More Internet Video Channels on Game Consoles

Techstination feature for Thursday, May 27, 2010

More Internet videos on your game console and iPhone. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. If you're a NetFlix subscriber and own an Xbox360, PS3 or Nintendo Wii, you have all you need to watch streaming movies on the family room TV where the game machine resides. But you can add more channels and capability by running a media server on a Windows PC from PlayOn.TV. Co-founder and CEO Jeff Lawrence...

"PlayOn also brings Hulu and, CNN, ESPN, Amazon Video on Demand, YouTube, PBS, Comedy Central, Major League Baseball, NHL."

PlayOn offers a free trial after which a subscription is required. The first year is 40 dollars... subsequent years 20. The company is adding an iPhone app for watching on mobile with a version for Android handsets due later in the year. You can find more info at PlayOn.TV. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
