Join me in welcoming Fire TV to the PlayOn family of supported devices.


The PlayOn Fire TV App is now available in the Amazon App Store. This means that you can watch virtually any web video on your Fire TV. Cast from your phone, tablet or PC or use the Fire TV remote control. And - with PlayOn Plus, you can record your favorites from any channel and skip the ads automatically! No need to pay for Hulu or CBS's ad-skipping tier with PlayOn. And get tons of free content with the Yahoo View channel which now hosts most of the old Hulu free content!

Record Mozart in the Jungle - You won't regret it!

June 8, 2016 | Tracy's Blog

Kudos to Amazon for their original series. I love seeing more producers and channels for TV shows that are brushed aside by the big networks. I just finished the 2nd season of Mozart in the Jungle – an Amazon original series. Delightful. I loved it. It accompanied me from Virginia to Seattle without a moment of boredom…thanks to PlayOn’s recording feature. Next up is Catastrophe or Orphan Black. I’m doing a bake off with the pilots…would love to know what others think about either!
