This new over-the-top product will allow consumers to easily watch
high-grade internet TV, check emails, make video calls, and operate
their home's security, all from the same location.

quad-core PC - what FreeCast calls 'The Smartest TV Ever'. The device

Rabbit TV Network, the world's largest Video-On-Demand (VOD) library in
the market today, along with Rabbit TV's pay-per-view offering, which
provides users universal access to new release movie rentals, premium TV
series and live 24/7 sports channels. The device also functions as a
complete gaming system with thousands of online games (3D&HD).
"Rabbit TV Select is so much more than the traditional 'app media
manager' you get with products like Roku or Apple TV. This standalone
device performs all the jobs of a PC, music player, cable box, phone,
home security system, game console and more from one central location.
It's simply in a class of its own," says FreeCast CEO William Mobley.
FreeCast revealed the device specifications to be as follows:
"With hundreds of millions of flat-panel TVs in the market, most of
which are only 2-3 years old with a 7-10 year life cycle, this device is
poised to give owners a $100 alternative to spending $2k+ for a smart
TV, most of which are no more than a simple app manager," argues Mobley.
The company has confirmed a $99 base price for Rabbit TV Select, which
will include the device remote a one-year subscription to Rabbit TV
Plus. Additional upgrades and options to be available by mid-2014.
FreeCast will be exhibiting at CES 2014 in LVH Hospitality Suite 371.
