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
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
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.
Playon works once you get it to work The first time I ran Playon on my PC, the server would not run. I could not send any of my videos to Chromecast. I had not understand the service very well so I was disappointed when I realized I could not play the videos on my PC and I needed to send them over the network to another device. I contacted Playon support team and I have to say I have never had a better experience with any other company. Maybe they will get worse in time :) But right now they respond very fast and they try to walk you through all possible solutions. I exchanged around 20 or more e-mails with them and I actually got bored of the attention :D. I realized there was something wrong with my Windows OS and it did not let the server run. So I kindly asked them to wait a few days to help me fix the problem. I told them I would try and reinstall my Windows 8.1 at the weekend. I did it and it actually worked. I am now able to send all "working" videos from my PC to my Chromecast (with the help of my Playon Android app) and PS3 (PS3 works a little faster). I forgot to tell them it worked and they wrote me back asking for the result. They do not forget :D I just wish Playon had as many working addons as KODI.
Poor execution and almost no content You can't watch anything on your phone directly as that requires Flash which has been removed from Android. The menus are nice but that's about it. There's almost no actual content that you get for purchasing PlayOn: its just a PC streamer they are charging you for. I can cast anything from my phone already and typically those native apps have a better experience.
