Rabbit TV: Does It Work?

You have several options when it comes to watching TV.  Over-the-air is free.  But you'll have to pay extra if you want more channels.  That's why so many of our viewers wanted us to test "Rabbit TV."

The commercial says "as long as you have internet access, you'll have access to over 50,000 movies, and thousands of your TV shows past and present, even sports.”

We ordered the "Rabbit TV" USB stick and a one-year subscription.  We paid $33.98.  That included shipping and handling.

Bill Ramsey of Cybertron International was our tester.  It took him minutes to install the software and create an account with "Rabbit TV."  Bill browsed through the selections.  He said the shows are ones you can already find online for free.

"A lot of times, these have software written into them that go out and look at the website and pull that back, so you can look at that here and don't have to go to the website,” Bill said.

Bill said that's what happened here.

He also tried looking for one of his favorite shows using "Rabbit TV"--"The Big Bang Theory."

“It takes you to CBS.com,” Bill said.

Bill tried local news channels and sports.  Each time it took him to a website.

And those tens of thousands of movies?  Bill found "Slumdog Millionaire" on "Rabbit TV."  But you could too... at no cost.

"If you click on it, it will actually take you out to YouTube and you will see that it's there,” Bill said.

But Bill doesn’t throw the "Rabbit TV" down the rabbit hole.    

"There is cost advantage to $10 dollars a year to have them, so you can get them all from one place,” Bill said.

Does it work?

"That's a little hard to say.  It does get you the TV shows and movies that it says.  It doesn't do it in real time as it claims, so I'm saying 50-50,” Bill said.
