Time to Invite Our PlayOn Users Into the PlayLater Beta

We recently announced the private beta for our new product, PlayLater, a DVR for online content, and let in 5,000 folks to kick the tires, and help us find the last of the bugs. Now it’s time to let our loyal PlayOn Premium users in to check it out, and start recording their favorite online videos.

As part of the beta, existing PlayOn users will receive a full one-month free trial. After the one-month free trial ends, PlayOn Premium users who were part of the Beta will get a special introductory rate for PlayLater of $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year.

We are excited to invite our current Premium customers to try PlayLater and we’ll continue to invite the rest of our PlayOn users throughout the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
