Project Free Tv Vs Roku
- Post By Benjamin Linus
If you visit the Project Free Tv Website, you will find links to watch all your Favorite TV Shows and Movies OnlineProject Free TV is a very popular website that crawls the web and lists all the latest TV shows and movies online. Since this website does not host any illegal content and only links to other sources of this content on the web, it has been able to survive numerous take down attempts.
You would think this is all you really need to watch free TV. Unfortunately, not all is rosy with this website and here is why. If you visit Project Free Tv and don't have Flash installed on your computer, many of the video links will not work. Instead when you click on them the site will prompt you to install Flash. Most tablets and phones can't use Flash and many Internet security experts are even advising to remove Flash and not use it any longer due to increased security risks.
Some Project Free Tv users consider the website to be safe and have been using it to find and watch content for years. The website is only a directory and really has no control over the content on other sites they link to. Unfortunately most of the 3rd party websites that contain the video files are riddled with malware and other garbage and they try very hard to trick you into clicking onto links that will either send you to ads at best. At worst, they will download viruses, trojans or crypto lockers onto your computer that can make dealing with the aftermath on your computer a living nightmare.
While streaming is much safer and considered legal under current laws, downloading is not. Never download any files if you decide to use Project Free Tv.
Roku on the other hand does not use Flash, or download files. It streams file directly to your television from the Internet over a modified Linux OS, so malware is never a problem or something you will need to be concerned about.
Watching the same type of content on Roku is not be quite as easy and it may require a few extra steps to find everything you are looking for. Guidebox is a site that makes it easier to help you find where to stream content online.
