Rabbit TV Reviews
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.

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.
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.)
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.
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?????
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.
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....
