Project Free TV | Type: Adware

Project Free TV is an online service provider, which allows legal copyright owners upload, store and display various types of media (tv shows and movies in most of the cases). Once this media is uploaded, people can watch it online for free at free-tv-video-online(dot)me. However, Internet is full of different stories about annoying ads that are displayed on this site when people are watching their videos. Some of them have even reported about sound ads and similar notifications that come from Project Free TV. It seems that changing the browser doesn't help in this situation, because Project Free TV ads show up no matter if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Why do I see ads when visiting Project Free TV?

According to Project Free TV, these ads belong to third parties that seek to increase web traffic and collect sales. The company in its Disclaimer claims that it doesn't have to take any responsibility for them. However, it seems that it hasn't blocked these ads for another reason – they help Project Free TV stay alive. We highly recommend ignoring all intrusive ads that show up when visiting free-tv-video-online(dot)me. No matter that they haven't been noticed to spread viruses, they may trick you into installing adware or PUP. According to our users, they were tricked into downloading Babylon Toolbar, Funmoods, Conduit and other potentially unwanted programs.

What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.

Symptoms showing that your computer was infected by Project Free TV:

•  Appearance of annoying pop-up ads
•  Appearance of banners and in-text ads
•  Redirects to unknown and suspicious websites
•  Changes in homepage and default search engine
•  Decreased speed of every Internet browser

Project TV is full of Malware. I open one show and it totally screwed up my computer. Wanted me to download new programs for no reason. Ive been cleaning it up ever since. Regardless of where it comes from when on this site you are going to get CRAP that will infect your computer. PIA....lots.

Project Free TV is just an aggregator of links to streaming videos-- They state pretty clearly that any pop-ups or suspect messages that show up whilst watching are from the videos original source and suggest you try a different link.

Since yesterday, April 17th, its impossible to watch any episode on Project FreeTV. I open the page and it immediatetly within a split second connects to:

https://search.yahoo.com/search?ei=UTF-8&p=download+abo+edo+auload+rek+flashplay&url=http%3A%2F%2Fdownland.aboedo.us%2FFlashplay%2FRek%2FDE%2Fauload.html%3Finstaller%3DFlash_Player_11_for_Other_Browsers%26browser_type%3DKHTML%26dualoffer%3Dfalse&src=toolbar&nrd=1&fr=slv502-

or
http://update.flashs-players.info/Player1/C/update-de.php?installer=Flash_Player_11_for_Other_Browsers&browser_type=KHTML&dualoffer=false


Ive tried it with various browsers, its the same with each. Ive been using the site for years to watch TV shows. and it always worked, however now its impossible due to the change of page. My Firewall and Virus Scanner alerts me each time that it is a malicious thread.

None of the ads come from project free tv. They come from the places the videos were uploaded to like VODLocker and allmyvideos.net. All Project free tv does is list where the videos are at. PFTv really does have nothing to do with it and also no way to block the ads from their side besides just removing the streams as a whole and then what would even be the point of having the site.

i could show at least 5 other sites that are the same way cause they use the exact same videos some have more some have less listed.
just get an ad block extension for your browser and poof ads gone (well besides one stream storage site that occasionally is able to force a pop-under past the ad blocker)
