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.

It is not only scam also fraud and false advertising crime
I had purchased today in canada and I reaised that all webs are not accessible or at all not exist
only for advertising that is accessible in canada this scamers should go to jail
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
DON'T LET THEM RIP YOU OFF!
A dozen e-mail responses to "lost password". All of them are dead links. Selling worthless piece of junk to get your money and to sell your personal info. Please pass the word.
Don't trust it!
Immediately it filled my computer with unwanted stuff , slowed my computer 100% and was difficult to navigate through. Their 24/7
help line charged a hefty price to "fix it". I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!
rabbit tv review
Absolutely a waste of $10.00. I installed went to the comedy channel and it was 1 comedian id never heard of from a 2007 youtube download. I uninstalled and returned to the store without problem however I have unsubscribed 3 times now and am still getting auto email. worthless product that I would score a -5 stars if it were an option.
Screw up my Dell 610 w/XP
I would try to simply copy a CD with my newly acquired Rabbit TV installed - no dice. Both Roxio and Nero would lock - REALLY lock - with no way of shutting either down. I would shut down Windows and reboot (this process took at least a 1/2 hour - whoa!) I tried this several times with the same result. During the last attempt to shut down, I took a guess, and unplugged Rabbit TV. Windows IMMEDIATELY shut down. Then I rebooted and copied a couple CD's normally. Rabbit TV was definitely the problem. No error messages, so I have no idea why it did (does) this. I am surprised no one else has written about this problem. I suppose I could just unplug it while copying CD's, but now my trust level of this thing is at zero. (Try it for yourself, if you don't beieive me.)
Trojan horse I do not NEED
When I discovered a Trojan being blocked by my anti-virus; I unplugged the RabbitTV and consigned it to the trash bin. A $9.95 lesson.
now i know i will not buy one
doesn't BETTER Business Bureau or some govt agency check
into these phony offers.why does our uncaring govt want us to
get cheated out of our well-earned money?????
DON'T BUY IT IS A SCAM
THEY JUST WANT YOUR INFORMATION, IT'S A SCAM TO GET YOUR 10 DOLLARS PLUS SUBSCRIPTION FEE
AND THEY ASK FOR TOO MUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION...
I WILL NOT RECOMEND IT NOT EVEN TO MY WORST ENEMY. DON'T WAIST YOUR TIME AND MONEY.
JUST SEACH THE WEB AND YOU WILL FIND THE SAME OLD MOVIES. REMEMBER IF IT IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE DON'T TRY IT.
Just got it from WM
I got this for my laptop with Win 8. It installed with no problem. Went to the site to look around. Haven't really used it yet that's why it only got 3 stars. That will probably change one way or the other.
As far a prices go, it's $10 a YEAR. The first year is paid for when you buy it. After that, if you don't want it, you just cancel. They have a toll free number. It may not be "live" TV at the time, but you can still be up to date watching a day later. And right now, since I can't afford cable or satellite, it's better than no TV.
IF you buy this, do so FROM A RETAIL STORE WHERE YOU CAN RETURN This "Possibly Faulty" product w/ ease!
My friend ordered online and when we installed it on her computer she got a "Trojan virus threat" and her computer shut down and would not operate the Rabbit TV at all. She also had her Facbook and email hacked within hours of installing this on her computer. She sent it back 4 months ago and still has not seen her refund of $150 back. BUY IN STORE or else they slam you with a $14 shipping fee, and $45 for "insurance". She was outraged and also was charged $1.00 a minute to call customer support which got her nowhere due to the heavy Iranian accent the rep ended up hanging up on her cause he couldn't figure out the problem. I would also like to point out that I am Certified in Computer Networking and Technology, so it was NOT an "Operator Error"... Enough said.
It would be all good if it worked it doesn't I spent 5-6 hours trying myself and over 2 hours with the online chat service rep they are slow to respond and keep u waiting between answering questions ..first thing they want u to do is make chrome your default browser ...why do u get a kick back from Google? it says it should work with explorer ... I finally tried the chrome default thing and it still doesn't work I am stuck on the sign in page and have never gotten past the u are signed in on another computer error despite unplugging and re plugging it ,switching browsers , clearing out all the cookies and catches and everything else the help people suggested ...I even deleted the program from the computer when I cleared out all the browser catches and cookies figured it would think it was bran new and make me sign up again but it must have some crap ( trogon ? ) hidden in my because it still recognized me .... I thought it interesting that since I cleared everything I had to use my password to sign into my-yahoo and I immediately got a message from yahoo saying someone in CA had just tried to sign in using the correct password ...so something u do steals passwords or opens up something to make us vulnerable to password theft (a trogon u reportedly plant?) it is a pain to change them middle finger salute to you for that .. bottom line u have great advertising and it would be all good if it worked but it doesn't Ill have to try and get my money back from Wal-Mart next time I go to town ... Hell no I wont return it to you so u can credit my credit card u aren't trustworthy enough to have my card number....
Don't bother buying one, even at $10.00 at Wally World. Very unstable software is installed (crashes quite frequently in Windows 7), asks for too much personal information, and the very frequent complaint that the $10.00 charge mushrooms to $70.00. Customer service is a f*cking joke. I am glad I could get my money back from Walgreens after buying that thing. Save your receipt. I'll guarentee you that you will be returning it within a week. Utter garbage.
Wanted to like it, but...
Thought it was a great idea to have someone else organize all the links for me, but never got it to work. Said it would work with Windows XP, but wouldn't work when I plugged it in. Went to the website and downloaded it from there. Then every time I tried to run the program, it would simply disappear. In a way I'm grateful. Freed up a lot of time to be doing more productive things. ymmv
The $10 ad is a come on. Basically they charge you $67 for collecting your personal info and reselling it to other scams.
You can find all the same radio and TV free with an internet search.
I wish I could give zero stars.
una mierda papa!!!
its a piece of crap!!! that simple ,after 30 mins of trying to log in it sent me a million times to the same page of enabling cookies etc etc . don't waste your time and money.
