So what is TVTonic?
- TVTonic is not adware, and it is not spyware. It is a trusted application that uses some of the free space on your hard-drive to power a great media experience. TVTonic does not take over your resources. It only utilizes the disk space that you allocate.
TVTonic will regularly show promotional video for new channels that are available. TVTonic does not contain banners, pop-ups, or any other web advertisements, nor do we sell your contact details to anyone, ever. The only advertising you might see is TV-like advertising designed to support some of TVTonic’s free entertainment channels. None of our free channels currently carry ads, and if this changes we will tell you about it first. If you don’t subscribe to ad-supported channels, then you will never view any advertisements.
TVTonic delivers exclusive media files to your computer’s hard drive, where you can access them immediately with only one click of the mouse. Each day, by utilizing your high-speed connection, new files overwrite old ones. As a result, your local drive is always being updated with fresh content, your computer maintains optimal performance speed, and you have immediate, full-screen access to the content you want.
