Welcome to my Fun Stream TV Review.
One of the questions that we need to know is if the opportunity is a scam or not.
We wouldn’t want to join a program to invest our money and time to learn later on that it was a scam and end up losing all of the time and money we put into it.
We are going to take a close look at the information on the company, the products, and the compensation plan to learn whether Fun Stream TV is a legitimate opportunity that we can make money with for the long term.
I decided to take a closer look at this opportunity due to some online promotions about this streaming TV service and wanted to learn more.
With that said, let’s get started with our unbiased review and look into what the Fun Stream TV opportunity is really all about.
UPDATE: Was Fun Stream TV Shut Down?
Apparently, the Fun Stream TV company was shut down or closed, because I am unable to open their company website.
If you have any updates or news on why they closed or if I was mistaken, please let us know by leaving a comment below in the comment section.
Fun Stream TV Review – What Is It?
In this section of the review, we are going to give a brief overview of what Fun Stream TV is before we go into a more detailed description of how everything works.
First of all, Fun Stream TV is an MLM opportunity that will allow you to earn money by selling the service that they offer and by also referring others to the program to earn a percentage from their efforts as well.
This opportunity is in the “Cut-the Cord” niche which offers streaming TV service on an app or device that is compatible with the streaming TV service they provide.
After reviewing the program it appears that they do have everything in place to make them compliant, but there are some issues that I see which I will go into more detail in the following sections of this review below.
With that said, let’s dive down into the first section where we take a look at the company information.

Fun Stream TV Company Overview
In this section of the review, we are going to take a look at the Fun Stream TV company information.
When looking at the information that the company website offers here is what I’ve found:
- The company is based out of Great Neck, New York.
- The company business name is Fun Stream TV, LLC
- The phone number that is listed is 800-234-4103
Other than this information, this is all that the company website offers in regards to the company information.
The information on who owns or operated the program is not listed on any of the pages of the company site.
However, I was able to find information on one of the founders through social media.
I’ve learned that Joe Yagudaev is one of the founders and owners of Fun Stream TV.
He is also the founder of another company called Elite Profit System.
I’ve found information on possibly another founder, but I have not confirmed that information yet, I will update this information if I get confirmation.
That is really all I have on the Fun Stream TV company information with the information that I’ve found.
Let’s move on to the next section.

Fun Stream TV Products Review
In this section of the review, we are going to take a look at the Fun Stream TV product information.
Fun Stream TV is in the “cut-the-cord” TV streaming niche where they offer 2,500+ live TV channels that you can watch on a compatible device.
Some of the compatible devices include:
- Laptop or Computer
To get started you will need to get the app connected with a compatible streaming device and then log in.
If you need some installation help, I’ve included the instructions below in my FAQ section of the review.
When taking a look at a side-by-side comparison with a similar program I’ve found many of the same features if not completely the same as the IXQ TV opportunity that I reviewed a few weeks ago.
Many, if not all the same channels are included that IXQ TV offers.
Here is a listing of some of the channels that Fun Stream TV offers that I’ve broken down by category.
A breakdown of “some” of the live and premium TV channels:
- ABC (all channels many in HD)
- Nat Geo (all channels, many in HD)
- Children’s Channels (all channels (Disney, Nick, Cartoon Network, and more in HD)
- NBC (all channels many in HD)
- FOX (all channels many in HD)
- FX (all channels many in HD)
- and a ton more that are in HD…
A breakdown of “some” of the Premium TV channels:

There are a few steps to get the TV Streaming service that is provided by the Fun Stream TV opportunity that you will get instructions to below.
Depending on the device that you decide to watch the service will depend on how you are going to setup up that app on your device because it is all different.
There is one way to get the service without the need for an app, which is by accessing it through the direct website link.
Whether you join as an affiliate member or as a regular customer you will have access to the complete TV streaming service.
The only difference is with the opportunity and price.
The price will cost more when you join as an affiliate member but you will have the ability to earn money with the compensation plan the company offers.
Like I mentioned before, the navigation is similar, if not identical, to the IXQ TV program but in my opinion, the IXQ opportunity is a bit better in my opinion.
That is all I have for the Fun Stream TV product information, let’s move on to the next section.

Fun Stream TV Compensation Plan Breakdown
In this section of the review, we are going to take a look at the Fun Stream TV compensation plan information and how you make money with it.
Fun Stream TV offers an MLM unilevel compensation plan structure to earn both the residual income and the fast start commissions that the company offers.
You can earn both on customer sales and also on affiliate referral sales.
For those that are unfamiliar with how the unilevel compensation plan structure works, here is a quick breakdown:
- 1st Level – The first level of your unilevel compensation plan will only have your personally referred members on it.
- 2nd Level – The second level of your unilevel compensation plan will only have team members that your Level 1 members personally enrolled.
- 3rd Level – The third level of your unilevel compensation plan will only have team members that your Level 2 members personally enrolled.
- and so on…
I hope that gives you an idea of how the unilevel compensation plan works for you.
Now, let’s get to the residual commissions that you can earn from the unilevel compensation plan.
Like mentioned before, the residual income that you can earn is paid out using the unilevel compensation plan structure.
The levels of commissions that the unilevel structure offers are 5 levels deep.
Here is a quick breakdown of what you can earn monthly from the people that you personally refer, and also from your team members down 5 levels:
- 1st Level – The first level of commissions you can earn from the residual compensation plan will pay $15 per active subscription.
- 2nd Level – The second level of commissions you can earn from the residual compensation plan will pay $10 per active subscription.
- 3rd Level – The third level of commissions you can earn from the residual compensation plan will pay $5 per active subscription.
- 4th Level – The 4th level of commissions you can earn from the residual compensation plan will pay $1 per active subscription.
- 5th Level – The 5th level of commissions you can earn from the residual compensation plan will also pay $1 per active subscription.
**These residual commissions are based on BOTH “retail and affiliate” member sales.
Fast Start Commissions and Ranks
Another part of the commission plans that Fun Stream TV offers is a fast start bonus.
However, there is a “gotcha” that you will need to understand before you start promoting this opportunity.
The way that the fast start commissions works are that you will have to refer a few members before you earn it.
Additionally, the more you refer, the amount increased in both the commissions that you can earn and also by the number of sign-ups you have to refer.
Yes, this is a one-time bonus per the number of sign-ups you recruit.
You do not get paid from just one sign-up upfront.
So, with that said, here is a quick breakdown of the number of referrals that you need to refer to earn the 1-time fast start bonus that you can earn.
- Refer 5 Members – Earn $25 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Bronze.
- Refer 10 Members – Earn $50 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Silver.
- Refer 25 Members – Earn $100 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Gold.
- Refer 50 Members – Earn $250 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Platinum.
- Refer 75 Members – Earn $350 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Diamond.
- Refer 100 Members – Earn $500 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Green Diamond.
- Refer 200 Members – Earn $1,000 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Blue Diamond.
- Refer 350 Members – Earn $1,500 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Red Diamond.
- Refer 500 Members – Earn $2,500 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Black Diamond.
- Refer 1,000 Members – Earn $5,000 in commissions and qualify for the rank of Platinum Diamond.
So, when you refer 5, you earn a fast start commission, and then when you refer 5 more you also earn another one-time commission.
But then it jumps to 10 more that you have to sponsor before you can earn another fast start commission and so on.
Just be aware of that aspect when dealing with the fast start upfront commissions that the company offers.
In almost all the companies that I have reviewed, I’ve seen benefits when qualifying for a higher rank in the company.
The only status that I see as far as reaching a certain rank in Fun Stream TV is letting others know how many people you have sponsored.
Maybe they will release an additional benefit later down the road for reaching a certain rank in the company, but as far as of right now and with the information I’ve found provided by the company there is no additional benefit.
Summary and Comparison
I have mentioned another or alternative company that I felt was a bit better in the aspect of price and with the compensation plan which I stand by in my opinion.
However, I do feel that the compensation plan that Fun Stream TV offers is better in some aspects…
But, to earn those commissions, the company (in my opinion) had to increase the price by $10 overall including the retail price and affiliate member price.
That is all I have on the compensation plan details and how you make money with it, let’s move on to the final sections.

Fun Stream TV FAQ
In this section of the review, we are going to answer some questions that people may have when thinking about joining the Fun Stream TV opportunity.
Is Fun Stream TV BBB Accredited?
No, Fun Stream TV is not accredited with the Better Business Bureau at this time.
However, this does not make an opportunity a scam for simply not being accredited or listed on the BBB website.
This just simply means that the company is not listed.
There are many programs that have been around for many years that are not listed on the BBB and are 100% legitimate.
There are even some companies that offer services to manipulate the rating and review system that the BBB has to better a company rating so for me I don’t gauge whether or not a company is a scam by what the BBB information is.
I simply refer to the information on the BBB for additional company information and to compare the reviews and testimonials with other resources.
How Much Does Fun Stream TV Cost To Join?
The cost to join as an affiliate member where you have full access to all the streaming TV channels and also earn from the opportunity and compensation plan they offer will cost you $69.95 per month.
Join as a Customer
To join as a customer and not have the ability to earn from the compensation plan will be $49.95 per month and this will only give you full access to the streaming TV service that they provide.

Is Fun Stream TV A Scam or Legit Opportunity?
In my opinion, no, Fun Stream TV is not a scam.
However, there are some issues that I see that I don’t personally like about the opportunity.
I don’t like the fact that they have a $100 minimum balance on commissions before they will release your funds which is a big negative for me and I am guessing will be a big negative for most other people.
With that said, the company does have everything in place to make the MLM opportunity in compliance like:
- A retail product for customers
- And a fair MLM compensation plan
Time will only tell how this company will do in the long term.
Is There A Better Alternative To Fun Stream TV?
In my opinion, there are a few alternatives but to be honest, you will have to be the judge when comparing the various similar companies that are out there.
If I were to choose one program that I can make money within the “cut-the-cord” TV streaming niche where you can earn money by referring a customer and affiliate members I would have to review all the pros and cons and go from there.
My Final Fun Stream TV Review and Thoughts
In this section of the review, I am going to share my final thoughts about the Fun Stream TV opportunity.
Who doesn’t want to “cut-the-cord” and reduce your cable bill with more channels to watch?
I know I do, but is Fun Stream TV really the right option for you?
Overall, this opportunity does have everything in place that makes an MLM company in compliance so that is always a good thing.
There are way too many companies that try to skip on some of the necessary things that an MLM company needs to be in compliance for whatever reason which in many cases makes it a Ponzi Scheme.
I do like the fact that this opportunity took the time to make sure everything was in place to not have to worry about those issues that can make this program a long-term opportunity.
Time will only tell if the profits that the company makes and the program’s interest hold up over time.
However, compared to the other alternatives I described earlier, would I rank Fun Stream TV at the top of the list when it comes to the best opportunity in this niche?
No, I personally would not.
The issue with the $100 minimum payout you need before the company pays you is a hard pill to swallow especially for people just getting started out.
Additionally, the fact that some of the alternative opportunities that I’ve reviewed offer their service and affiliate program for less can be a reason for choosing an alternative.
But here is the question…
Would I recommend or join Fun Stream TV?
I personally would recommend this program as far as being a compliant program that you can earn money with, but not as far as the best one that you can choose to join.
Depending on where the company is at and what they offer, I might take a closer look down the road, but for right now I will not be joining.
With that said…
I hope you enjoyed my Fun Stream TV review.
