"We're very excited to introduce our customers to the breadth of content available through PlayOn's innovative and affordable service," said Tenny Sin, Executive Vice President at Cirago. "What makes our system unique is that, unlike video game consoles and other media players, the CMC3000 multimedia center also allows users to store their entire personal multimedia collection on the built-in hard drive and access and stream both their own and PlayOn content through their TV."

In addition to the CiragoTV Platinum (CMC3000), the CMC1000 and CMC2000 multimedia players are also compatible with the PlayOn platform. Each enables consumers to stream a wide range of content—including high-definition movies and TV programs—from their PC to their TV over a wired or wireless connection.

The CiragoTV Platinum CMC3000 features 500GB or 1TB of built-in storage capacity, plus built-in network-attached storage capability and a built-in PC-less BitTorrent client that enables users to download peer-to-peer movie and music files directly onto the device quietly in the background, without having to leave the PC turned on. Equipped with full 1080p playback capabilities, the CMC3000 also features timeshift technology that allows viewers to pause, record and playback live TV and Internet content with an easy-to-use remote control.

"We're pleased to have Cirago's products join our growing list of compatible devices that make it easy and affordable for consumers to access the expansive selection of Internet video content PlayOn delivers," said Jeff Lawrence, CEO of MediaMall Technologies. "Cirago's devices leverage a high-performance chipset and offer true multi-media functionality that allows users to enjoy a more complete line of content options."

Setting up the system is easy: users first download the PlayOn software package to their PC, then connect the CiragoTV Platinum to their home network via wired or wireless connection and their TV. Users can access their Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon VOD accounts and more directly on their HD TVs through the remote control, instead of watching those movies and videos on their small computer screens. Additional PlayOn video content channels include Comedy Central, CBS, CNN, PBS, PBS Kids, MTV, VH1, TV.com, ESPN3, MLB, NHL, Spike and others.

For a limited time, customers who purchase the CiragoTV Platinum CMC3000 can purchase a 1 year subscription to PlayOn for only $19.99, 50% off the regular retail price of $39.99.
