    PlayOn App For Android Coming Very Soon

    For those of you unfamiliar with PlayonTv, it's basically software you install on your PC so you can access Netflix, Hulu and many other channels on your PS3 and other devices. Here is the link to their site explaining more:

    | PlayOn | Watch Hulu, CBS.com, MLB.tv, Netflix, and more on your TV with PlayOn!

    They just started mobile access support for the iphone and ipod touch. I emailed them today to find out about support for Android and here's the response I got:

    We will be adding support Android in the very near future. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for contacting PlayOn Support.

    This means we will soon be able to stream Netflix on our Droids probably before the Netflix app is released.

    Just wanted to give everyone a heads-up!

    This sounds cool. I can't wait for it. $39.99 seems a little steep though. It better be worth it. We'll have to wait and see.....

    I figured I'd drop them an e-mail too. I just got a response back (on a Saturday evening ). Here it is:

    Hi Scott,

    I own an Android device and we are working on a solution for Android. We just added the iPad, so next device is Android on the roadmap.

    Thanks for contacting PlayOn Support.

    Best,

    Greg

    I hope this happens soon! Of course, we had to take second fiddle to Apple again....

    Does this mean we will be able to Hulu it up on our Droid Xs? If so, huzzah! And much agreed to taking second string to Apple, but such is commerce life.

    maybe im not understand this, but why would you need this app?

    On XBOX, it already has Netflix on it. PS3 and XBOX 360 both hook up to your own personal media and allow you to play any home videos, movies, pictures, songs right off your PC to the console without this software?

    So basically the only thing your buying is the ability to see YouTube and Hulu on your TV? Unless I'm missing something, it sounds pointless.

    It's to watch those on your phone...not on your TV

    With playon plugins installed, you can watch pretty much anything on the web, directly on your tv using realtime transcoding. For instance there's a plugin that allows you to watch live sporting events off of justin.tv. There are plugins that allow you to stream streamtorrent sopcast links etc. This is awesome for streaming live football to your tv. Also you can stream local files from your HD to your TV, regardless of codec. This will also make it possible to stream netflix, hulu and anything to your phone! You could set it up to with transdroid to download torrents to your home computer and stream them to your phone instantly...

    needless to say this **** is sweet. I can't wait to get it on my droid.
    ...you have an iWhat?
