Rabbit TV Reviews

Rabbit TV is advertised as a way to receive over 5000 free internet TV channels and 50,000 movies from a simple USB device. Read our Rabbit TV reviews from editors and readers.

About Rabbit TV was registered on March 17, 2010. The cost of the USB unit is $10 per year plus $6.99 shipping and handling (reduced from 7.99 shipping in early 2013). It is available for Mac or PC, and they offer a second unit for another $6.99 shipping. This is a subscription service, so keep in mind that if you purchase Rabbit TV – and find yourself not using it – they will charge your card the following year after you have long forgotten about it.

Rabbit TV can now be found in stores such as Walmart or CVS.

How many “good” channels are on Rabbit TV?

Keep in mind that you are buying access to “internet TV stations” and not traditional television channels. Also note that the 5000 number they keep tossing around (it was 2000 in early 2013) is heavily padded by foreign channels of low quality and interest. You also shouldn’t expect to find much unique content that you can’t already access. Many of the “channels” listed are dead links or merely descriptions of shows, without links to actually watch them.

Rabbit TV Software

We found the Rabbit TV software to be lack user friendliness. The navigation system is confusing and clunky, and you’ll often find yourself staring at a menu in another language. Some of their menu options point to websites that no longer exist. One more than one occasion, the software froze or locked up the computer completely. Problems with the software are so widespread that typing in “Rabbit TV” in Google will yield a suggestion of “Rabbit TV not working.”

Here’s the Rabbit TV commercial:

You already have this content

Rabbit TV doesn’t provide you with anything you can’t already access. Yes, all of these “internet TV stations” are already there for you to watch. All Rabbit TV does is create a rudimentary menu in order to find them, and even then you will have a hard time finding much quality content. If you want to watch the best of internet television, you can simply visit such websites as Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, and official websites of your favorite shows or news stations. For most viewers, that would mean about 50 websites or less. Why sift through 5000 foreign or non-existent websites on a confusing Rabbit TV menu when you can simply visit the websites for shows you want to watch in the first place?

Is Rabbit TV a scam?

While we wouldn’t classify Rabbit TV as a scam, we certainly do not feel it offers much value. A scam would imply some sort of deception or dishonesty were taking place, and Rabbit TV is upfront about the cost and the fact that you are getting internet TV stations. 

Bottom Line

Rabbit TV is a rudimentary menu of video that can be easily found with any web browser. While the concept sounds great, this product delivers little value, and it is easier to simply browse the web for video yourself.

    It is a rather old product at this point, but you still may be able to find it in the As Seen on TV section of large department stores.

  • Jenn

    I love my Rabbit TV! It is amazing, especially when I’m on the go. I really love the classics section. I could never find good quality, full episodes of some of my favorite old shows like “I Love Lucy” and they make it so easy and accessible for me. And now I can even get it on my smartphone. I just downloaded the android app from my Google play store! I didn’t read any of these reviews before I purchased it and I’m glad I didn’t or I wouldn’t have bought it. Honestly it’s really sad when people who do not research things properly want to take out their aggression on the product because it “isn’t what they thought.” This thing is definitely worth $10 A YEAR! That’s less than a buck a month for them to filter everything for you and organize it so you just pick what you wanna watch, and go! I would highly recommend this product to anyone and it makes a really good (and inexpensive) gift!

  • Laura

    Rabbit tv is more trouble than its worth. Most of the links either dont work or take you to a link other than what you wanted. Many links tell you all about the show, but dont let you actually watch it. And if by chance you actually get a show to play, and you close the window, or even pause it more than a few minutes, the entire program freezes up. At that point, the entire computer must be restarted to get back to what you were watching. Not worth the trouble in my opinion.

  • Tana

    I purchased this product from a CVS store. They sell a lot of “sold on TV” products and their refund policy is a 30 day refund. No questions, no shipping or return fees. So I thought I would give it a try. DO NOT purchase this product. It crashed my computer in the blink of an eye (literally). I have a laptop that Is 1 year old. I work off of my laptop and had not backed it up in a month. (Laziness on my part) So when it crashed my heart fell. I started to cry. I had lost so much work that could not be redone. THANK YOU to McAFEE! My anti-virus did its job. It saved my computer to the last time I shut it off, which was the night before I tried Rabbit TV, so I did not lose any work. BUT, it did load 180 SPYWARE that I had to take off. Lesson Learned. NEVER AGAIN!

    • Howard

      Tana, Thanks for taking the time & effort to save others from going through all that heart ache you went through. I am one that you saved. Thanks. Howard

  • rename42

    Works fine for me and it was only a lousy $10 in a local store .

  • Saundra

    It’s a piece of sh-t that doesn’t work for me no matter which browser I use. I enabled cookies, adjusted settings, unplugged it, etc. The person on live chat help was of no use whatsoever. He or she told me to do the stuff I’d already tried. My bf uses his with no problem and loves it. Maybe my PC’s too old. IDK. All I know is it was a gross waste of money for all that cost, S & H and time waiting on it for nothing. I’m sorely disappointed.

  • proofed

    Hilarious especially that last line!

  • Irving Martinez

    I agree Rabbit TV is very misleading to consumers and should be investigated by the dept of Consumers Affairs, Rabbit TV is simply a guide like “TV GUIDE”,but the worst of all it is not reliable because it crashes frequently. I believe Rabbit TV was not serious about delivering a reliable product to the consumer. I am very dissapointed on Rabitt TV because one had the opportunity to deliver a better product if only one had taken more time to test “RABBIT TV” it conducted more testing on their product.

  • DanC

    Julian, well it is not really deceit. It does allow you to view internet tv. Internet tv is already free however and some folks might mistakenly think they are going to get content that must be paid for by subscription. Yeah, the vendor is relying on people to misunderstand what they are buying but they really state the truth that it is just internet tv and a fair amount of different internet tv channels.

  • Michael Petrillo

    It’s a complete waste of time and money! It will not load on any of my computers and they DO NOT answer their support emails. I put in a request over a month ago, in fact, 2 requests and still not one reply!

  • Wellergen

    Yes. 100% I agree. They have set up a call center in India and there the staff has no clue what is happening at this end of the world. DO NOT EVER ORDER THIS PRODUCT.

  • CouchCat

    If you bought this thing at The WalMarche, or Walgreens, or anywhere but from Rabid TV, relax. Rabid TV does not have a credit card number to continue to charge you after the contract expires. You can even take it back and get your refund. If you were dumb enough to order it directly from the scammers, good luck cancelling your “agreement”. They will no doubt put you through the ringer before cancelling your contract. And if you bought an “extended plan” or “premium creamy membership” you need to step away from the fone or PC and never use one again because you are a moron. LOL!

    • Anonymous

      Thank God (if he exists) and goodness that I did indeed purchase this little “Piece-of-Sh-t” USB device at Walgreens and NOT direct from TeleBrand(s)!! On Tuesday I’m taking it back to get my $10.75 back.

  • eric

    Lol.. these reviews are more entertaining to watch than the rabbit itself… Lmao.. no i didnt buy one or try it yet.. my friend did and he had a smirk cuz he knew it was a ripoff…sorry.. those who like it will have that positivity wear off after a week or two.. maybe three max… Lol that was a risk making the commercial for em.. but i guess the masses have to get over a clueless phase to smart shopping…

  • waffles

    Can you elaborate on your specific situation?

  • Cheryl J

    I picked up the product yesterday for $9.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond. I own a MacBook Pro and the install was explained in the readme.txt. Easy follow, I just had to install silverlight and that was pretty simple.

    Granted all this product does is gives you point and click links to websites that are already free to view, but honestly, I would of never thought to browse news links in different states and countries.. that’s pretty cool.

    Last night, the VOICE was on tv while I was on rabbit, I went to the link, and not bad, its just a day late. I don’t subscribe to Premium Channels so having access to the mini series on HBO was cool. I cant wait for True Blood! The only thing that I though was missing was a place for favorites.
    Overall, it was cheaper than a plate lunch at a wagon, so I’m ok with this.

  • The Techie

    I don’t understand why people don’t do their research before taking dollars out of their wallets. Don’t they realize that scammers and thieves are out there trying to make a quick dollar out of your ignorance and trust. THINK PEOPLE.

  • John Whitaker

    I purchased one, went about installing, got a warning from my ant-everything program, took the next step anyway and was asked one too many questions (DOB) that raises a red flag. I cancelled and returned it to Walgreens for a refund. When it seems too good to be true…
    I suspect this is a Trojan Horse offered by the government or business to allow unauthorized access to my computer.

  • Han Solo

    It probably just a program (program stored on a chip)that is set to run when you plug it in (auto run)and it updates channels from time to time. If the channels are INTERNET CHANNELS then they are just websites that anyone can access and watch programming. I have seen similar “offers” that don’t need a device to plug into your computer to get 1000’s of channels. If you get the free XBMC program you can get almost anything imaginable on the internet. Do you think any company can offer you ESPN, Discovery, Bravo, SCI-FI, and other premium channels LEGALLY for $10.00 a year? IF they offered those channels the owners of those channels would have them shut down in a New York second. Most all channels in offers like this are foreign versions that don’t speak English or are sub-titled. There are usually tons of shopping channels and religious channels and the network channels are local channels that only usually video of the weather. Also why would you need a chip to search the internet for channels when you can Google just as good? Ask them when ordering which channels they pay the media providers to allow you to watch those channels. The answer will be “none”.

  • RT Karle

    Having never seen the ads on TV, I picked one of these up on impulse while shopping in a large retail store. The packaging implies that the buyer would be subscribing to a video entertainment system that would correlate to the Magic Jack for the telephone.

    After trying it, I have to say that the Rabbittv people are engaged in deceptive and misleading advertising at the least and possibly fraudulent trade practices. All they are providing is a listing service, which is not as good as a Google search provides. I am contacting the retailer in an attempt to have this product removed.

  • Bob

    I bought one for my wife and I. I usually dont get all worked up over something especially mail order stuff. I was surprisingly amazed how well it works. Yes, you can get all the shows over the internet but its just as easy to plug it in and go without wasting time searching. I think its a great product. I’m more ticked off because it was made in China…why is it that the USA cannot seem to compete with other countries?

  • Anna

    I bought one today but i havent open it yet first I wanted to see the likes and dislikes,I think im going to return it back well I bought it at walmart.

  • Simon says

    Thanks for the comments. I don’t buy that!

  • Canada

    Most content not available in Canada. Very disappointed.

  • Pastor Pete

    Sorry, folks, but it is EXACTLY what it claims it is – namely, a website consolidator. I do not have cable or dish or any of that stuff. My wife enjoys movies, and I got this for her. Could I get everything without paying for it? Sure – but I’d have to FIND it first. My time may not be worth much, but it’s sure worth more than 10 bucks a year! Set up took about a minute, and my wife was watching the History Channel within 5 minutes. The picture is clear and I have NO problems and NO complaints. If it continues as it is, I’ll definitely buy the 5 year plan (for $9.00 per year). Also, I bought it at Walmart and had to pay NO shipping. In my book, this was a GREAT deal!

    • DanC

      Actually, there are free websites that do exactly what this rabbit tv does and you don’t have to pay any money at all like for example. If you use the Chrome browser by Google there are several free apps that consolidates internet tv through a dedicated interface also. I agree it is up to the individual but from what I hear rabbit tv does there are “a lot” of free ways to do the exact same thing including sites and apps that organize everything under one interface. Beware of installing plug-ins to view the various stations for sometimes they come with other unwanted programs added in.

  • DB

    How could anything be bad when it costs the same price as couple of jugs of milk or a few happy meals. You pay $10 once a year! If it gives you more than HULU does (hulu is free, not hulu plus), then you’ve already got more. There are many other ways to find programming online, but they don’t give you a programming guide. If you get a programming guide, you’ve just paid some money for the developers time to put that together. How can anyone complain and even have that much to say about something that costs $10 a year.

  • Paul

    I purchased the Rabbit a couple of days ago. I must say I was really curious to see how it worked. I wanted it for live sports mainly the NFL games. on a negative note, I must say that it is not what it says it is. Most of the major market channels are not listed and any games that are listed are games from last year. I was extremely disappointed because thats why I purchased it. On a positive note, I spent 10.00 on the darn thing. For this amount of money it was a no brainer. You get some good options like you would in Netlfix, Hulu and other channels. For the most part you get what you pay for. I’m not mad just disappointed. Over-all worth the 10 bucks.

    • proofed

      That was fair and objective and how I feel even though the marketing is deceptive, we should know that by now. 10 bucks gets u 2 cups of Star$ overated coffee, or a quarter of a parking space at any sporting event. 😉

  • Bobalou

    Intel is coming out with a new box for TV. It will be interesting to see what they offer.


    I bought 1 yesterday…I like it..I guess you cant be trusted. I bet you bought it called up your cable company and said TO HELL WITH YOU..I spent 10 bucks and the world is mine hahaha.


    KBroz In NO WAY would this replace your tv. Only a fool would think that. It is what it is…what do you want for 10 bucks ??? My time to search for all the content on the internet is worth WAY more then the 10 bucks i paid for it. You are pissed off because you were dumb enough to think you could replace your TVs with this. Don’t talk about how bad it is…talk about how dumb you are to think it would replace your TVs. Its 10 bucks…..You go ahead and search for everything that this little thing does. As for me…its the best 10 bucks i thing i have ever spent

  • brad johnston

    I love the promo video… it’s a mac macbok pro however the software they show as the operating system is windows! What joke this product is.

    • William Roe

      I have had Magic Jack since it came out. I have not had one single problem with it. As for this Rabbit TV and their support system, leaves a lot to be desired!!

    • The Techie

      I hope you enjoyed getting nickel and dimed by them.

      “as seen on TV products” are shams, that’s why I do my research before wasting my hard earned money on worthless stuff.

    • Temperlou

      Magic Jack is great. We had the original then bought the one that plugs into the modem. It has saved us big bucks. We got rid of our land line but used the land line number.

  • Linda

    Thanks, this was very helpful and I won’t be spending my money on this product.

  • AC

    My friend and I also purchased these and were pleasantly surprised. The interface is really easy and it has a ton of channels and live TV. Order process went without a hitch. For 10 bux it is definitely worth it. So trust ME – you will NOT be disappointed.

    • ACIty

      Hello, I bought this device, I didnt received what they promissed but for $10, I found the channels, stations or sites I never heard about it, Now I can watch them when I want it with or with out the rabbit device.

    • NotAC

      Hey AC!I mean Rabbit Tv rep..You are a scam artisit!

    • DanC

      It is your wrong opinion that folks will not be disappointed. If one is OK with paying money for what they can get for free then you are right. If you want to watch foreign free stations like me because I was a French major you might find some benefit and enjoy this. Most of this is foreign or religious tv or news or local access type stuff that is free over the internet anyhow. If that is what you want organized by an outside source so you can access it through a common interface then you will think this is great.

  • tiffany carmen

    I simply love my little bunny, this device is incredible. Grandma and
    Granpa love it, (yes they are tech savvy), little joe loves it, and even grumpy uses it every day. Buy one for the whole family. Thanks Wabbit.

  • MeandMe

    If you are looking for a cable replacement try XBMC. It’s free media center software that has add-ons that aggregate content from the web. Examples would be Youtube, Hulu, Vimeo, Grooveshark, Etc. There are hundreds of Add-ons for video, music, etc. Check out for details and instructions on how to set it up.

  • Gary

    I was scammed and charged for 5 years so a $30 charge became $101. The customer service was clueless about the product. I was not allowed to get past the first page. I am returning the item and requesting a refund as I purchased a 5 year warranty. I would advise everyone to STAY AWAY they are scammers and thieves.

    • waffles

      Wow – what did they say the $101 was for?

      • Mike

        The initial $10 is only for a 1 year subscription to their service. He apparently got suckered into agreeing on the 5 year plan.

        • DPX

          $10 at 5 years is $50. Where did he get $101? Did he purchase something else?

      • proofed

        Did the same to me except mine was $71 and change and 2 rabbits no charge for postage and “handling” as in picking your pocket. I raised hell and called my cc company etc. see full story below. Still haven’t tried it to see if it actually is worth the 10 bucks I paid walmart for it,

    • RECON

      Gary, As we say in the car biz…There is an ass for every seat. I paid 10 bucks for this thing,but to pay for 5 years before you even use it…that’s just stupid.Don’t go saying you got scammed…you are just not smart. You sound like the kind of person that buys a car battery and pays an extra 20 bucks to have it charged up before the install. anyone in sales should get this guys e-mail address…Gary wanna buy a bridge ???

  • ron

    You are correct “Rabbit TV ” is NOT worth crap. I called and spoke to some man that I could NOT understand when I asked to speak to someone else he refused. The bottom line I got screwed without enjoying it.

    • William Roe

      How did you find a number to call to talk with someone about problems ? I have a ticket number and was told someone would contact me . NO HELP received. Is this product a rip-off

      • william Roe

        After wasting two entire days on on-line chat, and following instructions given by two customer care reps and a top tech rep., with NO RESULTS I decided to chock the $10.00 up as a total waste and discard the device. Save your money and wait for a more proven product that has a free phone number to call for help.

        • Kevin

          Make sure you cancel the service or they will recur the billing.

  • Thomas

    From what I understand, RabbitTV takes openly available links from around the internet and condenses them into one site. Something I thought was pretty neat since I’m not too interested in what’s on tv today. I’ve been watching shows I grew up with from the 80’s and 90’s and I think it’s been just fantastic. Initially there were some log in issues but when I contacted their customer support, they were more than helpful and resolved the problem almost right away. I wouldn’t call this product the next alternative to tv but for $10 I was pretty pleased with the amount of content they had.

  • waffles

    Thank you for your helpful comment. We are also checking out ROKU and will probably post something here on it in the future.

    • Mike

      I’ve had ROKU for about 2 years now. Love it. Tons of free channels. Tons of subscription channels. Well worth it.

  • Kelly

    Wasted my money! What a piece of junk! It took 6 weeks to get to me and then it didn’t work when I received it called customer service they kept telling me to go to their website! What good will that do when the product is defective? After a long discussion with a very annoying man they would not refund my money only offer was to replace the crap! cancelled my order. Best advice is always read reviews for products before wasting your money.

  • John


    It is fun to think about replacing your $100+ cable bill with a $10 device. To think about it is free! If you spend $17 though you will crush your dream and have $17 less in your pocket.

    To me this isn’t a scam by any stretch. It is what one should expect from a $10 device.

    I hope some day TV costs drop. We went from free tv to it costing crazy money. We also have to watch more commercials.

    • waffles

      You make a lot of great points!

  • Tony

    I got one as well. I guess some people expect it to have live cable TV broadcasts (like Comcast or DirecTV), and they might be disappointed, but for what it is it’s pretty good.

    Most of the content is on-demand, not live, but they have all the same shows that you would watch on cable, plus a bunch of older and classic shows and even a decent free movie selection. Again, this is not live TV, but it keeps me entertained.

    Overall I’d definitely say its worth the $10 (plus s/h).

    • Bill shaw

      I got this also yesterday. It’s somewhat OK if you like to stream online stuff because I don’t have cable TV. I only have internet. I know the internet has free stuff for us to watch, but Rabbit TV makes it a little easier. Just to only one site and its there to view the streaming TV. I don’t work for rabbit TV.
