PlayOn Takes Redbox to Roku, PlayStation 3, Wii and More
Apr 01, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- PlayOn, a media server software from MediaMall Technologies that streams online videos to TV and mobile devices, announced the launch of its Redbox Instant Channel.
According to a release, PlayOn now provides the only solution for accessing Redbox Instant by Verizon on gaming consoles and streaming devices other than the Xbox 360, such as Roku, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, Google TV, Apple TV via AirPlay and all other DLNA-compliant devices.
Users must subscribe to Redbox Instant to access the content via PlayOn's Redbox Instant Channel. The $8-a-month service provides subscribers with unlimited instant streaming movie access and four DVDs per month from traditional Redbox kiosks.
"PlayOn aims to provide users with as much accessibility to streamed media as possible," said Jeff Lawrence, CEO of MediaMall Technologies. "With PlayOn's Redbox Instant Channel, streaming media freedom is placed in the hands of the user. People will no longer be restricted to the type of device they use to access Redbox Instant."
