Rabbit TV

by trinal / February 21, 2013 8:00 AM PST

Was wondering if anyone knows anything about Rabbit TV? Is there anyone who has bought? I have been considering trying it out. I'm not sure if this is the forum I should be using to find out about this.

Scams abound, eh?

What on earth could you possibly want more for $10 a YEAR? Let's get real, here. WAY cheaper than netflix or hulu, and the time it would take you to locate even half what they have makes it worth it. Sheesh.

upon which someone has compiled a list of links to video programming so there is hardware involved. Finding out more is just a google away so most of these random posts from 1 use "members" are just spam, shills or people with too much idle time to burn. Happy

I have seen so many commercials on TV for these things and I wonder how stupid anyone could be to pay for something you can do free!

since digital conversion, and the resulting shorter range

there are people finding they don't get the over the air stations they did before, at least a substantial portion of the time, with the same antenna they used before.

Digital may be a better picture, but a weaker signal doesn't mean fuzzy or some "snow" it means freezing, skipping, or nothing.

Even though I'm on cable currently, I've been interested in what different results people get with different model antennas.

I've a rabbit ears and an old attic antenna

of the directional type. It had a rotator but the switch box gave out so further adjustments would need to be manual. These used 300 ohm parallel type wiring back then but mine adapts from 300 to 72-75 for the cable connectors. I live in a large enough city that I can get about 10 or so channels but only 6 or 6 have anything I care to watch. Some channels seem to have side channels as well such as channel 6 has a 6.1 which is just weather. I need to use the rabbit ears occasionally for fine tuning as I'm sure I have signal loss from the attic wiring length. Mine suits me fine as I'm not a TV buff and don't need premium services. Bad weather...especially windy...does seem to affect my reception and I do get jerky images when this happens. I live with it. I think the average cable bill these days is said to top 100 bucks. I'd rather keep my money.

Mine is about half again that, but that is tv and internet

Last antenna I had had the adapter mounted right on the antenna that hooked 300 ohm twin to the antenna and the other end was for a 75 ohm cable down to the tv.

What you get...

When looked at as a simple attachment it maybe worth the money. Now, that these are sold at Target and typical store fronts, the cost is the same, minus the S/H part. While, I agree its a pre-loaded list or guide to access what is already present on the WWW, it's there in a "turnkey setup" w/o that much user install involvement once done. What now seems to be the common complaint is that users expected much more or equivalent service as if it was cable or paid for services, its just not that way. it depends entirely what is known to be free or accessible as in, "allowed", so don't expect more than that. The drawback, is that a user has to have some hi-speed broadband available to make practical use of it, so if you don't have that, forget about it. Since, this is now been released over some time, "reviews" are more readily available, thus one should look these over and decide what best suits their needs. -----Willy Happy
