Still a Cord-Cutting Favorite
PlayOn Desktop is a PC app that turns your PC into a streaming video recorder and media server. Record, cast, and stream your favorite online shows and movies from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO and 100 other popular streaming sites. Watch anywhere, anytime, on any device, without the commercials, and even offline.
Why PlayOn? Why not just use Plex?
- Plex & PlayOn do overlap, but think of PlayOn as a channel browser while Plex is primary a media library.
- PlayOn is a one-stop-shop for the cord-cutter to record, cast, watch TV content.
- PlayOn has an easy to use interface.
- Ready to go with pre-installed channels.
- Recordings are in a universal .mp4 for playback on most devices.
- Overall, a good solution for the cord-cutter that just wants to replace replace TV content.
Which Roku channel to use? PlayCast is in the channelstore and PlayOn is private.
I tested both with PlayOn and see no difference. May be wrong. If so, let me know in chat above
