Say you have a funny video of your cat that you want to share with everyone in the room. If you have a smart TV, it seems like it should be easy enough to play it from your phone on the TV, right? But if you’ve ever tried to do it, you may have experienced the frustration that comes with figuring out this process.
Thankfully, with the PlayOn Cloud app, you can share that hilarious cat video at once with everyone in the room in San Bernardino County, CA. Here’s how it works.
How PlayOn works
PlayOn is an app that works like a smart TV’s natural interface. Whether you have a smart TV or use an external device like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple TV or another type of interface, there are apps you can download like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and Disney+ to watch movies and TV shows.
Some devices do not support all these apps (which are sometimes called channels) that you might want to run. PlayOn essentially works like a web browser and allows you to view these channels regardless of their functionality with your device. With PlayOn, you can watch over 100 channels within the app even if they aren’t supported by your smart TV’s native interface.
Play your own files
In an attempt to watch videos from your computer or phone on the big screen in your home, you may have tried to hook it up using different cables, or even purchased an expensive device specifically to wirelessly connect the computer to your TV. The PlayOn desktop app eliminates that hassle and allows you to play your own files on your TV wirelessly.
Whether you have a desktop PC, a laptop, Apple phone or Android phone, PlayOn allows you to play videos and view photos from your device on the big screen. All you need to do is download the app onto your computer as well as your smart TV or external device and go through the steps to initially connect your computer or mobile phone.
PlayOn Cloud app
The PlayOn Cloud app works similarly to the desktop app, but it is specifically made for iPhone and Android users. It allows you to organize shows from hundreds of channels and store them in the cloud to view at your leisure.
The app stores shows for seven days in the cloud, and you can download them to watch at any time offline on your device. This also allows you to skip ads on shows or movies you’ve recorded in the app. It can be a lifesaver to have shows downloaded and ready to watch offline, especially when you’re traveling or stuck in line for hours somewhere with limited internet access.
