PlayLater is Out of Beta and Ready for the Masses

Two months and more than 10,000 testers later, PlayLater is ready. Today we are making PlayLater, the DVR for online video, available for everyone. Simply go to the PlayLater website and click on the link http://www.playlater.tv to start your free two week trial!

PlayLater lets you record videos from almost any website and watch them later, even if you’re offline. It’s perfect for catching up on your favorite TV shows, movies and streaming events when you’re travelling, commuting or camping.

We recently finished our closed beta program and had thousands of people test the service. There was a great response from our community of early adopters and we want to thank everyone who helped us “kick the tires” so to speak. PlayLater users had a ton of awesome feedback. One of the requests we heard most often was the ability to use PlayLater with our other streaming video service, PlayOn. Now, when you use both products together, you can easily record your content on your PC and take it with you on your tablet, phone or mobile device.

We love online video. Everyday, more and more people are cutting the cable as everyone’s favorite shows make it to the Internet - from live sports and special events to popular movies and TV shows. And now, with PlayLater, it’s easier than ever to enjoy online video -- you never have to worry about missing a show because its content window closed, or your airplane doesn’t have wifi. Just find your content, record, and PlayLater.

You can purchase PlayLater at www.playlater.tv for only $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year. You can also bundle both of our services in the PlayTogether package – that gives you both PlayLater and PlayOn for $7.99 per month or $69.99 per year.

So check out PlayLater. If you have more questions, check out our FAQ or feel free to drop us a note www.playlater.tv/support
