How It Works
PlayOn Cloud is a streaming video recorder (SVR) located in the cloud. When you select a video in the PlayOn Cloud app, we start a stream on a virtual PC in the cloud and record that stream like a DVR records cable TV. Once that recording is complete, an .mp4 file will be ready for you to enjoy. You can download the recorded.mp4 video file from the PlayOn Cloud app onto your mobile device. We also email you a download link to the video so you can download it from anywhere onto any device or computer.
When you watch your downloaded video through the PlayOn Cloud mobile app, it will ask you if you want to skip the commercials – hit yes and voilà. It's technology for the new way we watch TV.
All recordings will be stored in the cloud for a complimentary 7-day period.
