StreamingWhereTV (Removal Instructions)

StreamingWhereTV is the name of a browser extension and search engine. Once the StreamingWhereTV extension is installed it will modify your existing internet browser settings. The StreamingWhereTV extension will replace your homepage, new tab page, and default search engine with streamingwheretv.com or search.streamingwheretv.com. Web searches conducted through the StreamingWhereTV search webpage will then direct to third-party websites such as trovi.com and bing.com.

If the StreamingWhereTV extension has been contracted your affected web browser will start-up on streamingwheretv.com when you open a new browser window or browser tab. The web searches you perform in the browser address bar will also redirect to streamingwheretv.com. This is valuable to the StreamingWhereTV extension and it’s developers because it allows them to generate revenue through advertisements and sponsored search results. The developer will essentially receive currency or commission from third-parties via cost-per-click ads and search results. The more internet browsers the StreamingWhereTV extension can inject, the more money developers of the browser attachment can potentially produce.
