Windows 7: " Fancast "

11 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7
" Fancast "

I'm using a brand new 64 bit HP PC with Windows 7.
8 gig memory and 750 harddrive.

I'm curious about Fancast and being able to watch TV shows without so many stinking commercials.

Does anyone know if I will incur any negative side effects from installing necessary Fancast plugins?

I'm presently able to view YouTube videos,
Mostly watching concert footage from 60's and 70's

Had to look up Fancast before attempting to answer your question. All the different TV program providers have commercials in their presentations. This is because they have to pay the Networks for the media they are showing. The commercials are usually just thirty seconds for a total of about three to four minutes through out the feature. Compare that to regular Television you cannot really beat it; they are not charging you like cable or disk systems. Remember these sites do have to make money so they can bring you this programing free.

The Fancast commercial on TV is stating no commercials,

About my question,

May I possibly incur any negative side effects from installing the Fancast plugins?

Have any of you installed the Fancast plugins?
