Rabbit TV

I usually mute/ignore TV ads but this rather "too good be true" Veg-O-Matic styled one caught me pre-mute on a slow draw

I ran it past Google out of curiosity & found next to no real reviews. I would think someone would have flipped a fin & shared the experience, how about here?

No first hand knowledge of the rabbit product here...

Though the concept has been around for some time:

and one of several variations on the idea:

I own and operate several HDHR units... Quite happy with them, http://forum.tvfool.com/showthread.php?t=820

Yes, but essentially these are PC TV tuner cards that interface your OTA signal with your PC, at least this is what I assume as I have next to no knowledge of TV tuner cards, whereas Rabbit seems to be the opposite, getting signal from the web (?) that that could be streamed to a HDTV.
It's questionable how well it might perform & since my cable internet connection is now caped, how much of my monthly quota it might eat up.

My OOOOOPS, you're right,

I'm still trying to remember some other recent online service... That simply tries to charge for what you can find with any search engine using "Free TV", "Streaming TV" or similar search arguments.
