TornTV is considered by the specialists as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) and/or adware program which provide the user with free download services and broadcast content, advertisements and sponsored links. TornTV application is used to watch live TV broadcasts and to download media files. Torn TV comes bundled with different types of potentially unwanted programs or malicious infections. However, you could have downloaded the application from its official website – torntv.com as well. The site states that it is an application that will help you enjoy various worldwide channels. Torn TV is linked to Yontoo platform applications, including: Safe Saver, DropDownDeals, PageRage, and Deal Fairy. Once installed, TornTV loads unwanted advertisements. The PUP will show ads into all well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

Generally, users see different pop-ups, banners, search suggestions, sponsored link advertisements displayed on popular pages. You might also see a little button referring you to similar products which will be offered by the PUP. The search results can also be altered, displaying information loaded with spam and third-party advertising.

TornTV is usually bundled with other free software products and is installed by default, when the user accepts the EULA, while performing an express/recommended installation of that software. The possible distribution of TornTV varies, but is not limited to – installing third-party toolbars, free software products, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking on ads or banners etc..
