TargetTicket.com and PlayMark...an excellent combination!


October 2, 2013 | Skip's Blog

Has anyone checked out the new TargetTicket service?  It looks pretty cool so far.
 
I've been testing over the last couple of days and it turns out you can use PlayMark to watch videos from TargetTicket.com at your TV or mobile device...Or record those videos with PlayLater!
 
With a bit of patience, touch of magic...and some secret sauce - you can be watching or recording your favorite videos from TargetTicket.com in no time :)

Here goes:

  •    Stop the PlayOn server
  •    Hold SHIFT+ALT while starting the server again
  •    In the Internet Explorer window that opens, browse to TargetTicket.com
  •    Log in and play a video
  •    Close this IE window
  •    Now, launch IE (normally) and browse to TargetTicket.com
  •    Click on My Library
  •    Play a video. 
  •    Click on the PlayMark button

 
Now you'll see the PlayMark window open with a message indicating "analyzing" followed by a message indicating there were no videos detected.
 
 
DON'T PANIC! 
 
 
Click on next and you should now be able to select the video again in the PlayMark window.  This time the video should be detected and play in the PlayMark window.  Crop the video, click next and then choose to "save", "save & send to", or "save and record"...
 
That's all there is to it...As always, if you have any trouble just let us know.  We are happy to help...Providing solutions and spreading the media streaming love - that's what we're all about!

Season 4 of White Collar available to stream free!


September 21, 2013 | Skip's Blog

Many of you have asked about shows like White Collar from USA Network. Leading up to the premiere of a new season, USA generally makes the entire previous season available to stream free at Hulu...and White Collar is no exception.
 
For a limited time, season 4 is available to stream free in its entirety. And it's web only so it's not available using Hulu Plus - but you can watch on your TV or on your mobile device using PlayOn. Or use PlayLater to record the series before it expires. Happy streaming!

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


September 10, 2013 | Skip's Blog

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.

Babble Wants to Know: Are You Ready To Cut The Cord?


August 29, 2013 | Tracy's Blog

How much do you pay for cable on a monthly basis? According to our most recent customer survey, 87 percent of you said that you spent at least $50 per month on your cable bill before cutting the cord. For those of you who haven’t cut cable yet, what are you waiting for?

Inspired by that survey, we created an infographic that helps you decide if you’re ready to cut cable and what your best options are for setting up a cable-free home. Depending on your preferences (are you a PC user? Mac user? Can’t live without sports?), this infographic guides you step-by-step through the intricacies of getting rid of cable.

Popular parenting website Babble shared our graphic – try it out for yourself and find out if you’re ready to get rid of cable:

Are You Ready to Cut the Cord?

So, which one are you? Let us know if you’re stuck with cable, might be ready to cut or are definitely ready to get rid of cable on our Facebook and Twitter, or by email.
