That’s right – we’ve decided to make PlayOn COMPLETELY FREE on Google TV. Why? Well - Hulu and the Networks have been discriminating against Google TV owners by not creating apps that enable folks to watch their content on Google TV – so Roku has Hulu Plus, PS3 and Xbox 360 have Hulu Plus, but poor Google TV = no dice. That means you won’t be able to get content from CBS, ABC, Fox, and Comedy Central on your Google TV.
Don't take my word for it -- this has been going on for a couple of years:
“So the question still remains: why is Hulu Plus [STILL] not available on Google TV?”

So…..we at PlayOn thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if we enabled Google TV folks to have Hulu, ABC, CBS, Fox, Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, and 50+ more channels for FREE?” So, forget paying $7.99/month for Hulu Plus or $49.99 for a PlayOn license. Use PlayOn and get content on your Google TV – for FREE! Plus 60+ other network and premium channels – all for FREE. So tell your friends, shout it from the tree tops (ok – that’s a little overboard, it’s not likely a Google TV owner will hear you), but do spread the word. Just go to and you can download PlayOn to your PC from there. No need to buy a license key – the non-licensed software will just magically work on Google TVs. Then, from your Google TV, go into the Google Play Store and get the PlayOn app. That’s it! [Ok, there are more detailed instructions here ].

If you have any suggestions as to how we can spread the word – let us know at We want every Google TV owner to be able to watch their favorite TV shows for free!
