Just yesterday Plex announced their Android app to world and today, PlayOn has announced their Android app is no longer in beta and can now be downloaded from the Android Market for use with your already existing PlayOn account. For those of you not familiar with PlayOn, the service allows you to connect to various media content sites such as Hulu, Netflix, CNN, Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Nickelodeon, ESPN3, NFL Rewind, MLB, MTV and more through your PC and have it all displayed on your TV. Now, they've added Android smartphones to the list of connectible devices.
PlayOn Premium customers with Android 2.2+ need just to download the PlayOn Mobile app from the Android Marketplace and initially pair the device over the local Wi-Fi network with the PlayOn media server. The device may then be used to stream online video and personal media content over 3G or Wi-Fi anywhere in the world where you can get a signal.
If you already have a PlayOn account then you can access the app and services for free. However, new customers will have to check out the 14-day trial period, use services during that time and then decide if they wish to keep it. If you do, PlayOn will then cost $39.99 for the first year and $19.99 for each year thereafter. [PlayOn via VerticalWire]
