PlayOn to Support Hulu and Netflix Via H L5

Posted by at 3:05 pm on August 2, 2010

Tomorrow,  PlayOn is launching a dedicated iPhone web app using HTML5,   since the firm hasn’t received approval for a native app from Apple yet.  The iPad is not yet supported.

The  web app lets you stream content from Hulu, Netflix, Comedy Central and other services.  Some restrictions exist; the PlayOn streaming client works only on Windows, for example, and can only broadcast over a local network.

Subscribing to PlayOn typically costs $40 for the first year and $20 every year afterward.  Alternately, people can pay a one-time fee of $80.  Either option also lets people stream to the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, along with computers and DLNA compatible devices.

The company notes that while a native iPhone app was originally scheduled to launch on July 15th, Apple suddenly put it back into review. “Other similar iPhone apps have been approved for the marketplace and can currently be downloaded, including SlingPlayer Mobile and iDisplay, so we’re confident that we can work through this issue with Apple and hope to be able to launch the application on the App Store soon,” per an official statement.
