ATLANTA -- Watching television on a computer is becoming more common. For some, it's also more convenient.

Rabbit TV claims to give computer users access to more than 2,000 Internet TV stations.

It looks like a simple USB drive. Will Gara, who has appeared on hit TV show "The Walking Dead," is a bit skeptical.

"I don't know how this little thing would change my television viewing," he says.

However, he's willing to try it. He inserts the Rabbit TV into the USB port, installs it, opens the program and logs in.

"And it didn't ask me for a credit card, which I like," Gara says.

A show listing that looks very similar to Netflix pops up. The first show Gara decides to look at is "Dynasty."

After clicking on "watch now," he is redirected to something that looks like a mix of Rabbit TV and a television station website.

Gara then looks for "The Walking Dead," which he discovers is not available for free. Rabbit TV redirects him to Amazon so he can buy the newest episodes.

After investigating the website more, Gara discovers he can also listen to radio stations and see live streams.

Although Rabbit TV is interesting, it is also possible to find the same shows elsewhere.

"If I'm not a fan of classic TV, I would wonder what I'm doing with this," Gara says.

He isn't quite convinced the product is worthwhile and gives Rabbit TV a mixed review.
