Tv-Plug-In is a program that is supposed to allow you to watch television online for free. However, that is not actually the case because it charges an unspecified sum of money to work. Also, it has been configured to display annoying commercial advertisements in its graphical interface. Therefore, we recommend that you remove it as soon as the opportunity arises. Tv-Plug-In has been classified as a potentially unwanted program because it charges money for a function that is not guaranteed to work. In addition, we believe that it advertisements may come from unreliable sources; and they can pose a danger to your computer’s security. In this article, we are going to analyze this application in depth, so that you know what it is all about.
We have tested this application and got some interesting results. In addition, we have supplemented the missing information regarding its origins with that from third-party sources. So let us start with where this application comes from. Our research has revealed that Tv-Plug-In was developed by a company called Orzilia Ltd. This company is based in Kedar, Israel and we have no information suggesting that it is a company that develops malicious software. We have learned, however, that it is a company that creates potentially unwanted software which means that its software is more or less safe, but not considered useful. Nevertheless, we have found some interesting things about this software that you will find intriguing.
Before we move on to how this application works, we want to provide you with information about its distribution methods. We have found that Tv-Plug-In is being disseminated via a browser hijacker called Uppersearch.tk which installs it secretly after you install GoMovix Start browser extension for Firefox promoted by this hijacker. In addition, this program has a dedicated distribution website at Tv-plug-in.com that features impressive promotional slogans and promises. On top of that, it is also featured on Software.informer.com. All in all, this application has quite a few distribution channels. Three distribution channels are more than enough because most potentially unwanted programs are limited to only one and they spread pretty fast nonetheless.
As previously mentioned, Tv-Plug-In is supposed to enable you to watch television online free of charge. Now, you may be deceived by the Free Download button on its main website. The download can be free, but the application certainly is not. When you install this program it will tease you with its long list of channels from all over the world, but you are not always to even get a glimpse of things to come as you have to purchase Tv-Plug-In to enjoy its service. If you click to buy, then you will be redirected to one of many Internet addresses with long URL's. All of these websites look similar and they require you to create an account and provide your email address and create a password. Then you get redirected to Dollaplay.com/subscriptions/checkoutaff/m-2-panther. This is a checkout page where you have to use your credit or debit card to pay for this software. However, there is no price tag, so you do not know how much this application costs. You may find that it costs an unjustifiable amount of money, so we want to discourage you from purchasing it.
Lastly, this application might show commercial advertisements of unknown origin. This is because its developers want to make as much money as possible, and that is bad news for the rest of us because this means that this program is prone to promote unreliable content. In truth, this application will probably advertise programs similar to it — potentially unwanted programs — that are not malicious, but as this program will want your money in return for a service that might not even work.
In conclusion, Tv-Plug-In is a bad program that comes from an unknown software-developing company. Its owners use deceptive tactics, such as false advertising to trick you into thinking that it is free while not being free at all. In some cases, it might come with other software that will install it without your consent. So if you want to remove this program, then we have prepared a removal guide that will help you delete all traces of this program’s presence on your computer.
