    CES Report - Rabbit TV 2 Goes Deviceless and Everywhere in 2014 | Business Wire (click for full article)

    New media breakout kings of 2013 sold over 2M, now company plans to turn it up.

    January 6, 2014

    ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FreeCast, the content discovery and management engine behind the best-selling eMedia guide Rabbit TV, today announced the launch of "Rabbit TV Plus", the newest iteration of its popular consumer device.


    The company has announced a number of major system updates coming with the newly overhauled service, including the addition of mobile compatibility. With the service's redesigned interface incorporating 'responsive design' technology, Rabbit TV Plus subscribers can now access the massive entertainment library on all devices, including computers, tablets and mobile devices. This new feature is especially significant given the extremely limited selection of full-length movies, TV episodes and live events currently available on mobile, most of which require different apps for each content provider. Rabbit TV Plus will eliminate these limitations by providing unrestricted access to all video content on the web regardless of what device is being used to view it.


    The new system will also include a vastly expanded eMedia guide, which the company claims to be the world's largest freely available content library on the market. This substantial offering will also be supplemented by a new Pay-Per-View section, which will provide subscribers universal access to new release movies rentals, premium TV series and live 24/7 sports channels.


    Unlike the original Rabbit TV service, Rabbit TV Plus will not require subscribers to use the token USB key device. Instead, users will be able to access the guide from any device using a web-based registration code. FreeCast explains that this change in delivery is meant to support today's high demand for second-screen viewing on tablets and smartphones, an industry that has seen explosive growth and evolution in the last year alone.

    Hmm the Rabbit TV is supposed to be coming out with a set-top box in February:

    Hulu & Netflix, Watch Out! RabbitTV Launches iOS and Android Apps at CES (click for full article)


    From the article:

    -- Meanwhile, RabbitTV has already released an app for Android, with an iOS app due out in about three weeks. "The iOS app is in review, and we're just fixing some minor things," he said.

    Also in February, Rabbit expects to launch a new $99 set top box, along with a premium service.

    The set top box will pull in content from RabbitTV and other "premium" providers, along with access to email, Skype video calling, cloud storage for videos and music, and operation of video home security monitoring systems, for example.

    The upcoming, hockey puck-sized Rabbit TV Select device will connect to flat panel TVs through HDMI. It will also communicate with tablets and smartphones.

    Pricing information isn't yet available for Rabbit's premium service, Shears told TabletPCReview.
