About Rabbit TV
Rabbit TV is USB stick which, according to their website, promises to provide its users with free access to internet television, including over 5,000 television stations and 9,000 radio stations.
Purchasing the Rabbit TV USB stick costs $10, plus a $6.99 Shipping & Handling fee, or if you can find a store which sells “As Seen On TV” products, Rabbit TV will cost a flat $10 fee for annual use. If you choose to continue service the following year, you will be charged another $10 annual fee.
Potential purchasers of Rabbit TV often wonder “How does it work?” Well, instead of providing you with direct service from a cable provider, you are given access to a system of websites which feature full television episodes.
All you have to do is insert the USB stick into any computer device in your home, select your home country, and then choose the television show you want to watch. The website promises that installation only takes seconds, and there is no limitation on how often or how much you watch.
When it comes to internet based television, many people first think of smart boxes, or products like the brand name Roku. When comparing Rabbit TV vs Roku, the first thing you should know is that Roku – or other smart boxes – are stationary. They connect your television to the internet and give you access to television through paid for providers like Hulu or Netflix.
Since Rabbit TV is a USB stick, it connects to any PC, desktop, or laptop, so therefore it can travel with you wherever your electronic devices do.
However, real customer comments show many complaints that Rabbit TV simply sends them to a variety of websites which offer partial episodes, or partial seasons, since these websites are not considered full service providers like the networks you have access to when you subscribe to cable, or alternative providers like Hulu and Netlix.

Personally speaking, I was scammed..
I bought Rabbit TV about a year ago. I tried it on 4 different computers and used 3 different web browsers and it never worked. I contacted customer support & they told me to return it to where I bought it (Wal-Mart). Wal0Mart wouldn't return it or exchange it because the package was opened. I received an email today from Rabbit TV informing me that my service is up and being terminated but I can renew now for $10. I contacted rabbit TV and asked "What service?, I have never been able to use the devise and have tried everything possible". They told me that I need to pay $`10 to renew my service and then they will trouble shoot and figure out why it isn't working. I asked why they couldn't do that over the past year when I tried to use it? They had no answer. I told them I don't feel comfortable spending more money just to take a gamble if it will work or not being as I have never been able to use this and see it actually work. They said paying $10 was my only option. I told them I will instead contact the Better Business Bureau, Federal Trade Commission and Best Buy Consumer Reports and fraud... I know some say it is only $10 BUT.. as a Disabled Veteran on VERY limited income, $10 is a lot of money to just throw away for me at least... If I could afford to just throw $10 away to buy it and throw another $10 away just to see if there is something wrong.. I'd probably be able to afford cable TV...
Price is Right
I've been reading through all of bad reviews on here claiming Rabbit TV is a ripoff and/or a scam. Seriously? First off, Rabbit TV doesn't claim to own any of the content, if you look it up you can see they identify themselves as an e-media guide to all the Internets free content. For $10 this thing goes above and beyond expectations. If you were looking for something to replace your cable for only $10 you're dreaming, but Rabbit TV IS actually a useful product. Fantastic library of on-demand TV shows for a low-low price.
The Rabbit, the Wacky Wabbit
I ordered this device in May or 2013, got a Confirmation Order from the company but never got the product. I was reminded of this a few nights ago while visiting Fry's Electronics and seeing them being sold for $4.98 - TV or Movie versions - and I became both curious and furious. I did a search on my computer and found their official confirmation, got their number 855-235-2084 and I spoke with a low level employee who was extremely frustrating. I asked for the supervisor and eventually spoke with a Mr. Victor Wright - hope I got that right because his English was terrible - and he could not find my order in the system; could not provide me with an email address to which I would gladly send my confirmation; and he insisted that I give him my credit card information over the phone. He said they had no record of my order and that they could not help me. Yes, the device is a fake since it only provides hyperlinks to sites that already provide free movies. But to take money and provide nothing is criminal. Stay away from these sleaze-usb-wabbits; it's a rickety-wackety-racket.
Rabbit TV Blows
Such a waste of money. Anyone who has a computer and knows different sites to watch programs is doing the samething as rabbit tv does.Supposedly free tv with this, wrong.Some stuff would come up and would charge you if you wanted to watch it.
I've wasted money on stuff but nothing compares to paying good money for absolutely nothing
I first bought the Rabbit Tv USB plug in at walmart for $9.98 plus tax the first year it worked pretty good, I updated or renewed online for 5 years for $45.00 sounded like a good deal.
I had noticed after my first year Subscription had expired the drop down menu had a bunch of little white writing over it. I just thought it was because my first year subscription had expired But after it was reneed it still done it. I contacted their Tech support by email they sent me instructions on how to fix it. said it was the fonts were too large on my computer. I did everything they instructed me to do to the letter and still no good, They told me to send my USB plug in back to them I did that , first they said no defects in an email, then sent another that it was defective, this started on 12/28/2013 and its 03/07/2014. And still no t able to see anything. I have asked for a refund of my money several times now and I keep getting their BS and runarounds My Patiance has wore out
