Playon $20 til end of month

Playon us only $20 til end of month. 50% off. I guess I'll finally buy it. If you want the deal, you might need to get their newsletter. They say they're going to a subscription service $40 then 20/yr. Seems like they're pricing themselves out of the market.

For $20 it is worth it. Especially with the Sage Playon Plugin.

Concerning the potential higher fees in the future: hopefully they will still allow for some free content. It's been heavily debated, and no one will know for sure until it happens, but we hope that any increase in fees would result in an increase in TV listings. But I am certainly not going to pay $20/mo for the amount of stuff being offered today.

FYI - here is the official annoucement from Playon.

Quote:
PlayOn Premium is coming! We will release PlayOn Premium on July 15th, 2010. It will include: Comedy Central (including South Park), NHL, TV.com, MTV.com, VH1.com, and more. It will be sold as an annual subscription -- $39.99 for the first year and $19.99/year thereafter. Your subscription will entitle you to all new content services over the course of the year (and we plan to release a lot), as well as functionality improvements (including a greatly enhanced and integrated Plugin experience, Gold version of the Wii, and much more). We will also be releasing iPhone support for PlayOn Premium which may carry a small additional fee.

Starting on May 20, 2010, we will no longer sell PlayOn as a lifetime license for a single fee. We will start selling PlayOn as a subscription ($39.99 for the first year and $19.99/year thereafter) on May 20, 2010. Customers who purchase PlayOn on or after May 20,2010 will automatically receive PlayOn Premium upon its launch on July 15th, 2010.

We will continue to honor the lifetime licenses for those that purchased PlayOn prior to May 20, 2010 (which we are now calling PlayOn Basic). Your PlayOn Basic will continue to work with the existing non-beta content (Hulu, Netflix, CBS.com, ESPN.com, CNN.com, YouTube, MyMedia and Plugins) as well as Amazon VOD, MLB.tv, and Pandora. After July 15th, 2010, The Daily Show and the Colbert Report will no longer be supported in PlayOn Basic as these are being launched out of beta as part of the full Comedy Central integration in PlayOn Premium. PlayOn Base will continue to receive new features and development support, but no new content will be added into the core (though you can always add more plugins).

To thank our loyal customers, if you purchased PlayOn prior to May 20, 2010, we will be offering a founding member discount for PlayOn Premium. You may upgrade to PlayOn Premium for only $4.99 for the first year ($19.99/year thereafter). Once you purchase the upgrade, you will receive a new license key which will unlock the new PlayOn Premium content. You may also cancel your subscription at any time, and go back to PlayOn Basic (be sure to save your original license key). We are sure you will enjoy the new content and features so much, you will never want to go back.

Between now and July 15th, 2010, you will see a number of content services in PlayOn listed as “Premium Preview” – this is to give you a sneak preview of some of the content that you will have access to as a Premium subscriber. Please note that this content will no longer be accessible after July 15th 2010. We hope you enjoy these previews and encourage you to upgrade on July 15th.

Why are we doing this? The annual subscription fee will fund continued development and support. We want to ensure that we can always give the latest and greatest content and service to our entire user base. The on-going subscription fee will allow that. Give it a shot – we think you’ll like what you see.

If you have any additional questions, please contact us at support@playon.tv

Those quotes are actually from the Playon web site. I did not get an email either yet. But I am sure they will be sending something out as they get closer to the cut off date.

Not to worry. I'm sure you are find and don't need to purchase another license. If you have a question, just send playon support an email. I've found their support to be quick and excellent quality.

Thumbs down

$20 price only good if you use trialpay, which wants $8.95 plus $15.95/month for some game netflix like outfit. So, if it's too good to be true, it probably is.

Search for a coupon code. I was able to find one a couple of days ago that worked to get a lower price. Sorry, I don't know what it was and it does not show up on my invoice.

I believe the coupon code is "Lifetime" in honor of the fact it is one of the last changes to get the "Lifetime license" for one flat fee.

Thanks for the code, I'll try it tonight. For 20$ it seems worth it.

I'm not currently using Sage, and realistically won't be switching from WMC to it for another two months or so. When I do I plan to to have a media server, with at least one HD200 and some clients.

If I want to be able to watch Hulu, etc, on the HD200 ... I'm thinking I should buy the PlayOn for $20 now, while I can, even if I don't start using it for two months. Does that make sense?

mmanville - I think it is worth the $20 gamble to ensure you get the lifetime license by buying Playon now.

Thanks for the reply sic0048, and also providing the coupon code - I went ahead and bought the license for $20 on Friday.

Thanks!
