User reviews of PlayOn
I watch almost everything with PlayON. Not only a great mobile app but works on PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Getting rid of cable soon. Works very well on my EVO 4G. You have to pay a subscription fee for the whole service but it saves you money in the long run. Great support and trouble ticket system.

This is a great app. I had purchased Plex, which I now regret, before discovering PlayOn. Their tech support, which I only needed once, responded quickly on a SUNDAY! Something I learned that may help others: even if you don't use IE, upadate to IE8 and keep it updated because it runs in the background with PlayOn. This app is worth the price. It is also a great media server that I use to stream content to my tv through my PS3. One more thing: get user created scripts and plugins for tons of content by going to playonscripts.com and playonplugins.com

Thanks to Thunder7, I finally got this working on my DX. I wish tech support had made that suggestion earlier on, but at least it was an easy fix. Works great now.

The best app, one of my top favorites now. It works flawless on 3g or wifi. Plays blu rays and tv shows with lttle or no buffering

Make sure you are running PlayOn v3.2.x or later on the PC/server side, and you have your browser setting to enable plug-ins to ALWAYS ON. Then, just connect via WiFi at least once for the app to get the correct IP info, and you'll be set for WiFi or 3G. Great fun app to watch your stuff!

Needs work. This app really needs a stop button. Only having a play and pause button doesn't cut it when streaming to Chromecast... Also, it would be nice if pressing the Android back button would go back to the previous page instead of exiting out of the app.

Years later the UI is still horrible PLEASE follow the Android design guidelines. Learn how to use the back button, learn how to build good UX/UI. This app is so painful to use.
