PlayOn has an innovative way of bringing content like Hulu, Netflix, HBO Go, and more to a platform. It uses your PC to stream the content which it then forwards on to your device. They have now launched a native BlackBerry 10 client and I am loving it. Best of all you do not need a Hulu Plus subscription because it is going through your PC. They also have support for CBS and 6 more online channels in the US and Canada.
I highly recommend checking out PlayOn in BlackBerry World if you enjoy streaming content. The price for PlayOn is a tad steep at $49.99 for life or $24.99 per year though they do have a 30 day trial.
Here is the announcement:
PlayOn Brings Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, 60+ Channels to BlackBerry 10 Platform
PlayOn app now available on BlackBerry World
Seattle, WA – July 16, 2013 – PlayOn, the award-winning media server software from MediaMall Technologies that streams online videos to TVs and mobile devices, today announced the launch of the PlayOn app for the BlackBerry® 10 platform.
For the first time, BlackBerry 10 customers in the US and Canada can watch content from Hulu, Netflix and HBO GO on their smartphone. By downloading the new PlayOn app to a BlackBerry® Z10 or BlackBerry® Q10 smartphone, and PlayOn software to a Windows PC, customers can stream online content from Netflix, Hulu (with no Hulu Plus subscription needed), HBO GO, CBS and 60 additional online channels to their smartphone.
PlayOn’s online software is installed on a Windows PC where it browses content from various online providers like Netflix and Hulu and online channels like ABC, NBC, CBS and Comedy Central, and then displays that content directly on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone through the PlayOn app. BlackBerry 10 smartphone customers can browse and watch movies, TV shows and more on their phone at home or on the go over a Wi-Fi®, 4G or 3G connection.
“With our new PlayOn app for BlackBerry, we are excited to extend PlayOn’s benefits to BlackBerry 10 smartphone customers, including first-time access to all the great content of Netflix, Hulu, CBS and HBO GO,” said Jeff Lawrence, CEO of MediaMall Technologies. “We are very pleased to be partnering with BlackBerry to launch this app. It is really going to change how BlackBerry 10 customers watch content on their smartphone.”
“We’re delighted that PlayOn is now available for BlackBerry 10 smartphone customers, giving them access to the fantastic streaming video content they can get today on their Windows PC,” said Martyn Mallick, VP of Global Alliances and Business Development at BlackBerry.
BlackBerry 10 smartphone customers can try PlayOn risk-free with the software’s 30-day money back guarantee through a Windows PC in the United States and Canada. A lifetime subscription to PlayOn is currently on sale for $49.99. Annual subscriptions are on sale for $24.99. The PlayOn app is a free download and is now available on the BlackBerry® World™ storefront.
