My family and I love to watch TV and listen to the radio, but we were getting so sick of paying huge fees for cable and satellite radio services. We eventually decided to just go to a bare-bones cable TV package, which was fine, but I have to admit that sometimes we really miss having some variety in our entertainment.

A few weeks ago, we went on a family vacation with my sister, brother-in-law and their kids. The kids had a laptop and were able to watch all these great shows while we were on the trip…anywhere where there was a Wi-Fi connection, the kids could access all these great television and radio channels! My brother-in-law explained to us about Rabbit TV and how they were able to get thousands of channels, all for $10 per year!

How It Works

Rabbit TV is really simple to use. It’s a little USB device that looks similar to a flash drive. You just stick your Rabbit TV adapter into the USB port on your computer and it will automatically fire up. Once you register for your account, your browser will open and you will be taken to the Rabbit TV homepage which is where you can pick from tons of different TV shows, movies, live TV, and more. The interface kind of reminds me of Netflix or Hulu where you have a lot of selections right on the front of the page to choose from.

It works with both Macs and PCs, so as long as you have a wired or wireless internet connection, you will be able to use it. The installation takes seconds and you won’t have to hook up any wires or cables (aside from whatever you use for internet of course). You’ll be able to select which Internet TV and radio stations you want to watch or listen to right from your computer.

Another thing you can do is hook your laptop or computer up to your HDTV with an HDMI cable or VGA cord and stream all of the Rabbit TV shows/movies from your computer to the TV. Now it’s basically the same as if you were to watch the shows on cable/satellite!

Even if you don’t want to fully cancel your cable or satellite service, this product definitely allows you to downgrade your current plan so that you save some money each month. It’s also great for road trips, vacations, college kids who don’t want to pay for cable, and more. Think of it as a portable cable box that you only pay $10 a year for.

Here is a video review of Rabbit TV so you can see exactly how it works and all of the options available:


Pros and Cons

As with anything, you’ll find that Rabbit TV has its pros and cons. I think it is a great product, but you should get the full picture before making a decision:


  • One flat fee of $10 per year. No high monthly charges.
  • Lets you watch and listen to 9000 radio stations and 5000 TV stations.
  • No credit check or deposits needed for Rabbit TV and no need to return equipment at the end of your contract.
  • Watch TV or listen to radio from any computer.
  • Small enough to carry with you so that you can use it with computers at multiple locations.
  • Perfect when traveling: No extra charge for in-room movies!
  • Great for college students who don’t want to pay for cable TV service in their dorm rooms.
  • Get a Rabbit TV for every member of your household who has a computer, and there won’t be any fights over “what to watch on TV!”


  • Must have an Internet connection to use Rabbit TV.
  • So many stations means that you may have to spend some time searching for those that you want to access.

Where to Buy It

From what I’ve seen, the best place to buy Rabbit TV isĀ online, through their official website. You’ll get a money-back guarantee and the option to get a free second Rabbit TV for an additional shipping charge. Plus, you’ll get a $15 gift card that you can use on other “as-seen-on-TV” products which I thought was a cool bonus.

Final Recommendation

If you hate paying for cable or satellite television, get Rabbit TV and explore the many incredible Internet radio and TV stations that it offers. Or if you just want something to take with you when you travel, it’s perfect for that too. There are a lot of situations where Rabbit TV comes in handy, even if you’re not ready to completely cancel your cable or satellite service yet. All kinds of programming is available and you won’t have to schedule an installation or pay huge monthly fees.


  1. does the robbit also get premium channels like hbo and show time ?
    also can I purchase 2 sets of 2 for my whole house

    thanks karen

    • Hi Karen,

      With premium channels like HBO and Showtime, they require you to have subscriptions with them in order to access their premium content (full episodes of their series). However, Rabbit TV does help you find and watch episodes and seasons from these premium series/networks on an a-la-carte/pay-per-view basis. That is another cool thing about Rabbit TV is you don’t have to pay full price for premium channels through your cable provider just to watch 1-2 different shows. You can pay a much smaller fee through Rabbit TV to access just the ones you want to watch. I’ve been meaning to update this review to give more information on that aspect but just haven’t had a chance yet.

      Regarding your other question, yeah you can purchase 2 sets of 2 and use them for the whole house. On the order form, you should be able to set the quantity to 2 and then you will get 2 more free. Keep in mind though, the Rabbit TV device only plugs into your laptop or computer and not into your TV. So if you plan on ordering 4, you will need 4 computers to use them on. To watch the shows/movies on your TV, just connect your computer to the TV with an HDMI or VGA cord. Here is the link to the website again where you can take advantage of the buy one get one free offer:

      I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

      • can i plug the rabbit adapter on my tv if is computer ready?

  2. Is this a streaming device? If you have a weak internet connection does it have a slow play connection response?

    • Hi Tom,

      Yeah it’s basically a streaming device as it finds all of the shows/movies online and puts them all in one easy to access place for you (the Rabbit TV dashboard). So you will want to have a decent internet connection in order to watch them without any skipping or slow playing. I’m sure you will be fine as long as you have cable, DSL, or something along those lines.

  3. Your style is very unique compared to other folks I have read stuff from. I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this web site.

  4. bought 3 rabbits at retail store 1 for me 2 for gifts loaded the Rabbit showed up with start but no place to register now what do I do? feeling pretty duhhhhhh right now any help appreciated.


    • Hey Kymm,

      The registration page should have came up when you first plugged in the Rabbit TVs. If it didn’t, try going to their website and registering there, then you should be able to login with that information.

      If for some reason that doesn’t work, I’d just give them a call and explain the problem.

      Good luck with everything!

  5. Can you simply plug the Rabbit into the usb port on a tv

  6. Thank you very much for the review. Every question I had was answered

  7. Can it be used on an I Pad?

  8. Can the Rabbit be made to work with a Raspberry Pi and Linux?

  9. can i get tbn and son life

  10. does the rabbit work in overseas? i travel a lot and this would be nise if it did

    • can rabbit tv work oversee?

      • Hey, Varnie. That’s a great question. You can use the Rabbit TV overseas. You just need to set up a VPN. Check out the instructions here.

  11. Will I be able to watch ppv fights?

  12. Does Rabbit TV give the user anything they can’t get by using a search engine with their computer?

    Are other subscription fees required to actually see contents.

    How much of the content is in english language? –whether or not it requires other fees and other accounts.

    Will using Rabbit TV end up with installing a bunch of invasive software that ends up slowing down everything else?

  13. I have a question, I have satellite internet that I can only use so many gbs a month. Will using the rabbit will it use all of my data streaming the shows?


    • Hey, JS. Sorry you had a bad experience with the Rabbit. You should contact the manufacturer about this.

    • The same thing happened to me.

  15. i cant find any info about what SPEED internet is needed to use the rabbit. i have ATT and they offer three different SPEEDS of internet service. i use the most economical…therefore the slowest…service they offer. i seem to be able to watch YOUTUBE videos and movies without problems…but have found nobody that can tell me if rabbit requires any certain minimum internet speed. would like to try the product…but not if it means ponying up another $30 or $40 a month to get ATT’s higher/highest speed internet service. if anyone has the answer…email me at centsiblesystems(at)att(dot)net. thanks!

    • As long as you can stream longer Youtube videos and entire movies online without too much buffering, I can’t imagine you would have any issues with the Rabbit TV. I would recommend checking into data limits from ATT (although, they are typically quite generous). Where I live, Comcast allows me to use up 70 – 80 GB of data before penalizing my signal.

  16. It doesn’t work on my laptop.
