PlayOn Support Comes to Android 2.2 Devices

MediaMall Technologies, Inc. announced earlier today that it now officially supports Android devices for their PlayOn service!  The free software is available to handsets and tablets running 2.2 and higher and allows for streaming of online video and media.  This means you get mobile access to awesome stuff like Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Video on Demand as well as content from TBS, CBS, PBS, CNN, Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, and Adult Swim.  The list is actually much longer, but you get the picture.

If you’re an existing PlayOn Premium customer, simply head to the Android Market to install the application.  For those who have yet to try out PlayOn, there is a 14 day trial of the service after which it only runs $39.99 a year.  After the first year is up, the cost drops to $19.99 annually.

Once downloaded from the Android Market, the PlayOn app initially pairs with the media server over local WiFi. After the first setup, you’ll be able to enjoy all the content from anywhere in the world, providing you get a 3G or WiFi signal.

    I have been using Playon’s Xbox integration for years, and absolutely love their programming. I have been waiting for this particular app release, and was unfortunately disappointed. I don’t find it very valuable with the lack of features. I am a DISH Network employee/consumer, and I have been streaming live TV, DVR recordings, and on demand content using their Remote Access app. I will definitely be staying with my DISH app.
