No, that's just classic multilevel marketing 101. Of course, many multilevel plans basically only make money for the people that start it, and the next line of people below that. The rest? Not so much...
Assuming this is legally licensed content, it's a great lineup for the price, forget the multi-level marketing aspect. No DVR, but interesting that they do offer my locals in San Diego. One of only three cities they currently offer along with LA and NYC. They also carry PBS, unlike every other live TV streaming service. I would never commit to a full year to get the discount and would only ever sign up for any streaming service if I could do a free trial.
Marketing pyramid and very shady. Disclaimer they have nothing to do with the content and you agree as subscriber you are not breaking any local laws. Then the fact you need to have someone already on the inside even to try. When signing up question #2.
I don't think this disclaimer is going to protect them from profiting by selling "access" to stolen/unauthorized content:
