PlayOn adds OTT to BlackBerry 10
July 17, 2013
For the first time, BlackBerry 10 customers in the US and Canada can watch content from Hulu, Netflix and HBO GO on their smartphone. By downloading the new PlayOn app to a BlackBerry Z10 or BlackBerry Q10 smartphone, and PlayOn software to a Windows PC, customers can stream online content from Netflix, Hulu (with no Hulu Plus subscription needed), HBO GO, CBS and 60 additional online channels to their smartphone.
PlayOn’s online software is installed on a Windows PC where it browses content from various online providers such as Netflix and Hulu and online channels including ABC, NBC, CBS and Comedy Central, and then displays that content directly on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone through the PlayOn app. BlackBerry 10 smartphone customers can browse and watch movies, TV shows and more on their phone at home or on the go over a Wi-Fi, 4G or 3G connection.
