Marketwatch: Rabbit TV Plus Live Local Channels – The $25 Cable Solution
FreeCast Shows How Ditching a Monthly $100+ Cable/Satellite Bill is Easier Than You Think
ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — For only $10 per year, FreeCast’s recently released Rabbit TV Plus is giving subscribers quick and easy online access to over 50 years of free on-demand TV shows and movies, live sports, news, events, web TV channels and thousands of other video options plus pay-per-view content on every device, including computers, tablets and smartphones.
Combined with a simple $15 HD antenna, which provides access to free live local channels including ABC, NBC, CBS, the CW, and Univision, the new eMedia guide service provides U.S. consumers with an extremely affordable alternative to increasingly expensive cable and satellite services, which cost the average subscriber upwards of $1000 per year (NPD Group, 2013). To add even more, both Rabbit TV Plus and a low-cost HD antenna can be purchased at local retail locations nationwide, including Walmart, Target, Sears, Bed Bath & Beyond, CVS, Walgreens and many more, putting consumers in a unique position to ditch their cable bills once and for all with no more than $25 and a short trip to their local department store.
With these substantial savings, content-hungry consumers can easily afford to supplement their entertainment experience with additional online video services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, which can also be accessed through the Rabbit TV eMedia guide, providing even more on-demand video options plus the ability to rent or purchase the top TV shows and the latest box-office hits on an a la carte basis, all for a fraction of the cost of traditional cable service.
Rabbit TV’s operating company FreeCast expects this combination to be an extremely popular choice for Americans looking to ‘cut the cord’, especially with cable subscriptions expected to rise to over $220 per month by the year 2020 (NPD, 2013). In an attempt to create a ‘complete entertainment ecosystem’ for its millions of subscribers, the company is even providing new users with a free HDMI cable, allowing them to view web-based entertainment content right on their HDTVs without the need to purchase expensive smart TVs or set-top boxes.
