Great app This is a great app if you want to cut the cord, the only reason I didn't give it he stars is because it tends to buffer a lot when streaming, I have the max WiFi connection possible on both my PC and roku 2 device, the only thing higher I could do is hardwired. Other words its great
Video playback broken on newer Android versions This app used to play video on my phone, but after updating the OS past Android 4.1, videos no longer play. This app can still be convenient for finding content and sending it to my Roku, but it's useless for watching videos on the go. (I'm running TouchWiz Android 4.3 on a Galaxy Note 2)
Thanks PlayOn team People just don't give it the chance it deserves. Their loss! Love having so much content for free. Free TV and people complain about keeping a server open to use the app? Cry me a river and cut the cord already.
Doesn't work Not only the app but the software doesn't work i wish i neva spent my money on playon doesn't work on my smart tv xbox one or ps4 with a i5 processor and 8gbddr 3
Brilliant Concept Reduced to FRAUD BUYERS BEWARE: After installation & ACTIVATION, PlayOn automatically charges $4 MONTHLY to your account. YOU PAY $4 MONTHLY FOR A BRILLIANT CONCEPT THAT DOESN'T WORK CORRECTLY. *** ALSO! PLAYON TRICKS PEOPLE INTO PAYING $4 MONTHLY. You are NOT getting a FREE app here. You are only getting a FREE 30-day Trial that automatically changes to a $4 monthly charge, which is hard to kill & remove. IF PLAYON worked, $4 monthly might be OK, BUT THE APP AND ITS COMPANION PC SOFTWARE ARE BUGGY & UNSTABLE.
Works but needs an update Got a great deal through cnet cheapskates..$49.99 for Playon HD and Playlater HD lifetime. So I was super pleased about that. After about 5 minutes I got my first video from Hulu streaming perfectly to my chromecast and then of course to my HDTV. Setting that up was extremely easy. After using the app for a while I realize that it's really meant for casual use on your phone and not with the optimized for a tablet. It would be nice to have a way to save your favorite shows to your own playlist and it would be nice to stop casting in the middle of playing a video but you can't. So the service works but the app needs some work. It would be great if you could get to your media faster but it takes some digging through the menus.
