Introducing PlayOn’s Show Finder: Find Your Favorite TV Shows and Movies on PlayOn!

A couple weeks ago, we asked you to challenge us to find your favorite TV shows, movies and clips to watch via PlayOn. You rose to the challenge and we had hundreds of requests for shows ranging from classics (I Love Lucy) to current staples (Breaking Bad)! I enjoyed telling you all how to watch your favorite shows and movies on PlayOn. I enjoyed it so much we decided to put my knowledge of where to find shows into an awesome new feature on our website – The Show Finder. Show Finder gives YOU the ability to search for your favorite TV shows, movies and video clips to watch on PlayOn. It cuts out the middleman (me) and puts the power in your hands.

We’ve spent quite a bit of time compiling this database of TV shows, movies and clips and categorizing what PlayOn channels you can use to access them. If you come across a show that is not in the database, let us know and we’ll keep an eye out for it. We hope you find this new feature as helpful as we do! How to use our Show Finder:

  1. Go to http://www.playon.tv/showfinder.
  2. Type in the name of the TV, movie or video clip you are searching for.
  3. A list of PlayOn channels will appear where you can find that TV show/movie.
  4. If a show or movie is not available, please email us at showfinder@playon.tv and we will try to find it for you.

That’s it! Super easy to use and helpful beyond belief when you want to watch something specific on PlayOn. So what do you think? Will you use the PlayOn Show Finder? Let us know your thoughts, questions and comments on Facebook and Twitter, or by email.

PlayOn is both browser and media server software, built into one. It browses content from various online providers, and displays that content directly on your TV, iPhone or Android phone.
How does it work?
PlayOn runs in the background on your PC over your home network. It uses standards called UPnP and DLNA to communicate with networked gaming consoles,TVs, and mobile phones working both as an internet browser to access online media and as a UPnP media server to serve videos to UPnP compliant devices.
