Simply: Rabbit TV is Convenience
At $24 a year this is streaming service that needs to be taken seriously
Rabbit TV makes it easier to find the shows and movies you want to watch online. Rabbit TV organizes video content from around the web, into a one-stop-shop, easy to use interface.
Lets cut to the chase: Rabbit TV offers show that are readily available for free online. The difference is that all those shows and websites take time to navigate. What Rabbit TV Plus offers is a single platform that brings all that content under one roof. And it is for this reason that I say “Rabbit TV Plus is Convenience”.
Time is money right? If you think about how much time it takes to navigate the web, and bookmark all the free streaming sites out there, you can see how $24 a year is well worth the money. You have a job and a life that leaves little time to fiddle around on the computer all day looking for something to watch.

How Much Does Rabbit TV Cost?
Regardless if you subscribe to streaming services like Netflix or Hulu, you still may like the service Rabbit TV Plus. It is an online service where, for $24 a year, you can stream hundreds live television networks and access thousands of on-demand shows and movies.
Most recently it was announced that they would soon be included on streaming devices; which is a great change of pace for the service. Originally, Rabbit TV Plus existed as a device similar to Roku; but now the service has gone 100 percent digital, in a manner similar to Netflix.

Types of Content
Unlike Netflix, however, they do not have exclusive content or deals with television networks. Instead, they aggregates content that can already be found online for free. That means you will get a lot of over-the-air content from networks like ABC or NBC, as well as older premium content looking for a new lease on life.
In addition to live and on-demand television, Rabbit TV Plus also allows you to watch thousands of movies online as well; although, like television, most of the films are older movies hoping to find a new audience. If you want newer content, you can rent new-release movies for $1.99.
Rabbit TV Plus also offers thousands of internet radio stations like Pandora and AOL radio.
Is It Right For You?
For some cord cutters, this service may seem like a redundancy not worth spending time on; but that wouldn’t be a fair assessment. It isn’t designed for the tech junkie that torrents and streams without a second thought.
“Overall it is a tool that can add a great deal of content to any streamer or cord cutting household.” The Streaming Advisor
Rabbit TV Plus is for people that either don’t have the time or the knowledge to seek out this content online.
There are people out there that don’t care about the latest and greatest in entertainment. These people don’t care about The Walking Dead, they just want to see their favorite episode of Perry Mason for the 150th time; and sadly most services don’t take that into consideration. Instead, consumers are forced into cable contracts because they think they have no place to go.
That, in essence, is how the cable companies keep their iron-clad grip on the American public. By downplaying the alternatives, big cable has thus far been able to stem the growing tide of dissatisfaction over their services; however, with simple services like this, that may change.

Simple services that aggregate content is a good thing. That is what the internet is these days. We have too much content and not enough clarity. So there will always be a niche out there for those who consolidate content and provide easy access to the shows people love. Once this untapped market becomes more familiar with the technology, don’t be surprised if you even see Baby Boomers cutting the cord and ditching cable in droves.
