What is Project Free TV?

Project Free TV is an online service provider, which allows legal copyright owners to upload, store and display various types of media (tv shows, movies and similar content). Once this content 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 thru this site. In fact, some of them have even reported about sound ads and similar notifications that come from Project Free TV and redirect to predetermined websites. 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 web browser. Please, be very careful with these alerts because they may be filled with various links that may redirect you to suspicious and sometimes even malicious websites. Here, you may be tricked into revealing your personally non-identifiable or personally identifiable information or, in the worst case scenario, you may be fooled into downloading potentially unwanted programs, such as adwares and browser hijackers, to your computer. Besides, you should be very careful when downloading files from this service because they may be filled with various components and may infiltrate your computer unnoticed. In most of the cases, programs that are spread using such technique are categorized as adware and browser hijackers.

To sum up, Project Free TV is not harmful but it should definitely be used with an extreme carefulness. If you have been suffering from its ads, you should pay some time for checking your computer with a reputable anti-spyware. We recommend using SpyHunter or similar security software.

How can Project Free TV hijack my computer?

According to Project Free TV, its ads are caused by third parties that seek to increase web traffic to their sites 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 for Project Free TV to stay alive. We highly recommend ignoring all intrusive ads that show up when visiting free-tv-video-online(dot)me. In addition, you should be very attentive when downloading files from this site because some of them may be used to spread adwares and browser hijackers. In order to stay safe, you should select only Custom or Advanced installation method when downloading freeware to your computer. In addition, you should try to find all suspicious statements and uncheck them. No matter that ProjectFreeTV hasn't been noticed to spread viruses, its files may be filled with optional components and may trick you into downloading Babylon Toolbar, Funmoods, Conduit and other potentially unwanted programs. After that, you may start suffering from such inconveniences as redirects, slow downs and unwanted pop-up ads that may interrupt you during your browsing.

Comments on Project Free TV

Not amused.
Bullshit that the ads only come from the video uploading sites. As soon as you get on the main page or click a single link the ads/popups start. Use the search box, popups. Click the name of a show, popups. Thats not tied to any videos. Plus some of the popups then have popup alerts stuck in an endless loop when you click "ok", forcing you to have to quit the browser and reopen it.
i registered to project free tv how can i remove it
srsly guise
So why arent you ppl using adblock?
the best thing to do is pause the movie until the audio crap quits
yes project free tv really has annoying audio ads a and fact one is playing right now on my puter..the audio seems to be mostly crap to delibertly interfere with your movie viewing so they are probley hacked by big media companies trying to shut them down because they are free
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.
I went to this site. It asked me to download an .exe file. No thanks. Seriously cant be legit. Not subjecting my system to their garbage.
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:


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 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)
