanted to share this with the World.

You get access to 200+ channels and they also have a 14 day catch up service on selected channels.

Conclusion

So, is TV Frog a genuine cable TV replacement or is it a scam?

In my opinion it is definitely a scam.

It doesn’t matter how you dress it up, they have hoodwinked customers into believing that they are offering something revolutionary. Clearly, it isn’t and they have been rather naughty with this half-truth.

    Hi Craig, Thanks for this review – I stumbled across the TV Frog advertising and thought it sounded too good to be true, so I remembered your site and came here to check it out. Clearly I won’t be buying a TV frog now! One question though – of the 3 tv boxes that you recommend in this review does it make a difference because I’m watching from Spain?
    Thanks 🙂

      Hi Soraya, you are welcome. Yes they did run a huge marketing campaign and a lot of people got burned with it which is very unfortunate. I am so pleased you checked out my review of TV Frog before you decided to buy it. Regarding the 3 x TV boxes that I recommend, any one of them will be fine for Spain. They don’t have any geo-restrictions but if you are using Kodi, you may find some channels are blocked. A VPN will get be able to unblock any of these. Cheers, Craig.

    Hi Craig, It is funny that I ran across this post about TV Frog and replacing your cable TV. My husband has been talking about getting rid of our cable due to high pricing but has never really taken the time to look into it.

    We have our cable TV and internet bundled and the company we have is local to our area. I tend to lean toward supporting local businesses just as I love supporting fellow internet marketers.

    I have never heard of this TV Frog but then again, I haven’t done much investigating different options. I will be sure to share this information with my husband when he gets serious about dropping our currant cable provider.

    I do have to say that I am NOT a bit impressed with their exchange/no refund policy. What would the exchange be? I have 4 TV’s in the house now meaning it would cost us almost $300.00!! If I didn’t work, I would want my money back pronto.

    Thank you for the heads up. I know this information that you provided about avoiding TV Frog and the other options that you provided will come in very handy when we decided to make the move.

      Hi Suzette, thanks for taking time to read my review and I am glad you did before deciding on an option to replace your cable TV. When I canceled my cable subscription it was also bundled with internet but I found another local internet provider and signed up with them for internet only.

      You are 100% right about the no refund policy. If the box doesn’t work or you are not impressed with it, what is the point of getting another one in any exchange? When you do decide to replace your TV system, I’d be happy to help. Just drop me a mail and I can point you in the right direction.

      Cheers, Craig.

    hey Craig
    I have been looking to substitute my cable provider for a couple years now, my cable service provider is also internet and phone provider I had given up cable and upped internet speed for better streaming for Netflix, online gaming and other sites however the company came in with a package that would have me using all 3 services for a little less than the amount offered for internet alone but I had to sacrifice Internet speed and got limited cable channels than the original too. The internet speed is bearable enough but could use more especially for online gaming too.
    They have since raised the package fees so I’m back to not having the right speed for the right speed price and still have to pay for Netflix .The recommendations you made have given me options and I will see which best which suits my pocket and of course will stay away from TV Frog.
    Thanks again.

      Hey Adrian, Netflix is decent at lower internet speeds and you don’t need as much as Kodi or similar free software. This is typical of the cable TV companies, once they get you on the hook they can start changing their pricing plans. If you are not sure of my TV box recommendations you could check out all of my TV box reviews and maybe find a better one that suits. If I can help any further just drop me a mail.

    Hi Craig,

    Thanks for exposing TV Frog, you’ve saved me a lot of heartache as well as money. I’m so glad I did some research and found your website.

    I’m a British expat living in Australia and I wondered if any of the three alternatives to TV Frog will work here.

    I love British humour and would dearly like to have more TV channels to choose from but I can’t afford cable as I’m on a pension.

    Would it be just a one-time purchase or would I need an ongoing subscription? I already have a VPN.

    1. Craig Post author

      Hi Marion,

      A lot of people didn’t read any reviews and were stung by this company so I am glad you didn’t make the same mistake. Any of my alternatives will work in Australia and if you use an app like Kodi or Mobdro there will be no additional subscriptions.

      Good news that you already have a VPN subscription, it’s important to keep yourself safe, especially in Australia now with the surveillance powers that your government have now.

    Thanks for the review, I’ve been looking at TV frog. I’m in the US and the we have a whole laundry list of products that provide live streaming and some of them work better then others. To be honest… most of our smart TV’s coming with access built in for streaming netflix, amazon prime, youtube, hulu and more. AND some gaming consoles also provide access to streaming. Having said that… I found your review very informative because there is still nothing like having actual cable channels… sigh… but it’s been 2 years now since I ditched my cable tv and went just with internet access and we haven’t looked back! It is saving me $70.00 a month not having to pay the outrageous fees!

    1. Craig Post author

      Hi Wenda, yes there are many options for IPTV and TV Frog is just one of them, albeit a very poor one. In South East Asia a lot of countries are now using IPTV as their main TV system. There is no cable or satellite options. This is a good way to keep costs down or so you would think, but they still want to overcharge us for the privilege. People will look for alternatives, as I have done. $70 per month is a great saving so good for you!

    Hi Craig, thanks for this honest review. I live in China and recently they shut down the 2 remaining foreign channels showing on the TV as part of the on-going move to not show US films/movies. So an option like TV Frog would be useful.

    One problem here in China is the quality of internet I get, sometime is it really good 90Mb up and down and other times it is less the 10k upload and download. Really crazy. Also blocking of certain sites at certain times of the year is a problem.

    So one requirement that I would look for is the ability to download and store for a month so that I can still watch TV when the internet is bad.
    Do you know of anything that meets this need?

    Thanks again for this review. Alan

      Hi Alan, 

      It must be a constant struggle living in China with the internet censorship. If your internet is as unstable as that I would definitely recommend hard-wiring any device.

      A VPN will help you with unblocking any sites, I would definitely look into that. Regarding downloads, if you use Kodi you can download on certain add-ons and watch later. I usually do that when I am flying somewhere.

      It’s a great feature to have and the downloads don’t take too long compared to using torrents.

      Cheers,

      Craig

    I believe the more that Kodi gets scrutinised, the more you’ll see scams like TV Frog surface. People want access to shows that are “country specific” and the likes of BBC iPlayer etc is just, well, useless.

    Thank you for sharing the info. I hadn’t even heard of any Kodi alternatives until I read this. Really good info. Thanks 🙂

      Hi Chris, you are spot on with your analogy. People want plug and play too and Kodi doesn’t offer than unless you know how to install a Kodi Build.

    I see so many of these scam products that claim to be more than what they really are! It is so frustrating that these companies think they can get away with offering these products and then never delivering on their promises.

    I recently made the switch to cancel cable but I have been unhappy with my choice of box (and no, it wasn’t a TV Frog luckily!) Thanks for pointing out some of these other great boxes, I will go take a look at your reviews now!

    Thanks for this great review!

      Hi Chris,

      I am glad you found it helpful. I was a bit shocked when I discovered how many people had fallen for their sales pitch and been ripped off. The TV Frog box is nothing more than a glorified (sic) Android TV box with poor specs.

      More and more people are trying to cut cable but you need to choose the right box. The last thing you want it to end up being scammed with a box like this. If I can help any further just let me know.

      Cheers,

      Hi Andy, thanks for that. It’s true, so many people have been burned by TV Frog and their advertising campaign that was way off the mark in my opinion. Not only that but their poor product and customer support will come back to haunt them, I hope. 

      I don’t like it when companies try to hoodwink customers into believing they are offering something different so I will continue to write honest reviews when it comes to media players like this one.

    Hi, Craig. Good article. In this age of cord cutting, you have to be very careful of entering into any agreement with a new “alternative” to cable. The reviews are certainly not favorable. If you can’t access basic cable channels, then why get it? That’s what cord cutting is all about. Are you using an alternative to cable? We used Roku, but it was really tough getting local channels. Thanks for the info. Good job.

      Hi Warren,

      Very true! If their product actually did what it says then it wouldn’t be so bad, but so many customers can’t even get it to work properly and have had no replies from TV Frog Support team.

      The Roku boxes are decent and a lot of people use them. Getting local channels is always a problem but there should be other IPTV suppliers that offer this service.

      I use my IPTV subscription to access channels from UK, USA and Canada. I also have Android boxes that I use to view other media content online via apps. Between the two of them I always have options to get the channels I am looking for.

      Hi Samantha,

      I am glad you found this review first. Amazon is a good place to buy and they have a good refund policy so if you do have any problems with another box you can usually return it within 7 days. The TV Frog is now being sold on Amazon, they must have lost sales trying to sell them direct after all the bad reviews.

    I’m not sure about their 100% guarantee. It seems they will only replace it and no refund. To me that doesn’t seem 100% guarantee.

    I’m feeling this is definitely a scam after reading your review especially if people are not receiving the product. It’s pretty tough if you can’t even contact the manufacturer.

    I have 4 TVs and this TV Frog is definitely not for me and I’m very grateful I found your article … I’ve been looking around for something better. TV Frog is off my list.

    Thank you for checking them out.

    I recently went back to the UK to visit my folks and they had this. It was complicated to use and overall didnt do the job that is intended, which is to watch movies and TV series’. Couldnt even do that. Skipping, bad lag, horrible functionality. Some options worked, some didnt. I was very skeptical and told them theyd been duped.

      That’s very unfortunate Chris. I hate it when I hear about people getting scammed by companies like TV Frog. The box specs are not good enough and they have deliberately produced a cheap build and tried to scam people. Next time ask them to read some reviews before they buy any product that says it can do something revolutionary.

    Hi Craig, I found your product review very interesting . I am thinking to eliminate cable satellite companies and i am looking for alternatives. Thanks to your review now i saw that if i choose tv frog as an alternative you got the right and precise information to know information about the product and to look for another better alternatives.

     Base on the requirements looks great but the feedback of the people talk different. With those reviews is hard to trust on that product. Thanks for your interesting research about tv frog.

      Hi Luis, 

      There are plenty alternatives to TV Frog and you can choose from 100’s of different media players. You can also choose from free or paid IPTV services that will still be a lot cheaper than cable or satellite TV.

      I think you are right, reading the other reviews really hits home how bad this TV box really is. Not just the poor service but the actual box isn’t that great in operation. 

      Thanks for taking time to visit my site. I’m glad you are looking at eliminating cable and looking to IPTV as a cheaper alternative. It’s definitely helped me get the channels I want to see in UK.

    If somebody can’t give me proper information about a product I’m researching, the conversation is over, usually with me becoming very angry. At some point I want to get proper internet again and utilize Netflix, showtime, and all that.

    I appreciate your complete thorough review on a product I know now to stay clear of. I did some research just now and they basically repeated what you said. Being scammed out of hard-earned money is something nobody wants to deal with.

In the true definition of the word, it’s probably a bit of a grey area, but as far as I am concerned they are scamming people out of their money without being completely truthful.

      If you take a look at my recommendations you can’t go wrong. These will allow you to access Netflix and other apps.

    Also, it is expensive… but having something like this would be so cool! So, I’m really glad you have some more legit alternatives! Much appreciated! I’l probably be getting one soon… and I think the Beelink looks good for me so far! Thanks!

    Interesting product if it works. The overall cost is really not that much over the lifetime of the product use, but a customer would still have to purchase a monthly internet connect from a typical cable company or ISP, so this expense would need to be added in to the one time box charge. The overall reviews from customers who purchased this box DO NOT look good. That is what I look at first. Good Luck!

      Hi FSGlobal! Thanks for visiting my site.

      Yes that’s the big question. IF it works. an even bigger question would be, IF you ever receive the TV box! A lot of unfortunate customers didn’t even receive it and can’t get their money back.

    To be honest, Craig, this one sounded like a scam when you wrote about them operating from a London address but only having an international telephone number and email address on their contact page.

    It’s fine to have that sort of thing as an alternative, but not as the only option. It just looks dodgy and whenever I see something like that, it sets off the alarm bells in my head!

      I noticed that since they started trying to sell the boxes on Amazon, there is already bad reviews. This company manufacturers other products so they are taking a big risk trying to scam customers into buying this TV Frog media player.

      Best to avoid it.

    A great review about TV Frog and it helps me to choose the correct TV box.There are a lot of complaints about this box such as not received the box and the problem to update it.This kind of issue must not happen when customers have already paid the for the product.They also do  not refund the money, it is really a scam.I agree with you.

      Thanks Nabil, I think most people are now realizing how much of a scam it is. They do state that their are no refunds, only replacements, but that’s not much good if the replacement doesn’t work.

      Either way, they don’t seem to reply to any customer complaints anyway.

      Hi Alan,

      TV Frog ran a huge advertising campaign on Facebook but I don’t like when they use the word “revolutionary” when it isn’t. Clearly it’s just an Android TV box running free TV apps.

      An invention is a different thing and Facebook is great for reaching an audience geographically. It’s a great way to target traffic. I think their campaign was a big success – for THEM. Nobody else.

    Hi Craig

    Thanks for this very informative review. I’ve been looking into upgrading my TV channels for some time. I get Freeview at the minute and there is not a lot of choice and so I’ve been looking into alternatives and came across Frog TV. However, I’m always wary of anything that seems too good to be true because it usually isn’t, and from your review it appears that this Frog TV device is another one of those examples. I have tried to use Kodi but so far, have not been able to get it to work. Would it be better to simply take the plunge and sign up to Netflix or Amazon Prime?

      Hi Oliver,

      You are very welcome! If you can’t get Kodi to work you could try installing a custom build. That will allow you to access featured addons and it will take away the hard work of installing separate addons.

      I don’t use Netflix simply because it doesn’t offer live TV channels. You would be better of buying an Android TV box and signing up with an IPTV supplier and using Kodi or Mobdro to access VOD content.

      That’s what I do and it works for me. Hope this helps.

    Hi Craig, great article you got there, very interesting stuff. It’s the first time I hear about TV Frog – not being a native English speaker – and I must admit, I find the price of the box really really high for the services.

    I think it must be even more painful if they don’t receive the product as well.

    I discovered IPTV a few weeks ago, and I must admit, having no TV at home – yeah I’m more of a PC freak – that would be the best in my case.

    Nice review anyway, keep up the good work!

      HI Ben,

      Thanks for that. Yes, IPTV is a better and more affordable option compared to cable or satellite TV. The TV Frog tried to jump on that (no pun intended) but their product is no good and they have scammed a lot of people.

      With an IPTV subscription you can also watch TV on your PC. My supplier has an online menu full of TV channels.

    Hi Craig, I currently live in Spain but lived abroad and missing some UK TV shows and programs which are not available through my provider. Your detailed and thoroguh review has really saved me money and dissapointment, and will definitely check on the alternatives. Thanks for sharing this awesome review.
    Cheers

      Hi JL,

      You are welcome. I am glad I could help. If you sign up with my IPTV supplier you will need to go through White Label, not NTV since they do not operate in Spain.

      Steer clear of TV frog, it’s a total scam.

    Hi Craig,
    Thanks for writing such a “tell it like it is”, pull no punches sort of article. I really enjoyed that.
    Thanks for helping me realise that technology has moved on and manufacturers who think they can sell “old” technology for top $$ based on slick marketing are finding things tough due to websites such as this.
    Thanks for being so honest with your reviews.

      Hi GBIG,

      You are welcome. I’m just glad you found out about the Frog before being scammed like thousands of others. You are right, you need more than slick marketing to turn over a successful product.

    Thanks for that! I had seen the adverts and was genuinely interested in purchasing a box or two (or 5 actually for every TV in the house lol) though I would have only ordered one to see what it was like just in case it was rubbish. It looks like I’d never have found if cause it doesn’t look like people as even actually getting it delivered!

    I’m going to take a look at your IPTV review as my deal with Sky is about to expire soon. Cheers!

      Hi Del,

      Superb! I am happy that you found my article before it was too late. Yes IPTV offers so much more but this device won’t deliver on their promise.

      It’s best to look at alternatives.

    I knew it. I told a friend of mine about this program not too long ago. So glad I read this article.

    This program was being talked about at my job earlier today. I didn’t get all the details. But I got enough to make we want to look up some reviews on the program. I’m so glad I did. It’s not at all what it was sounding like at my job. I will be more than glad to show them this article tomorrow on break. This was a very helpful review.

    Hi Craig,

    Thank you for this in-depth review of TV Frog. I remember my husband ran across one of their adverts and suggested they might be worth trying.

    My spouse and I have been contemplating whether we should go with them because our current provider is getting too pricey for us. It’s a great thing we’ve been caught with other matters and have never really taken the time to make the purchase.

    I have never really taken the time to read reviews of this product until now, and I’ll share this information with my spouse. I’m pretty sure he won’t be impressed at all with their exchange (no refund) policy.

    We’ll check out the alternatives that you provided at the end of this review. We’ll likely go with an Android TV box and install Kodi.

      Hi Princila,

      Yup it’s good that you’ve been too busy to buy one of these boxes and that you took some time to check out reviews. There seems to be more scams online these days and I just got scammed with one recently, not connected to TVFrog.

      I should have taken more time to do my due diligence but the package looked so professional. Anyway, you live and learn! Take your time when choosing an Android TV box, there are some really good ones if you have a higher budget.

      Good luck!

    Thanks for the heads up on this box. It’s good to see that you are covering boxes that maybe dodgy ones.

    Reading the customer reviews certainly does show that it is a box to not bother with. I think though that the company behind this has probably made a lot of money with it already. And will probably continue to do so.

    But if just this review can stop some of the sales then that’s good.

    Thanks again Craig.

      Hi Owain,

      Yes I felt I had to write this review to try and highlight how bad this company really is. They may well have made a lot of money already but at least people are now aware that their product is not revolutionary. Thanks for the feedback.

    Hi Craig, you’ve just saved me my money and heart ache. I was looking at the TV Frog and thinking of getting it but decided to look at some reviews. Glad I did and found your website. Have had a look at your recommendations and decided on the Beelink…it has a lot of good reviews on Amazon that I like to see. A lot of 5 stars. Certainly learnt a few things here today. Thanks for your help.

      Hi John,

      That’s awesome. I’m pleased you decided to check out TV Frog before buying. This company have scammed a lot of people out of their hard earned cash.

      You will love the Beelink GT1, it’s a cracking TV box and it deserves good reviews from Amazon customers. You certainly get a lot for your money.

    Craig,

    The information you provide on your site is truly amazing. It has answered a multitude of questions which I had regarding many topics. This article about the TV Frog scam is very informative because many people are looking for an alternative to cable TV. It is good to know what works and what doesn’t.

    After reading about the TV Frog scam I clicked on your link relating to a genuine cable TV replacement, and I received a ton of valuable knowledge. I only wished I had found this article a couple of years ago when I was looking to replace cable. I never got a satisfactory solution even though I did much research, but thanks to you, I now have a better understanding of IPTV, and know now that IPTV with NTV is the right way to go.

    I also now FINALLY know what a VPN is, and how it relates to Kodi. Muchas Gracias!! I now know what to do. Thanks a lot for all this valuable information, Craig. All the best to you in your business!

      Hi Judy,

      Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate the kind words. I really started this site to highlight the different ways to get UK TV but I’ve always been interested in reviewing TV boxes so when I came across the TV Frog advertising campaign it really angered me.

      Trying to portray it as something that is clearly isn’t is not acceptable especially when some people are aware of TV boxes and what they can actually do. Anyway, I am glad you found my article informative and if you want a 3 Day Trial with NTV just contact me.

    I came across this post and thought, “Hmmmm TV Frog!? What is this?” I spend quite a bit per month on a package deal that includes my internet, phone service, and more channels than I could ever utilize. I thought maybe I could shave down my monthly expenses by going with TV Frog. But that was a fleeting thought!

    I’m so happy that I read about it here instead of somewhere else that may have mislead me! Thanks so much for your thorough review — It’s so easy and simple when you find ALL of the information you need to make an informed decision in one place. So thank you for that!

      Hi Courtney,

      You’re welcome. It’s ridiculous how much we spend on cable and satellite TV so I feel really lucky that I found an IPTV service that is a) reliable and b) consistent. The TVFrog media player is the opposite so I am also glad you found my review first.

      You could shave down your package, that’s what I did. I just have internet and basic package (the minimum allowed) and I use my IPTV service as my main TV system. Contact me if you would like a Free Trial.
