PrimeTime2Go: Mobile DVR for Moto

QuickPlay Media has released PrimeTime2Go, a subscription-based Android app that not only allows you to watch TV shows over wifi, but also to use the phone as a DVR. (Edit: To clarify, shows must be downloaded over wifi, but no connection is needed to watch them after they’re downloaded.) Oddly, the app is only available for Motorola’s Android phones: Droid, Cliq, Cliq XT and Backflip.

QuickPlay boasts a growing library of shows, including Lost, The Office, 30 Rock, and Mythbusters. Users can subscribe to favorite shows to have them automatically delivered to the phone “soon after the original air date” and can rewind, fast forward, and pause shows to take a call.

Motorola phone owners can download the app from the Market, and pay $9.99 per month for the service via PayPal. The service is U.S. only for now, but it “will be available on future devices and in other geographic locations at a later date.”
