PlayOn Cloud

Seems like the people at PlayOn have been busy.  Just noticed over the weekend that there is a PlayOn Cloud channel available in the Roku channel store. It's a companion to the PlayOn Cloud app on iOS/Android. I haven't had a chance to use it a ton yet, but so far, I'm digging it. Was able to watch ...

Re: PlayOn is available in the official channel store

I don't recall PlayOn ever saying they were partners with Roku.  I checked with PlayOn Support and Roku and, while neither would go into detail, both indicated PlayOn had never previously been submitted as a public channel in the past.  PlayOn also made it clear that they never supported piracy and ...

Re: PlayOn Recording

@ Elijah_Baley - you mentioned that PlayOn's ad skipping feature works well, but that you primarily use Plex for streaming your PlayOn recordings. Don't you lose the ability to skip ads that way?

Re: PlayOn Recording

PlayOn's a private channel and all private channels to my understanding are officially unsupported. I did see other references to PlayOn in other threads that weren't locked down.

Anyone have any feedback regarding recording, AdSkip and CBS?

PlayOn Recording

Does anyone have any experience using PlayOn to record videos to watch on Roku?

I read about the AdSkip feature. How does that work?

Can you record from CBS without a CBS All Access subscription?
