It has been a roller coaster of a ride, but you can now watch Hulu, Netflix and more with PlayOn on your iPhone. Back in June the PlayOn app was approved from Apple, then put into review once again by them in mid-July. We decided not to wait for the app store and instead built a HTML version. Essentially you navigate to your PlayOn installation through Safari on your iPhone. You can bookmark the page and put an icon on your desktop so it ends up working just like an app. <a href="http://www.playon.tv/download" target="_blank">Download the new version of PlayOn</a> and follow the instructions to get started.</p>

It&rsquo;s a testament to the power of HTML5 and the returning focus on iPhone web apps.&quot;<br />

&quot;Hulu is the main attraction here, especially if paying $20 or so per year sounds preferable to the $10 per month Hulu Plus plans to charge.&quot;</p>
