Redbox Instant on PlayOn and PlayLater

We did it again! Bringing channels to your Roku, PS3, Wii, etc. before they are natively available - that's PlayOn. This time it's Redbox Instant - Redbox's new streaming service similar to Netflix. While Xbox Live Gold subscribers get it natively, if you don't want to fork out the $ for a Gold account - no worries - you can get Redbox on your Xbox 360 with PlayOn!
 
Yup - Redbox on Roku through PlayOn.
 
Redbox on PS3 and Redbox on Wii or WiiU through PlayOn.
 
And - you can record Redbox Instant movies with PlayLater and then watch them on your iPad or iPhone or tablet or PC when you fly off to Spring Break. We're headed up north to British Columbia to hit the slopes for some spring skiing, and thank goodness for PlayLater - since we can't get Hulu, Redbox or Netflix in Canada with our US accounts. Got the recording queue filled up and cranking away so we can watch Redbox movies every night!
 
So - whether you're headed to the beach or the slopes, whether you're flying or driving - with Redbox Instant, PlayOn and PlayLater - we've got you covered - rain or shine!
 
We hope for shine!

Top FAQs

What is PlayOn?
PlayOn is software that you install on your Windows PC. It allows you to use your Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Roku, iPhone, Android phone or another supported device to access movies and shows from content providers like Hulu, Netflix, Comedy Central, CBS, YouTube, MLB.tv, your personal media, and many more. 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.
