One look at an ad for Rabbit TV and one might think that the wheel didn’t quite go through a reinvention, but that it spins better than anything else in its class. This is kind of a nutshell description of what the device purports to be, particularly because it hammers home the notion of “free access to 5,000 TV stations”. Misleading advertising or clever marketing ploy?
Rabbit TV is a small USB stick ($10 online or at retailers like Walgreens or Walmart) that has been designed to simplify access to streaming TV shows and movies from existing (and legal) websites. It also throws in 9,000 Internet radio stations, too. To be clear, this isn’t access to some secret site that hosts everything under the sun on the sly. All it does is index the free content available through sites like Hulu, Netflix, Crackle, Spike TV, G4, the major networks and others, and lays it out in one user-friendly interface. The initial $10 cost covers the device and a year of service. It’s a $10 annual subscription thereafter.
Is Rabbit TV’s commercial and website shady? We’ll leave that for you to decide, but we do think it could stand to be more transparent in explaining how it actually works to aggregate and deliver the content. Vague advertising is nothing new in business. The Rabbit TV might come off as something of an infomercial but the product seems to be worth the price of admission for those who wouldn’t know how to get to the streaming content that’s already out there, and have no interest in learning.
