Hi all! I have just completed a search of the forums for a Champtek
USB Internet Radio and TV Adapter and came up short.

Has anyone ever heard of this product and if so how does it work?
My main concern is with the 5000 television stations it claims to allow access to.

Here is a link to the product:

I can't find any user reviews on it. And, I can not imagine that this device works the way that I am thinking that it will.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hey, got an update on this thing. Figured I would share what I found.

I headed out to MicroCenter here in town and pick one of these dongles up for just over $20. Came home, plugged it into the PC and voila, a **** ton of pirated TV feeds from around the world.

Basically this is just a user interface and portals to feed of these channels. Simple to use and cheap. I was watching ESPN UK in a flash, but SKY had been taken down due to copy right infrindgment. BBC used the web player that they have on their website, so being in the states I could not access it.
As far as U.S. channels it is slim pickings. A hand full of local stations from around the country and some cheap movies channels.

Just thought I would let everyone know what I found since this thread has been blowing up.

:D
