Have you been thinking about cutting the cord on TV? I’ve been using a program called Playon to get free TV throughout my house. If you’re looking into ways to cut your cable bill, you’re going to be interested in getting free TV with Playon.
Playon is a program created by MediaMall Technologies. I was an early adopter of Playon since about 2009. I’ve been using it ever since. It’s just an awesome piece of software that creates a media center on your PC that streams channels to all your different devices around the house.
It’s really quick and easy to download and install on your computer. (PC only unfortunately) Once you install it any compatible device on your wifi network will automatically detect it. This includes popular gaming machines like the xbox, playstation, and wii. I can also get it on my Roku as well as my iphone and ipad through their free app.
Playon comes with a huge list of default channels. Keep in mind that if you want to watch a subscription channel like netflix, you’ll still need to sign up for their service separately.
However, it’s not necessary to sign up for outside services to watch TV through Playon. Playon supports a large number of channels that you can get for free.
You can watch full episodes from comedy central, Hulu, News, youtube, Mtv, BET, Adult Swim, PBS, PBS Kids etc… You’ll get access to thousands of shows. Also, if you have your own media on your computer, you can stream your own media as well.
They have an awesome selection. They have so many built in channels that you can get pretty much all your TV needs with the default settings. But if that’s not enough, they’ve also opened up their API for user developed channels as well.
It’s really easy to find free user created scripts and install them on playon. You can find tons of free channels (scripts) through user created sites like playonscripts.com and add to your channel selection. It’s really awesome!
Frankly, some of my favorite channels are user created scripts. You can find virtually any kind of channel created by users. I highly recommend checking out some user created channels if you use Playon. It really pushes the service to a whole new level. You’ll find that you can stream virtually anything you want.
Playon Subscription Model
Just so that you are aware, Playon does have two teirs of service. They have a lite version, which is completely free. The lite version allows you to stream your own media, pandora radio, and youtube. You can also stream certain user created scripts.
With the right user created scripts installed, you may be able to meet all your needs with the lite version of playon.
However, Playon does also have a premium version that gives you several subscription options. When you first sign up for playon, you will automatically get a free trial of the premium service. Don’t worry, you don’t need to give any credit card information or any payment details. The free trial will automatically revert to the free service at the end of the trial period. So it’s completely free to try out. I definitely recommend signing up for the free trial.
Now, I’m also of the mind that if a company is providing a really good service, I want to support them as well. And I don’t mind paying a reasonable price for a good service.
Frankly, I want Playon to be successful, so that I can continue getting my free streaming TV on all my devices. If you really like their service, here’s a look at their subscription options:
Keep in mind, you never need to pay a cent to continue using their free service. However, if you enjoy their premium services, then I think their prices are very reasonable.
I would actually recommend their current special offer for their lifetime license. (I actually paid for a lifetime license without any special offers, so no free roku for me) The roku that they are giving away free retails for $59.99. That’s a pretty awesome deal for a lifetime license in my opinion.
Anyway, Like I said earlier, you don’t need to spend any money for the program. You really can meet virtually all your TV needs using free user created scripts. So, if you don’t want to pay for a subscription, there’s no need.
This is simply an awesome free program that will help you cut the cord on TV. If you are looking for ways to save money on your household expenses, cutting the cord on TV is a great way to save money. I definitely recommend getting Playon.
