LAS VEGAS, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- from ShowStoppers @ NAB 2016 -- MediaMall Technologies Inc. announced PlayOn -- the first-ever Streaming Video Recorder or "SVR" as part of the ShowStoppers NAB press event last night at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. The event was the first public demo of PlayOn's innovative SVR service, a first-of-its-kind application allowing users to record streaming TV shows and movies and play them back on a multitude of devices without advertising, thanks to PlayOn's AdSkip technology.
"Streamers simply don't have the flexibility and freedom that DVRs offer to broadcast TV consumers," said Jeff Lawrence, President and CEO, PlayOn. "With PlayOn's SVR, we're giving those liberties to streamers by allowing them to record their favorite streaming TV shows and movies to watch whenever and wherever they want. Users can 'set it and forget it' by scheduling PlayOn to automatically record new episodes of their favorite shows as they become available. This enables them to never miss another episode or movie when they are taken offline."
PlayOn's SVR allows PC users to leverage existing streaming services to record, cast, or stream from more than 100 sites, including Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, Comedy Central, and all the major networks. Users can easily record movies or TV shows, or even an entire series, all with the click of a button. Video recordings are saved to a user's computer so they can be enjoyed ad-free on a TV from the comfort of their couch or on-the-go saved to a tablet or mobile device – no Internet required.
PlayOn is available as a free download and allows users to stream shows or movies to their PC and cast their local media from a PC to a TV or mobile device. To record and play back media ad-free and to cast streaming media to a TV or device, PlayOn Plus is available for $4.99 monthly, $29.99 yearly or $49.99 for a lifetime subscription.
