Overheard on Facebook:
PlayOn on my Wii=good, Roku=better, iphone=versatile but on my Amazon Kindle Fire=AWSOME!
- Gary A.
PlayOn + Kindle Fire is like Hot Fudge on a sundae!
- Gary A.
And, what is a sundae without hot fudge anyway? Either way, it's true -- you can now watch Hulu for free (no HuluPlus subscription required) on the Kindle Fire – it’s easy with PlayOn. It’s also easy to watch Netflix, Amazon Prime VOD, HuluPlus, CBS, ComedyCentral, NHL, NFL, MLB.tv, ESPN, SyFy and all 30 other PlayOn channels on your Kindle Fire.
Detailed instructions are here: http://www.playon.tv/supported-devices. Just go to m.playon.tv in your Silk browser while you're on the same network as your PlayOn PC. You'll see the PlayOn menus on your Fire. Once you watch a video on your home Wi-Fi, if you have Mobile Access enabled in PlayOn Settings, you should be able to play videos from your PlayOn install even when your Fire’s on a remote Wi-Fi network.
If it doesn’t work right away, you may have your “Accelerated Browsing” turned on. This has to be off since it caches stuff which means you won’t be able to pull up the video you want (and I have found Accelerated Browsing is slower than the non-accelerated anyway, though I am sure the Silk team at Amazon is working on that). To turn off Accelerated Browsing just :
• Tap the menu button within the Silk Browser.
• Tap Settings
• Toggle Accelerate Page Loading to off. You will need to scroll down a bit to find the option.

So [Kindle] Fire Up your PlayOn!
