Full High Definition 1080p Recording with PlayOn Cloud

Record streaming shows and movies in 1080p

PlayOn Cloud now enables 1080p quality recordings. These recordings will make your PlayOn Cloud viewing experience crystal clear on 1080p/H.265-capable devices. Due to the significantly higher processing demands of a 1080p recording, they will require 3 credits per recording.

To enable 1080p recordings, visit Settings > Video Quality in your PlayOn Cloud app and select Full HD.
