With the downloaded software you get : room list sorting/ viewing options, fast room changing, full screen video.
It's the full screen video in free chat which is the most attractive, and with their latest version you get text chat at the same time as full screen video.
For those that do decide to get further involved with the live adult cam models Peek Shows does have an option to purchase tokens that you can use to redeem for private webcam shows with the models of your choice.
To be able to enjoy all the services on offer from Peek Shows you simply need to register a free account.
Used to be buy 3 tokens and get 1 free from 5am-9am and 5pm-9pm PST every Tuesday is the deal, but now it's buy 4 get five. For models there is now an incentive program for models who attract new customers to the site -- should like an encouragement to poaching if you ask me but there you go -- it's 20% of the amount a new customer spends after the signup via the models dedicated signup page.
If you want even more good deals they are doing a lucky draw for 50 free Peekshows tokens every day and 1000 free tokens every month. Models can also earn 1% just for getting a new user to signup from their chatroom.
You don't have to though, you can continue in the regular chat by just going back to that screen.Peekshow has many sections under different names -- apparently at least some of these are separate companies running under the peekshows system.
