Not so long ago, PlayOn launched the web app version of their popular streaming media service. Among other features, PlayOn allows you to stream content from your computer (with an installable server application) straight to your iDevice without needing any sort of plug in box or fancy connection. This meant that from your iOS Safari browser you could watch anything that was being pumped through your PC.
Now the service is a bit sweeter as Apple has approved the native PlayOn app. PlayOn Platinum subscribers (free for 14 days, after which a subscription will be required for only $39.99 for the first year and $19.99 for each year thereafter) can now download the app and cleanly stream whatever they want to their iDevices, including including “Hulu, Netflix, Amazon VOD, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, TV.com, PBS, CNN, SpikeTV, and The Ultimate Fighter.”
“We’re very pleased to receive approval on the native app, which will make PlayOn even more accessible to iPhone users,” states Jeff Lawrence, CEO of MediaMall Technologies. “Although the HTML5 development surpassed our expectations about what a web app can do, we’re happy to be a part of Apple’s official app ecosystem and provide consumers with another way to easily find and access the video content that they love. We look forward to continuing the expansion of our library with additional content providers, so stay tuned!”
PlayOn Mobile is available for free in the App Store, and can be downloaded as soon as now!
