When you first launch FreeZ TV you are presented with what looks to be the starting button.  However, this is just an advertisement that will launch your browser and take you to another online TV service.

    FoxTV addon for Firefox is basically the same thing, but doesn’t have more bloatware in it.

    It runs in the Firefox 3.5, but you will need to install it manually on newer versions.
