PlayOn Launches Official Support for Canadian Consumers
Media Mall Technologies, Inc. today announced the official launch of PlayOn support for content available in Canadian markets. PlayOn is a software solution that enables streaming of online video content to TV’s and iOS mobile devices. As usual we Canadians initially got the shaft but residents of the Great White North can now use the service to access shows from a number of providers, including Netflix, YouTube, ESPN, NHL, CNN, PBS, MTV.ca and Revision 3.
The process is easy and requires only that you download PlayOn to your home PC and begin streaming through a networked Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, or any number of DLNA-compliant devices (Digital Living Network Alliance). Users who want to take advantage of this service while on the go can download the PlayOn app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and stream all available shows over 3G or Wi-Fi.
As an incentive to bring in new users, PlayOn is offering consumers a free 14-day trial of the service, after which a subscription to PlayOn Premium will be required at the cost of $39.99 for the first year and $19.99 for each following year, covering all future software/content updates and support.
Simply download PlayOn to your home PC and begin streaming through a networked Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3 or Microsoft Xbox 360 game console, or any number of available DLNA-compliant devices. Users wishing to access their favorite shows on the go may download the PlayOn app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, and stream all available shows over 3G or Wi-Fi, on and off the home network.
Consumers may sign up for a free 14-day trial of the service, after which a subscription to PlayOn Premium will be required at a cost of $39.99 for the first year and $19.99 for each year thereafter, covering all future software/content updates and support. It may seem a little steep at first sight but it breaks down to a little over $3.25 a month for the first year.
