It also allows users to organise local content in the app as well as stream it to a TV, enabling the DVR features of recording streaming videos, automatic recording of new shows upon release (subscriptions), and the ability to record all of the shows in a given series. It can also stream or cast to Roku, Chromecast, Xbox, PlayStation, and 20 other online video set-top devices and connected TVs. There is a commensurate ad-skipping feature.

"The new PlayOn brings a holistic streaming solution to the American consumer," said Jeff Lawrence, CEO of MediaMall Technologies, creators of PlayOn. "We encourage all consumers to give it a try for free."
