Media: Netflix /Hulu / espn3 (thousands of others) on Ur PS3 –
First off I posted this over on PS3-Hacks a while back - thought I should share it here...
As well, I did a search of the forums looking for 'Playon' (none really came back) so just thought I should share with you all what its like...
What it is:
PlayOn is a program you install on your computer, it then takes the stream from your computer, converts it and sends it to your ps3 (or xbox or wii - or even now your phone)
What its like:
Simply put - I no longer have cable tv - I watch everything off of playon - its like a giant DVR except I don't have to record anything.
What you can watch:
Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, Amazon VOD, ESPN, ESPN3, CBS, WB, CW, Food Network, Discovery, Adult Swim, Comedy Centeral, Fox News ... (that is just a 'few') of what there is to offer
Note that there are also 'Plugins' (which is where my site comes into play) I run playonplugins.com, a forum that has over 84,000 members, where the members are encouraged to create scripts and plugins to share with the community. We do a bit more of the border line illegal stuff - mega video, ****, anything that is on the net really.
Why I'm sharing:
I love my ps3 - and I love playon
Playonplugins.com - Simply put over 500 different scripts / opml's / and plugins to add to playon. Adding more content to your ps3.
The catch: playon costs like 40$ (and yes even I paid up...) ... however there is a free 14 day trial - so give it a chance, no I'm not a bot either, this message is not spam. I don't get paid from them, I do however run a site dedicated to them. I think of it this way - I used to spend a lot for cable tv - now I've cut the cord and only have internet.
Offical site : Playon.tv
Third part sites
Playonplugins.com (plugins / scripts / opml)
Playonlabs.net (plugins) (one of my friends - who now works for playon - he origionally started out as a dev at playonplugins.com)
playonscripts.com (scripts) (another one of my friends - who again started at playonplugins.com )
Let me know what you all think - or even if this is appropiate to share with the psx-scene community.
(... really - im just mentioning this here because of someone asking how to get netflix with out having to connect to the psn - playon allows you to do that - given that you have a computer on the same network)
Playon: - Hulu / NETFLIX / ESPN / THOUSANDS MORE on your PS3
