Perfect for long flights, on the bus or train, overseas, or anywhere you want to watch your favorite streaming movie or show and there is no WiFi. No more missing shows because they’ve been taken offline; no more frustrations with slow or no internet while traveling. Just find the streaming video you want to watch later, hit the record button, then download your completed recordings.
Sound easy? That’s because it is.

All You Need is Your Phone.

Easily browse and find shows and movies from your favorite streaming sites. The PlayOn Cloud mobile app will record your selections via the cloud. It's easy to sync your recordings across iOS or Android devices or download recordings to another device. Automatically skip all of the commercials when you watch recordings of network TV shows on your phone. You can also download recordings to your PC to watch on your TV via a streaming device. Unlike the PlayOn Desktop SVR, no PC is required — just install the app on your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet to get started.

How It Works

PlayOn Cloud is a streaming video recorder (SVR) located in the cloud. When you select a video in the PlayOn Cloud app, we start a stream on a virtual PC in the cloud and record that stream like a DVR records cable TV. Once that recording is complete, an .mp4 file will be ready for you to enjoy. You can download the recorded.mp4 video file from the PlayOn Cloud app onto your mobile device. We also email you a download link to the video so you can download it from anywhere onto any device or computer.

When you watch your downloaded video through the PlayOn Cloud mobile app, it will ask you if you want to skip the commercials – hit yes and voilà. It's technology for the new way we watch TV.

All recordings will be stored in the cloud for a complimentary 7-day period. Or, you can store in the cloud for longer with a PlayOn Cloud Recording and Storage plan.
