Why are the max points per day always different?2019-07-08T19:25:27+00:00

Earnings per day fluctuate because the advertiser pays differently every day. For example, when there’re holidays or big sales coming up, advertisers would pay more. That’s why the max points are different everyday.

You can still use CHILI TV! During the setup process, click on “Cannot not find HDMI-CEC”, confirm that “My TV doesn’t have CEC”, then click on “I will turn on my TV manually”. Next, set a timer for us to remind you to turn on your CHILI.


Once CHILI is set up, you can just manually turn on CHILI by clicking on “Turn on CHILI now” in the app to earn points every day!

It sounds too good to be true – where is the money from?2019-03-15T15:27:25+00:00

TV advertisers spend over $700 on each American family every year (source). We want to send a good portion of that back to you!

TV advertisers like the idea too. As cord-cutting and ad-free services such as Netflix become more popular, Americans are watching less TV promotions. Advertisers are on board with us on sending you gift cards for more promotional screen time!

Can I have multiple Chilis installed?2019-06-10T14:43:19+00:00

We currently only allow 1 device per household.

How do I know if CHILI TV is working?2019-03-15T15:38:50+00:00

Your TV should automatically turn on everyday at the time you set, and your CHILI points will increase accordingly. If both of these are true, your CHILI TV is working perfectly!

What exactly will show up on my TV once I set everything up?2019-05-17T16:19:15+00:00

During the setup, we’ll ask you for the best hour to turn on CHILI TV everyday. Most of our users set it to 6PM, right after they get home preparing for dinner.

Then everyday at 6PM, the CHILI box will automatically turn on your TV through TV’s HDMI-CEC feature. The TV will then display awesome pictures of nature, news headlines, and promotions.

Does earning the points require me to purchase any goods first?2019-03-15T14:19:18+00:00

Nope, not at all. The points are earned through the CHILI TV platform. The points can be redeemed to PayPal credits or gift cards. Spend it whenever and wherever you want to 🙂

What if I’m already watching Netflix or cable, would CHILI TV interrupt?2019-05-17T16:25:19+00:00

Why is CHILI TV free to purchase? How does CHILI TV make money?2019-06-20T20:24:44+00:00

The CHILI TV platform partners with merchant advertisers and earns a small commission for delivering the promotions. Some of those earnings are passed along to our users.

CHILI TV box is free rental because we want everyone to be able to claim the rewards, so we subsidize the hardware cost. If the rented CHILI box is lost or severely damaged beyond repair, a $12.99 hardware fee may be incurred depending on the condition of the device.

To keep CHILI TV free and accessible to our users, and to discourage waste, if the device hasn’t been activated for 60 days since delivery, we would ask for the rented CHILI back or a $12.99 only hardware fee will be applied.

How much electricity does CHILI TV Box use every year?2019-05-17T16:42:47+00:00

$0.80/year – for an 40 inch TV, 30 minutes use per day, 11 cents per kWh. The exact cost depends on your TV model and your utility rates.

Below is an example estimate from a 39 inch LG TV. The $8/year estimate is assuming 5 hours usage per day. CHILI TV is on for 30 minutes per day and uses 1/10 of LG’s estimate. Hence the $0.80/year estimate.

How to send us your TV’s model number2019-07-29T20:23:16+00:00

Model numbers are usually a series of letters and numbers, like Samsung UE65NS9000T. They are at the back of the TV. The easiest way to send us your TV’s model number is to take a picture of the label and send it to us should you run into setup issues.
