NuMedia Review – Is This Business Opportunity A Worthy Investment?
Access 500+ channels, over 8,000 Video On Demand, 900+ TV series, and the opportunity to make money from home…
That is probably how NuMedia was introduced to you, and now, you want to know if it’s all true.
Well, for starters, you can indeed enjoy plenty of HD channels with NuMedia for only $49.95/month, and that is a steal!
NuMedia will also pay you commissions for every person that subscribes to their services and joins the company on your referral.
Nevertheless, there are crucial facts about NuMedia that tells me you might not want to get involved in this company. (I know I won’t)
Pardon me if I’m giving off such a negative vibe, but let me show you what I’m talking about in this NuMedia review.
Shall we get started?
Website: numedia.biz, 1numedia.com
Founder: Jim Ferras (aka Jim Pshehalouk, Jim Ferras Pshehalouk, and Ferras Jim Pshehalouk)
Price to Join Opportunity: $49.95/mth + $149 – $1,200
Recommended? No, because the company is selling pirated contents which is the main reason it got sued in the first place. You may want to check this out instead.
Overall Business Opportunity Rating:
Quick Summary: The main issue with NuMedia is that the company is selling pirated contents to customers. This company was previously known as TVizion until it was “acquired” by NuMedia Global LLC.
However, evidence reveals that the person behind the now shut down TVizion is still who’s at the helm of NuMedia, and sooner or later, this company will get sued and shut down again.
But don’t take my word for it and let me show you the proofs in the NuMedia review below…
What is NuMedia?
NuMedia, aka NuMedia Global LLC, is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company that provides streaming services similar to what your cable company offers.
On the company website, there was no mention of who owns NuMedia.
However, multiple sources names Jim Ferras (who also goes by Jim Pshehalouk, Jim Ferras Pshehalouk, and Ferras Jim Pshehalouk) as the primary person behind NuMedia.
Apparently, NuMedia was nonexistent until TVizion, a streaming provider promoted through the company 247 SmartLife, was sued by Dish Network in April of 2018 for copyright infringement.
So what does all of this have to do with NuMedia, you ask?
Well, as it turns out, 247 SmartLife and TVizion were owned by Jim Ferras. Jim Ferras neither confirmed nor denied the allegations of DISH Network. Instead, he shut down TVizion’s website amidst DISH Network lawsuit, which for me, says two things.
Its either (1) Jim already made tons of money that he can’t be bothered if 247 SmartLife and TVizion get shut down by authorities or… (2) the allegations are true!
I’m guessing it is the latter and based on the decision of the court, it seems I am correct.
In April of 2019, the Court entered a final judgment in favor of DISH Network against defendants TVizion LLC, 247 Smart Life, LLC, and Ferras Jim Pshehalouk and awarded DISH statutory damages of $5,959,000.
One month later (May 2018), a press release claims that NuMedia Global LLC now acquired TVizion LLC.
Coincidence? I think not.
Is NuMedia the new TVizion?
I think so. Looking at the old domain for NuMedia’s website (numedia.biz), it wasn’t created until June of 2018, just one month after NuMedia “acquired” TVizion.
And the now current NuMedia website domain (1numedia.com) wasn’t created until November of the same year.
It’s weird how a newly created company (NuMedia) would buy another company (TVizion) that has pending lawsuits.
Therefore, I believe that Jim retains control of the TVizion, it wasn’t really sold for millions, and simply re-branded it to NuMedia to shake off some bad rep.
If that doesn’t convince you, you can simply ask the person who introduced you to NuMedia, and I’m sure he’ll point you to Ferras.
As a matter of fact, Jim Ferras wasn’t even trying to deny that he is the NuMedia founder and even flaunts it in one of his pages.
And to provide you with insider info on NuMedia, here’s the personal experience of a previous member.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I personally wouldn’t want to get involved and do business with a company which owner has a criminal record.
And if this doesn’t bother you, your future customers and prospects might think otherwise.
But this is my own opinion, and you’re free to share yours too in the comments section below.
NuMedia doesn’t have a tangible product, but instead, it offers the same streaming services that TVizion used to promote.
For $49.95 a month, NuMedia subscription allows you to access 500+ channels, over 8,000 VOD (Video On Demand), 900+ TV series, and more. You will get all the HBO channels, NBA, news, etc.
As I mentioned at the start of this NuMedia review, getting all these channels and programs for a mere 50 bucks a month is a steal.
But how is it possible for NuMedia to offer you thousands of channels for only 50 bucks a month?
If you really think about it, it isn’t free to subscribe to a channel, and for you to get thousands of channels, it must cost you at least a couple hundred of dollars, right?
Sure, NuMedia claim that they have rights on streaming these channels, but the company fails to provide actual proofs about the said rights and agreements.
Furthermore, NuMedia even offers to pay you commissions whenever you can refer other people to use their services, so how come they can afford to provide these lucrative streaming privileges?
Someone in the other NuMedia review I found on the Internet explicitly pointed out the same thing.
So I came to the conclusion that NuMedia is offering pirated streaming services. It also makes sense why Jim didn’t bother defending his company on the court against DISH Network.
Now, this is a gray area because technically speaking, it’s not illegal to watch pirated streams according to the Copyright Act of 1976, so you won’t get in trouble if you subscribe to NuMedia.
However, would you support a company that operates illegally and leeches from the honest efforts of legitimate cable providers?
And let’s be real, do you really need thousands of channels?
NuMedia Business Opportunity
If after all the things I’ve discussed above, you’re still interested in making money with NuMedia…
Then you can do so by selling the company streaming services and by recruiting people who’ll do the same.
Cost to Join
When you subscribe to NuMedia’s $49.95/month plan, you automatically qualify to earn $10 for every person that you refer to subscribe to the plan as well.
But to earn residual and passive income from NuMedia, you’ll have to purchase one of the Promoter packs on top of your monthly subscription.
While I was writing this NuMedia review, Promoter packages cost $149 – $1,200.
The difference between the packages is the amount of voucher credits you get and your potential income while doing the business.
Joining with the more expensive packages gives you better commissions in this business.
This kind of business model is what’s commonly known as Pay to Play system, where you will need to pay money to join, spend more money to earn more money, and keep paying to continue making money.
NuMedia’s Recruitment and Residual Compensation Plan
Direct Recruitment Commissions – You will earn $10 up to $400 per person that you convince to buy any of the NuMedia plans.
30 Day Quick Start Bonus – During your first 30 days of joining as a NuMedia Promoter, you can earn up to $600 if you can convince 7-21 people to subscribe to the $49.95/month plan.
Unilevel Commissions – You will earn monthly residual commissions from all the customers and promoters under your team paid through a Unilevel structure.
In a Unilevel, all your personal recruits will be placed in your Level 1. The recruits of your Level 1 will be placed on Level 2 of your team, the recruits of Level 2 will be placed on Level 3, and so on.
NuMedia will pay you down to Level 7 unless you achieve a 4 Star promote and above, in which you’ll get paid $10 in your Level 1 and $2 down to 9 levels.
You achieve higher star rankings by purchasing the more expensive promoter packages and by recruiting other people who do the same.
Now, based on the NuMedia compensation plan above, you might think that making money with NuMedia is very easy and straightforward…
Except for the fact that the company is offering illegal services, and to which I think it’s about time we answer the question…
Is NuMedia a Scam?
Although you may get access to the thousands of channels that NuMedia promises in exchange for your monthly fees, I would still have to say that NuMedia is a scam.
This company is making profits by providing you services illegally, just like how it does in TVizion, and we all know how that ended.
If you go into promoting the business to other people after knowing these things, then you voluntarily take part in an illegal business operation. I’m sure you don’t want that.
Furthermore, even if you will be fine legally when it comes to copyright issues by streaming pirated content…
The problem is that your income in NuMedia (if you do make money with this company) can disappear overnight.
Is NuMedia shutting down soon?
It is 100% going to happen because NuMedia can’t provide illegal streaming services forever, and eventually, they’ll be sued again and forced to shut down.
As a matter of fact, this is probably the reason why while I’m writing this NuMedia review, Jim Ferras has already prepared backup companies like 7UP TV (7uptv.com) to fall back on should the authorities go after NuMedia too.
Yes, another company called 7UP TV is currently offering the same services that NuMedia offers for the exact price. Well, I can’t say I’m surprised.
Jim Ferras be like: TVision got sued, closed it, and launch NuMedia. NuMedia gets sued in the future, 7UP TV is up. What’s next, Jim?
The cherry on top, other than you’re likely to end up losing the time, effort, and money you’ve invested in NuMedia, you’ll also lose your credibility in your social circle.
What I’m afraid of is that when you do find a legitimate business opportunity in the future, you would have trouble convincing them to do business with you again after getting involved in NuMedia.
Well, these are speculations on my part based on what I know and the things I discussed above. I welcome you to share your thoughts too.
But refrain from unnecessary hostility and disrespectful words so we can have a healthy discussion.
My Two Cents
If you’d like to get access to pirated channels for $49.95/month and you’re willing to accept the fact that such services will get shut down anytime soon without prior notice…
Then you’re free to do what you want to do, but I don’t recommend it.
However, if you’re planning to join NuMedia because you want want to build an income stream around this opportunity, then I humbly ask you to reconsider your options because of the things I discussed above.
Making money by providing illegal services is terrible. But what’s worse is promoting such business despite knowing the truth.
But hey, once again, the final decision is in your hands. But I know you’ll do the right and moral thing.
And if a legitimate business opportunity that will allow you to earn a passive income from home is what you’re truly looking for…
Then I highly recommend that you check out this program.
It is the same program that turned me from a nobody to somebody online, and it allowed me to earn not just a part-time but a full-time income from home.
I’ve shared my early income proof here: 2015, 2016, 2017.
