What is OutfoxTV?

From the publisher:
"OutfoxTV is a completely safe software application developed by our studio. It is certified free of virus or malicious code. We are able to provide online TV free through limited good quality advertising to help support the costs of development and hosting.

Upon installation we need to encourage users to view our website and use our application, to increase the amount of traffic and videos viewed, which then allows us to expand and add further channels.
