Cheapest Streaming TV $2/Month: Rabbit Makes Cable TV Useless


It seems cable prices are getting more expensive and cable providers are offering more commercials and disruptive advertising than good on demand programming at a low price for consumers. All that is changing as people ditch cable for Internet. The barrier is finally broken. Price, innovation, emerging technology, demand and broad use of the web and devices has brought streaming, well... mainstream.

Puns aside, Google Chromecast and Roku sales during the holidays proved the technology and the market is a huge success and the timing couldn't be better. Apple TV has slowly introduced the world to streaming at home and on other devices. Western Digital and other storage and cloud companies also started experimenting with solutions. Satellite TV providers like Dish and DirecTV have introduced multi-device subscriptions. Camera and audio companies are getting in the streaming functionality mix as well, with live feeds introduced on a number of platforms including YouTube, LiveStream and some others. But does the as seen on TV promo for the Rabbit TV Plus actually substantiate its wild claims of a device for $10 and millions of free streams? That's even lower than the introductory $35 price tags of the Roku and Chromecast sticks. Let's take a look at the evidence first.

Watch this video by ReviewsbyRex on YouTube for an honest review of the rabbit streaming product. He loaded up into a Windows 7 machine. He inserted the USB stick into the computer and ran it like a typical program installation. The he briefly registered.

"Registration took about one or two minutes."

Tiles on the menu screens appear to be similar to other streaming services like Netflix and Crackle. Rabbit TV also offers several thousand radio stations. In this review video, the user clicks on the TV show "Smash". It immediately begins playing a full 43-minute episode. The user made the stream play on full screen.

"So you can actually watch full episodes," he said. "That's cool."

ReviewsbyRex then took a look at some classic shows from the 70s. The Brady Bunch loaded right up on the laptop. The web UIs have funky skins, like the retro hippy era stripes on the Brady Bunch episode.

There seems to be some accountability too. For adult content, you must enter a birthday for R rated movies to ensure the viewer is old enough to be defiled by a film. He then played a full length movie for free. There is live television and sports on the Rabbit TV as well. ReviewsbyRex surfed over to a Red Bull sponsored snowboarding tournament being aired live on TV. You can select live channels from a tab at the top menu of the page as you can see in the video.

The technology works by monitoring more than 2 million links. Last year, they advertised a quarter million TV episodes, 100,000 free movies, 50,000 radio stations and "much more". Does it work with a smart TV? The Rabbit TV Plus company also advertises the service and product to be able to work on any device, with icons depicting a tablet, PC, phone and TV. This is shown in the following videos below.
