Works well
by Devicifer on 2020/10/07 22:23
I like having them do the recordings elsewhere instead of having my computer do it. That seems to work better.
I love this app!
by Flylulu on 2020/10/05 02:31
Add skipping is the best!
1080?
by MatthewsMom122412 on 2020/09/19 12:56
I love this app but will y’all ever move up to downloading movies in 1080? It would just look so much better on my tv.
Still Excellent After Many Years!
by AppFan3 on 2020/09/01 12:48
I’ve used the PlayOn cloud app for many years, and it has always been a great app. The ability to preserve movie and tv favorites is wonderful, and channels such as the new HBO and Peacock are added as they become available. I have had only two technical issues in my years using the app. Each time I emailed support and they were friendly, responsive and very helpful. I suspect that if anyone is not receiving a response, the email must not be reaching app support. I highly recommend this app and look forward to its continued development.
Worked prefect until I LOST 100 GB in recorded movies & 90 recording credits
by ANNOYED SUBCRIBER on 2020/08/19 19:46
I've been using this app for quite some time… Over a year. Suddenly, all my cloud recordings in my recording credits disappeared. I've tried to contact support three times with zero responses.
Love this APP!
by 505Cmg on 2020/08/05 00:32
Great APP - when are you getting peacock channel???? Hate commercials and cut the cord? This is for u! Very reasonably priced too! I wish recording did not take so long however based on price point - I’ll survive! Channel updates are needed too - so easy whether you download app on ROKU or cast to TV - so happy I found this gem
LOVE THIS!
by Wombat's Ma on 2020/08/02 05:53
I can save my very favorites forever with this app. Easy to use, record, download to my device and it’s mine whenever I want to watch.
Love The Cloud!
by Hallieboo5 on 2020/07/30 11:47
PLAYON Cloud is so much better and user friendly than the desktop version! I wish I hadn’t waited so long to try it! 😊
Best App I've Found
by Haley_13 on 2020/07/24 02:50
This is by far the best app I've ever found for streaming. Combined with my apple HDMI AV I couldn't be happier!!!
Ripoff
by hoopes4908 on 2020/07/14 23:08
So overpriced. Get plex much cheaper
Amazing app, great service
by Cuse231 on 2020/07/02 20:50
This app is wonderful...offering almost every video streaming platform you could want (almost!), and allows you to record and take videos with you on the go. You record in the cloud and download to your device. It’s useful to build your own library and watch on myriad devices (iPad, phone, TV, PC/laptop). Recording quality is excellent and file size is very reasonable. Their customer service is excellent too. Anytime I’ve had a technical issue (and they do occasionally happen), they respond quickly, efficiently, and very personably. They occasionally have $0.10/recording specials but even at $0.15, that’s an excellent deal. I highly recommend this app to my friends with children (and even those without)!
Won’t take my Comcast info anymore
by Hoya94 on 2020/05/25 23:04
It won’t let me log in my Comcast information saying unable to log on with information provided or that it can only record in the US, which is where I am. I click on PlayOn support and it just send me back to the channels page. Please fix this!
Does support still exist?
by Neoatticus on 2020/05/22 20:55
I can’t login. Your support website tells me on safari that it can’t work due to safari’s cookie restriction, when opened with other browsers, your website doesn’t exist. All of the pages don’t exist, even the homepage. So I’m at a loss as to what to do here.
Great app
by Will 89 89 on 2020/05/20 04:14
I use both PlayOn desktop and playon cloud and love both. PlayOn cloud is more convenient but PlayOn desktop is cheaper (one time fee). With PlayOn, I can watch GOT, Ballers and Silicon Valley without having to subscribe to HBO. I got a free trial and recorded all episodes to all those shows.
Movies
by James J 1984 on 2020/05/20 03:58
Save all my movies favorite TV shows really ni
Great for commuting and slow internet!
by krlargent on 2020/05/18 23:46
When I go home to visit my parents, they have such slow internet (and no cell service!) that I can’t stream anything. I love using PlayOn Cloud to be able to keep up with my shows!
Love it
by badboychronic on 2020/05/14 00:15
I have been a TiVo fan for years and it has made it were I can’t stand to look at ads. If I could not TiVo a show I did not look at it now I feel I have total control 20 cents per show is a good price if you ask me for all it does . iTunes is 1.99 per I only have one favor to ask, if there is ever a sign you all may go away please let us know ahead of time so that I can make plans. Love it
Play on
by epicfail090 on 2020/05/13 10:04
Works perfectly so far pairs up great with projector for outdoor weekend movie nights. Social distancing of course.
Not for HBO NOW
by WoodieSd on 2020/05/07 01:51
I got the app for HBO NOW. Worked for a while and then started giving me an error code. I reported it to tech support and they told me they were working on it. I then did a web search and found people having the same problem over a year ago.
great product
by Fogpuppy on 2020/04/30 06:18
Really easy to use. Nicely integrated with my streaming services. I just wish it recorded a little high quality I videos
Perfect.
by Resonance on 2020/04/24 21:43
It does exactly what it is supposed to do. The interface is intuitive and easy to use. I look forward to a Mac version of this software.
Overcoming HughesNet Limitations
by FarmerCW on 2020/04/22 15:25
This is what I needed to download stream only video and cast it to my TV. It allows me to schedule the download for overnight using “bonus” bandwidth. The only problem I’ve found is that close caption timing is so far off as to be useless.
I can’t stream and this saved me
by Graycomment on 2020/04/18 20:49
We live with limited bandwidth and can’t stream video. By putting our shows in the cloud DVR we can download them at our leisure to our laptop and play them without interruption on the TV.
Fits the bill for me
by ET from LA on 2020/04/18 01:11
We live in a rural area without wired internet service. PlayLater and PlayOn Cloud have been extremely valuable to us stretching out our data plans. They work extremely well for our needs.
What’s not to love
by Dumolebob on 2020/04/16 23:34
What’s not to love - it’s free, it works pUrfectly! Not much more! anyone could say!
Excellent app for saving your sanity
by RJenson on 2020/04/05 13:19
In this time of binge watching. This app lets you find your things to watch and get them onto a device that your less abled folks can ‘drive’. Real game changer for those with limited motor functions.
Works very well!
by Dude Rocks!!! on 2020/04/04 07:58
Used PlayOn Cloud to watch series while on the airplane and it worked really well.
Great app
by MIssPristoyou on 2020/03/23 04:02
Love PlayOn. I utilize it to keep a library of things recorded in the off chance our broadband goes down. (which it has for weeks at a time...) Not much else we can do during those times for television. It also cuts the commercials out when Hulu does not do that, even during recorded shows. (super annoying, Hulu...) All in all, a great, user-friendly app.
Cannot connect to server
by kmdk1737689 on 2020/03/20 20:56
Worked for a while but cant now. I get ‘cannot connect to server’. When I reached support they told me to submit a ticket within the app but not sure how when it wont connect to let me.
Love the app until now.
by ::xzx:: on 2020/03/13 02:49
What have you done? Can’t open my 250 gb of video! Running latest IOS, won’t play with or without Wi-Fi or data. What have you done???
Great App!
by TILA8861 on 2020/03/11 19:22
The only thing I would like are a few more networks to record from.
PlayOn cloud
by sweetie wifee on 2020/03/06 16:04
So easy to use PlayOn Cloud .... it is well worth the purchase
Great app
by sam samak on 2020/03/05 06:30
Easy to use High quality recording I use it for recording scenes from movies for educational training and learning more about the American accent and aspects of English conversations, it really helped lot. Thanks 😊 for all the people who worked on this app , you are the best 🤗🌹
I love this app but one thing that bother me
by Simplynoone on 2020/03/02 17:10
I wish that this app can be downloaded on MacBooks I know it’s a google play app but like it’s on iOS and that completely different from google play. But the app is working fine. 100% recommend
Refund
by WinterStorm35 on 2020/02/20 15:09
I don’t like the app since it make’s it hard for people to cancel there subscription to it and I only tried it for a few days last year then got rid of the app and now I am being charged for an app that I don’t have anymore and now I want my refund for it for the months that it took money out of my Mom’s bank account and put back in it.....so please give me back my Mom’s money ! That is the reason y I am not giving this app any stars since it is a very POOR POOR POOR service to work with since I did tried to cancel and it won’t let me do it and I tried to do it again today and since it expires today and it still won’t let me🔥😠😡🤬!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great service
by Bigbaldbob on 2020/02/10 12:14
Easy and inexpensive way to record movies and TV!
Nothing but problems
by cvbiy on 2020/02/09 21:47
I continually have trouble opening the app. Keep getting a message that it can’t connect with the playon servers. Try downloading the app again, but still have problem. Then sometime later I try it again and it works just fine. Super frustrating!
Road trip
by Thumpy68 on 2020/02/08 15:40
I love this App. I was able to easily download movies to my iPad for a long road trip.
Couldn’t use it!
by 3Kidz18 on 2020/01/27 23:55
It refused to let me sign into my other accounts. It kept telling me it was an invalid username and password. Even when I looked it up on the primary account AND changed ALL my passwords to ALL my other entertainment apps, it STILL told me the password and username was invalid!
Wow
by Mlb8888 on 2020/01/25 14:27
Get it and use it. Great app. Simple and practical.
Great app
by Quinn1494 on 2020/01/20 17:47
Great app for being able to watch movies and shows offline.
The best

Great idea
by makaike on 2020/01/10 18:50
I'll pay $5 for the ability to edit commercials alone. Nice app.
Great app
by robin terrell on 2019/12/29 01:56
Really convenient and easy to use.
Fabulous app for offline content viewing
by HowardRoark007 on 2019/12/22 18:05
Best app to download and see content on your schedule. Specially with my crazy international travel schedule.
My take on the app
by imprimeneo on 2019/12/14 12:01
This is a good app for watching a show
Amazingly actually works like it says
by Tonytone2222 on 2019/12/10 02:12
Great interface and easy to use access to download pretty much anything. As long as you have an actual account that you already pay for. I use offline downloads a lot so it works great for me. Being able to download anything on HBO to watch without worrying about my cell signal and data is a godsend. Only other downside is the downloads are really slow. Still, I have no regrets
Skip the headaches
by MurmurFlock on 2019/11/29 01:47
PlayOn cloud handles all the setting issues of the old personal pc version. Love it!
Great app for my purposes
by Lkinak on 2019/11/24 21:48
I travel a lot and enjoy the ability to download media when convenient to watch when convenient. I subscribe to several streaming services and PlayOn Cloud supports most. PlayOn seems to get more robust and improvement seems a priority.
A really neat solution to an Apple shortcoming
by Xapprat on 2019/11/21 21:50
I purchased an Apple TV so we could cast Netflix and Amazon movies to it when we were in our RV without internet service. It turns out that neither of them will work with Apple for whatever reason. With PlayOn Cloud I can save movies from both providers and mirror then from my iPad and iPhone to my TV perfectly. As an added bonus I can download them to my PC and save them to an external hard drive.
BEST APP EVER!
by Machine Gun Britni on 2019/11/20 21:46
so easy to use & great for long flights! idk what i would do without this app!
Awesome

Great app
Hbo Now all the sudden quit linking to PlayOn cloud app
by haaasaaa on 2019/11/12 18:54
Started off great using this app but all the sudden my playon cloud app quit linking to my HBO Now account. It says “username and password are correct, but no active hbo now subscription found.” Contacted the playon cloud support people about this twice, but haven’t heard anything back... Other than this issue, the playon cloud app works great.
Def recommend! Exactly what I was looking for 👏
by gjparks on 2019/11/12 16:14
Definitely a must have app that does exactly what it says & worth it. I searched the longest time everywhere, finally I found this & I've never been happier. There's Play On Cloud, Play On desktop, Play On for iPhone & Android. Save movies you own & anything rented within time limit, song's, videos, etc. This app does exactly what it says & no hassles at all 👏 Fantastic App. I got the lifetime desktop version on sale for $19.99 & can record whatever I have a subscription to, like Amazon, Netflix, Showtime etc. Check out the developer website. I'm so happy I found this. Have a good one. Thank you developers of this app. You Rock 👋😎
Truly great all in one solution for off line viewing
by mediastor on 2019/11/04 13:04
Best product out there
5 Star Support From Skip 👍
by Airborne82ndSF on 2019/10/21 13:41
In the beginning I had a lot of issues with this app. I contacted support and received a response from a support tech named Skip. The man was terrific he resolved ALL my issues compensated me for down time via credits. With support like this you can’t run into a problem that can’t be resolved. Highly Recommend!!!!!!
Great App - Needs More Channels
by HisLittleOne on 2019/10/18 18:30
I really enjoy this app but hope they add more channels — like Hallmark Movie channels, UP Faith & Family, Pure Flix etc.
Cancel my $2.99 order thanks

Works But Needs Functional Improvements, Expensive
by PhillipDampier on 2019/09/10 12:46
This app is designed to work as a portable DVR for streaming services. It uses PlayOn’s computers to capture recordings from a selection of services you already subscribe to and store them in the cloud or on your device for on the go viewing. This can also be a solution to capture shows expiring from your favorite streaming platform to view later. It works by capturing streams in real time, so it can take a long time to build a library. The service is easy enough to use but limited to a handful of cable on-demand services (Comcast and Spectrum), major streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, CBS, and other network owned platforms, and many smaller streaming services can also be recorded through the Amazon Prime Video platform, if you subscribe to them directly through Amazon. Recordings default at SD video, which in my view is suitable only for viewing on a phone. PlayOn recordings are not as clear and crisp as directly viewing on a streaming platform, so you should always remember to reset the recording setting to HD if watching on a tablet or TV. Note: 1080p and 4K recordings are not supported — a MAJOR flaw. Subtitles are supported only if you enable them on the streaming service. You cannot switch them on or off through the PlayOn app. They are either always on or always off. Sorting your library through the app Is also cumbersome and should be improved. It is a shame you can only record one show at a time. Cloud based services by their nature should eliminate these kinds of arbitrary limits. The service is also expensive, and their advertising is misleading because the per show cost they promote assumes you spend upwards of $30 or more per month to get that price. There is no flat rate plan and as a result, I am very judicious about what I record, which defeats the versatility of apps like this. You also have to deal with cloud storage capacity limits, meaning you will need to download and store a significant video library on your own computer or face paying even more. Your cable company probably sells you a more capable DVR service for under $20 a month, although portability is an issue. These costs need to come down if PlayOn wants people to use its app without a second thought. In all it is a useful app and easy to use. Just be prepared to be selective about what you record or be willing to shell out regularly to buy recording credits.
great app
by Raarrm on 2019/09/02 02:59
finally one place all your streaming can live, and offline works every time.
Love this app
by zeekerone on 2019/09/02 00:43
I have used this program for sometime now and use it all the time.
It’s awesome to build a library of personalized content
by lostcypher on 2019/09/01 18:49
For years I’ve been a subscriber to all the major players and have watched great content come and go... well... no more! With the PlayOn cloud app I’m able to build personalized libraries for myself and my family on our home network... not a huge fan of the price per recording, hopefully they are able to come up with a lifetime fee of some sort, but other than that, it’s been a go to app since I downloaded it.
Wonderful App
by Dan D Shorts on 2019/09/01 04:18
This may be my most used app. Super convenient to be able to watch my favorite stuff anytime on any of my devices. It’s a monthly fee, but reasonable for that convenience. Love it.
Worst ever
by Jason_Gunner on 2019/08/28 22:30
This app says free trial and then once you fill it out you pay $9.99 immediately and it slows down your whole phone do not download this app not worth it.
Great ap!!!
by Hunny2phly on 2019/08/22 13:17
Very happy!
Hulu offline
by Spamela27 on 2019/08/20 23:34
Hulu does not offer offline viewing. This is a great alternative! I was able to easily record and download shows. Keep in mind you have to record each show first before you can download. The recording takes as long as the show is, so make sure you record well before you leave your WiFi/home. Once it records it takes another good while to download. I record and download the day before I want to watch the show.
Can’t connect using app
by Brohmer on 2019/08/15 01:50
Always says can’t connect to servers when I try to connect. Used to love this app. Not anymore
Stellar customer support
by Mcdmp57 on 2019/08/15 00:26
I had a problem finding a channel and a billing problem. I contacted support and both issues were resolved quickly and very much to my satisfaction. Fantastic app!
Sound quality is terrible
by thisisajoke name on 2019/08/11 14:37
Cancelled after my trial, show was unwatchable. Gave 2 stars only because picture quality was good. Recording takes the literal length of the show/movie you’re recording
Great product.
by Frannypoo on 2019/08/09 20:49
Is so great. Work takes me places that don’t have internet and helps make those hot nights better
Excellent

Won’t Login Any Longer
by Florida Outdoorsman on 2019/07/27 13:36
Worked great the first day. Next day I could no longer access the app, kept giving me messages that there is a problem with internet connection but everything else in house is working great with internet. Spent too much time researching with no answers on how to fix.
So good and so easy to use!
by rreading on 2019/07/22 13:06
Slick interface and seamless, easy operation. Such a great app!
Great but doesn’t record
by theboywholovesroblox on 2019/07/21 10:24
I started the free trail and paid the money but unfortunately wasn’t recording so can you fix that for me please
Just what I neeed
by dusappionted on 2019/07/21 01:57
This is the perfect (and long overdue) tool for saving and watching downloaded netflix, HBO, or Amazon content in foreign countries where the same material is normally blocked. I love this app!
Quality
by Fxhgd on 2019/07/19 13:59
I’m really pleased with the video quality of the downloads. Good job!
Really nice
by Rexbard on 2019/07/17 12:13
Excellent app and only getting better! Sure, I wish it had a few more channels, but it easily covers the major streams and does everything I want. Well worth getting!
Crashes everytime
by JoshuaRML on 2019/07/15 04:13
It was a very nice app and service before. Current version crashes every time I launch this app. It is totally unusable. I hope all the bugs are fixed soon.
Great service
by mbr710 on 2019/07/12 16:51
I love being able to record and playback movies & shows on my tablet. Great price
Good customer service.
by Erkmtrm on 2019/07/09 22:56
Good customer service. Address issues in a timely manner. But lately have had a big problem accessing downloads. Login Error prompt, then Cannot Connect to Server. Occasionally, I can bypass this.
So good - please add YouTube!
by Disgusted3627282 on 2019/07/05 22:48
Awesome app
Two charges??
by Eveleah on 2019/07/04 23:08
Just paid the $5 a month to use now asking me to buy credits for each download. What am I paying $5/ month for then??!
Everything is great.... but not really
by DinoNuggetPhantoms on 2019/06/28 16:47
Ok, I was so hyped because im going on a 16 hour flight. I wanted to watch Naruto Shippuden and it had Naruto Shippuden. I was going to record, them it says I need some stupid thing called recording credits. Please take that recording credits of the app because I don’t have power over my money (I’m 11) and my parents certainly won’t get me recording credits. So please help because my flights is in less than a month.
Suoer happy with App.
by Bdydbdb on 2019/06/27 16:41
Surprised how simple to use. Would recommend.
It used to be great...
by TARDIS Take Me With You on 2019/06/24 11:23
This is my go-to app to watch my shows. I don’t mind paying for episodes because they skip the commercials for me, which is awesome! But recently every time I’ve tried to open the app it says, “Login error.” I updated the app, and it was working, but last night I was trying to download an episode. It wouldn’t download, and then when I closed and reopened the app it was back to saying, “Login error.” It’s still not working. I’m not sure if anyone else is having this issue but I’ve never had a problem with this app before so this is frustrating.
A+
by jsmiley400 on 2019/06/18 10:54
Perfect for flights
Awesome
by Deadwoodchap on 2019/06/16 08:35

Works for Hulu and hbo
Yes! GOT finale. Out in the boonies.
by Drill Rigger on 2019/05/23 04:35
I can finally DVR with my HBO Now account while working out in the boonies with shotty cell service & lousy wifi spots. Was gonna wait until the end of the work hitch but of course, I ran into so many major spoilers I may as well watch it after a shift! Looks like it worked great. Got the said finale & the latest 2 #The100 episodes. Great app!
Do not download!!
by sharkeyyyyyy on 2019/05/17 22:28
Scam!!! Yes the app works but it’s impossible to cancel the subscription. I’ve reached out to support 3 times. There’s no option to cancel on the app or their website. I called my bank to mark their charges as fraud since they were ill not cancel my subscription. What a horrible company to scam people. Seriously do not download. All the 5 star reviews are fake, I wish I would have read more 0 star reviews before I purchased this.
Can’t connect to server
by Tammarroo on 2019/05/12 21:52
Was excited to try this (lots of travel coming up) but the app just keeps spinning and telling me it can’t connect to the server. WiFi connected just fine. Uninstalled and reinstalled app ... can’t get anywhere with it. Bummer.
Simple to use
by Naksuwiaksnriw7274691817 on 2019/05/08 20:01
I was looking for a way to download shows from for my flight to Hawaii since they don’t have WiFi on the plane. This was a life saver!
Cannot use log-in credentials.
by cp117183 on 2019/05/07 19:54
I have access to HBOGO through my university, and it normally requires an external login at my school’s login screen when I try to access it on the HBOGO website. This app does not allow me to do that; even on the desktop app. If this problem is resolved, it would be a great app
No resumable downloads?!
by insomniac77 on 2019/05/06 05:42
Nearly finished my download during a layover, but the airport wifi got spotty and I flipped to cellular. I turned on the 'allow cellular downloads' option, but the download started over. So disappointed.
Awesome
by slvrcobra03 on 2019/05/04 04:38
This app is awesome to record old shows and new ones. Very good video quality.
PlayOn Cloud works well with a good connection.
by Steve7Rom on 2019/04/30 08:28
Just do the predownload and download when you have a good wifi or hotspot connection. Data roaming is too slow.
Great app, would like a few enhancements
by EM in Norfolk on 2018/03/02 21:30
Great app providing a useful service at a low cost with easy functionality. Would love two basic enhancements if anyone out there is listening. First, start recordings where they left off when watching something in more than one sitting. This happens if I have to close the app for a few minutes but if it’s a longer amount of time (say, start in morning then resume in evening) the app defaults to start the recording from the beginning. Second, sorting of recordings should be A to Z, not Z to A. For example, if I download 5 episodes of a show the 5th episode is first by default. They allow you to switch the order but you have to do it every time you go to your recordings which is kind of annoying. Great app overall that I’ve recommended to quite a few folks since using it myself.
Still Excellent After Many Years!
by AppFan3 on 2020/09/01 12:48
I’ve used the PlayOn cloud app for many years, and it has always been a great app. The ability to preserve movie and tv favorites is wonderful, and channels such as the new HBO and Peacock are added as they become available. I have had only two technical issues in my years using the app. Each time I emailed support and they were friendly, responsive and very helpful. I suspect that if anyone is not receiving a response, the email must not be reaching app support. I highly recommend this app and look forward to its continued development.
So far so good!
by OctoberC on 2018/04/02 18:12
Just downloaded... they offer a deal when you sign up for cloud storage, which is fine & good & all, ppl godda make money... but it seems that you get 7 days of storage for free & they offer packages if you want to build a library I suppose... So, just here to say it looks like you can still get functionality for free as long as it’s used sparingly... good to know because I didn’t want to be pressured first & don’t think I’ll be using it very much but this week I’m taking a flight & want offline viewing...
Crashes 10 seconds after opening
by David Z- on 2019/03/19 09:00
Used to work but recently it won’t stay open for more than 10 seconds before it just force closes itself. No matter what I do, rebooting, trying to delete stuff before it crashes, it keeps crashing. Using an iPad mini 4 updated to the latest iOS version and also PlayOn cloud latest version. Can’t even submit a support request via the app because it crashes before I can hit submit to send the report. Also, the skip ads feature doesn’t work on most networks, such as cbs and fox, it ends up just skipping parts of the show at random, so it’s useless. Overall it’s a really buggy app, if there was any alternative I would choose it. And this is on an Apple device, why should it be buggy?
It’s awesome to build a library of personalized content
by lostcypher on 2019/09/01 18:49
For years I’ve been a subscriber to all the major players and have watched great content come and go... well... no more! With the PlayOn cloud app I’m able to build personalized libraries for myself and my family on our home network... not a huge fan of the price per recording, hopefully they are able to come up with a lifetime fee of some sort, but other than that, it’s been a go to app since I downloaded it.
Amazingly actually works like it says
by Tonytone2222 on 2019/12/10 02:12
Great interface and easy to use access to download pretty much anything. As long as you have an actual account that you already pay for. I use offline downloads a lot so it works great for me. Being able to download anything on HBO to watch without worrying about my cell signal and data is a godsend. Only other downside is the downloads are really slow. Still, I have no regrets
Slow to get back to customers
by marioone1 on 2019/01/28 12:56
I love this service WHEN it works but i admit i put in my cc wrong three times to get cloud service and i was cut off so i contacted tech service two days ago meanwhile I’m on vacation and have no access to my movies i paid for and paid to download and was paying to try to store in iCloud I have had this for close to a year and no problems but when you log in or put wrong info in three times your cut off and no access to movies you paid for until customer service gets back to you and so far i have been waiting two days while on vacation Which they say 48 hrs but when your on vacation and have no access to your movies that’s eternity
Pretty dope app
by Totally Not A Computer on 2019/03/01 20:08
I do some edits on instagram and usually i spend like 3 hrs jst trying to find footage from random shows. With this tho its legit all right there easy to download and everything. Only problem is u hv to hv an account on the channel u wanna download from and u hv to pay for a subscription. Tbh tho its worth it bc the quality of the videos r great and the upload pretty quickly. And its way easier than going to shady sites and getting viruses or whtever
Refund
by WinterStorm35 on 2020/02/20 15:09
I don’t like the app since it make’s it hard for people to cancel there subscription to it and I only tried it for a few days last year then got rid of the app and now I am being charged for an app that I don’t have anymore and now I want my refund for it for the months that it took money out of my Mom’s bank account and put back in it.....so please give me back my Mom’s money ! That is the reason y I am not giving this app any stars since it is a very POOR POOR POOR service to work with since I did tried to cancel and it won’t let me do it and I tried to do it again today and since it expires today and it still won’t let me🔥😠😡🤬!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing app, great service
by Cuse231 on 2020/07/02 20:50
This app is wonderful...offering almost every video streaming platform you could want (almost!), and allows you to record and take videos with you on the go. You record in the cloud and download to your device. It’s useful to build your own library and watch on myriad devices (iPad, phone, TV, PC/laptop). Recording quality is excellent and file size is very reasonable. Their customer service is excellent too. Anytime I’ve had a technical issue (and they do occasionally happen), they respond quickly, efficiently, and very personably. They occasionally have $0.10/recording specials but even at $0.15, that’s an excellent deal. I highly recommend this app to my friends with children (and even those without)!
Buggy
by Azure Guy on 2018/05/16 12:21
I’ve subscribed to PlayOn Cloud for about two years. A great idea but these are the issues I have had: 1) in the absence of a WiFi signal (eg on an airplane) the app crashes and does not open; 2) I am unable to transfer my recordings on my iPad through iTunes to my iMac. It only transfers perhaps a dozen of my 60 or so recordings. I have worked with customer support repeatedly with no resolution; 3) customer support, when there is (I haven’t heard back for three weeks despite repeated tech support tickets created), has always taken anywhere from two to four days to respond. I wonder if they are financially struggling. Too. Ad since it is a great idea.
Great little App
by the NJ Dude on 2019/03/14 22:27
I really like the ease of this app. It works great for recordings for a plane ride. You need to consider the following: - you need to have a subscription. For example I use it for HBO which I am a member but which does not allow you to download - you need to download to your cloud before you need it and it takes the original show time to tape a show. So for example a one hour HBO episode of GOT will take one hour to record . So just do it over night for 5 shows. - then you need to download it on your device Sounds like a lot but it is not - and it is worth it to get your shows on a plane and not need the WiFi. Overall pleased - watched 5 GOT episodes on my long plane ride to get ready for the new season.
It used to be great...
by TARDIS Take Me With You on 2019/06/24 11:23
This is my go-to app to watch my shows. I don’t mind paying for episodes because they skip the commercials for me, which is awesome! But recently every time I’ve tried to open the app it says, “Login error.” I updated the app, and it was working, but last night I was trying to download an episode. It wouldn’t download, and then when I closed and reopened the app it was back to saying, “Login error.” It’s still not working. I’m not sure if anyone else is having this issue but I’ve never had a problem with this app before so this is frustrating.
Pretty good technically, but they make it hard to browse
by Benconsult on 2017/11/08 23:36
It’s ok - and makes a pretty good recording, but they should make it easier to watch by adding a channel in my *already purchased* playon application for the pc. Also, why is it so hard to browse titles of programs? I have to go to genre/then to “page number” selection/ then to first letter of program. Sheesh that’s terrible! Now you can say that’s Amazon’s fault because of how it’s arranged on their servers, but playon cloud could do a lot toward ease-of-use by aggregating some of those titles for me so I don’t have to page so much and so awkwardly to see the title names.
Really good customer services
by Beatka Ka on 2018/02/13 21:35
Whenever I have a problem, for example, I duplicated my account (don’t ask how....:)), they respond and find a solution. Same when I could not login to some channels. If you want to build your library to watch things later I highly recommend this app. I wish it would be available for Mac laptop software.
Core functionality is great, but usability issues remain
by Sabor de Soledad on 2019/04/16 14:49
Overall, PlayOn does what is promised once you get your accounts connected. However, it has not yet been updated to support IPad Pro 11 resolution, wasting almost a third of the screen on black bars. Other reviewers also mentioned the issues with resuming a recording where you left off. That works for me sometimes, other times I have to remember where I was and fast forward. Would be a five star review from me once these are resolved.
Poor, clueless support, poor app, poor quality video
by twhiting9275 on 2018/08/16 23:46
Support takes FOREVER to get an initial response ( 3-4 days ), then simply just regurgitates canned responses that are irrelevant to the actual problem at hand. Weeks later? Incomprehensible responses blaming a users config , or local environment for their own software issues. Application is incredibly poorly designed, not allowing users to delete queued recordings, not allowing user to easily modify order of queued recordings ( drag and drop doesn’t work if you have 100+ queued recordings ) Recordings always embed users name, email and IP in some faux attempt to circumvent piracy ( LOL ). Recordings ALWAYS buffer for about 20 seconds, and when they start, EVERY TIME, have about 30-90 seconds of incredibly poor quality image ( like it’s buffering, image is jagged ). Recordings cost a good deal, both in space and actual $$$. Good luck getting ANYWHERE with this support team, or application. It’s garbage from the ground up.
Terrible app, terrible support !
by Lisa2118 on 2018/10/30 05:43
I tried to use this app before a plane trip. Downloaded shows took hours to show up. I couldn’t get what did load to play and when I tried to get support they don’t get back to you. My plane trip was over before a third of my downloads showed up. I never did hear from support and it’s two days later. I had to buy more credits even with the “free trial “ to get a very small amount downloaded. This app is a rip-off and I will just purchase on board WiFi in the future. Thanks for not getting back to me. Save your time and money and use a different method.
5 Star Support From Skip 👍
by Airborne82ndSF on 2019/10/21 13:41
In the beginning I had a lot of issues with this app. I contacted support and received a response from a support tech named Skip. The man was terrific he resolved ALL my issues compensated me for down time via credits. With support like this you can’t run into a problem that can’t be resolved. Highly Recommend!!!!!!
Good Idea, Terrible App
by katieeeee xx on 2019/02/17 22:15
I love this app.... when it works. I’ve been using Playon Cloud for a few months now, and I have to write to support at least once every other week. The app never allows you to log in, forgets your plan, or deletes the queue. Support takes forever to get back to you. It’s basically useless unless you happen to get it on a good day when by some miracle, you’re logged in and can actually record things. Honestly, if I didn’t have so many recordings, I’d stop paying. I still might stop paying. The app needs to be fixed and support needs to get better. Period.
Unreal
by Bdhu2001 on 2019/03/18 22:46
PlayOn cloud allows you to take your videos with you even if you have an apple device. In addition, you don’t have to constantly check to see if video download has expired or if the video is still available. Truly helpful when planning a trip out of state or out of the country.
Love it
by lostcause627 on 2018/08/02 22:33
But I’d really like to put recordings in groups/folders and be able to choose a default sort each group alphabetically or chronologically A/D. The groups could be created in the Cloud and then represented on the Device if at least one member of the group has been downloaded. Also would be nice to be able to select the channels that appear on the home menu in channel settings.
Stopped loading on iPad/iPhone
by bss189 on 2018/07/12 16:46
Was using this fine. All of a sudden for over a week the app does not log in on my iOS devices - iPad (latest version), iPhone 7 + - wrote to tech support, no reply yet. Sometimes will eventually fail and say failed to log in. Option to try again - same long wait and nothing - or login, which I try and it fails. Tried resetting password. Able to enter credentials. Then same long wait and nothing. Epic fail. Won’t be using again. My credits are useless. I would use play on desktop but does not work on Mac!
Great app!
by Keri Lynn Jo on 2018/09/06 13:20
So far so good. I am recording/ downloading 2 seasons worth of shows onto my iPad for a trip to Europe. The app is easy to use and i have no complaints so far. I turned the iPad into airplane mode to test watch a few minutes of a few episodes and it seems to be working well. Really excited about this!
Great Show Saver
by Stop dumping me on 2019/01/02 22:18
This comes in very handy during those times when house internet is slow or down. I use it to record shows that are about to expire and am unable to do so on my lousy DSL (only thing available where we live) that is constantly going down.
Great App
by captain1charlie on 2018/05/01 11:21
Ability to Download and save on your device when you go where you don’t have Service then Watch on your own time. Streaming apps you have to connect to your account every few days to watch your downloaded Videos. Don’t mind the average cost about .25 a episode
Perfect!
by jenim5412 on 2019/04/10 17:37
Just what I wanted. A way to download HBO go, etc even though HBO go doesn’t enable it. This is BETTER than expected. Not only can I now do that, but I can download Netflix and others that aren’t slated for download! As a rural dweller with only limited WiFi available, this is a total game changer that will FINALLY enable me to cut the cable noose!
Love this APP!
by 505Cmg on 2020/08/05 00:32
Great APP - when are you getting peacock channel???? Hate commercials and cut the cord? This is for u! Very reasonably priced too! I wish recording did not take so long however based on price point - I’ll survive! Channel updates are needed too - so easy whether you download app on ROKU or cast to TV - so happy I found this gem
It's 2019 and you don't have play resume?
by already freaking taken on 2019/01/18 17:00
Watching a show or movie and you get a phone call or text you have to start it all over and find your place again. It's incredibly annoying. Wish there was another alternative.
Amazing!
by SuperRockinDoc on 2017/10/13 17:13
The program will download almost anything. It does take more time than a high speed digital download because it plays the video in real time and records it as it plays the video. This just means that a one hour video will take one hour to download.
An Excellent Alternative to Constant Commercials
by Gralarry2 on 2019/04/24 14:33
To use it is to love it. The only thing I wish you could add would be that one could know and keep track of the shows that you have already watched. Then I would give this app six stars if I could.
As long as you don’t need support
by seer14 on 2018/01/27 21:41
This works as long as you don’t need support. If you need support, they ask you for your credentials. I have an issue with the showtime anytime channel, and as I’m an AT&T U-verse customer, I would have to given them my credentials to my entire AT&T account. <no thank you> after several rounds of e-mail support it was stated again, that they can’t reproduce the issue and would just have to wait until another customer has the issue and is willing to share credentials.
Great app for my purposes
by Lkinak on 2019/11/24 21:48
I travel a lot and enjoy the ability to download media when convenient to watch when convenient. I subscribe to several streaming services and PlayOn Cloud supports most. PlayOn seems to get more robust and improvement seems a priority.
Did not get the special offer
by JohnBoy5562 on 2018/01/07 00:56
I downloaded this app and it said not sure but like 15 credits for 1.99 but I had in app purchases off so I didn’t get them. But I would turn on in app purchases on before you start the app. It does what it said it would do. Love this app
Easy Peasy
by barley2 on 2019/03/09 16:15
I can finally watch my shows on an airplane. Easy to automatically save shows and movies to your iPhone. I load up on kid-friendly content before flying and just hand the kids my phone. Works for long car rides too.
Irreplaceable
by Fpaypal on 2018/05/12 17:35
I live on sketchy internet that buffers too much. I can download what I am going to watch ahead if time and know that my evening will not be ruined by buffering or down internet. I can also download at friend’s fast internet and take it home on my device.
Great app
by sam samak on 2020/03/05 06:30
Easy to use High quality recording I use it for recording scenes from movies for educational training and learning more about the American accent and aspects of English conversations, it really helped lot. Thanks 😊 for all the people who worked on this app , you are the best 🤗🌹
Cool if you need it
by Ajbuda on 2017/08/28 02:06
We have no wifi for the time being and no hotspot ability, so being able to record and download my game of thrones from HBO now and then use apowersoft to move the file to my computer for watching had been key
Everything is great.... but not really
by DinoNuggetPhantoms on 2019/06/28 16:47
Ok, I was so hyped because im going on a 16 hour flight. I wanted to watch Naruto Shippuden and it had Naruto Shippuden. I was going to record, them it says I need some stupid thing called recording credits. Please take that recording credits of the app because I don’t have power over my money (I’m 11) and my parents certainly won’t get me recording credits. So please help because my flights is in less than a month.
Awesome app
by kshowell on 2018/06/23 16:31
I love this app. It is great for downloading movies. You don’t want to miss this one. The only thing is I wish they would add more channels. And speed up the downloads a little faster. Other than that, for recording movies and downloaded this is the best on the market
Great for commuting and slow internet!
by krlargent on 2020/05/18 23:46
When I go home to visit my parents, they have such slow internet (and no cell service!) that I can’t stream anything. I love using PlayOn Cloud to be able to keep up with my shows!
Excellent app for saving your sanity
by RJenson on 2020/04/05 13:19
In this time of binge watching. This app lets you find your things to watch and get them onto a device that your less abled folks can ‘drive’. Real game changer for those with limited motor functions.
GENIUS
by Andy Arant on 2017/12/02 02:10
Traveling next week and was wanting to watch some Game of Thrones on my plane ride. $2 for 6 episodes, and they downloaded in an hour onto my iPad. Great for HBO subscribers and other networks that don’t allow users to download for offline watch from the app.
Garbage
by Rip off one on 2018/11/28 15:38
I believe the majority of these reviews are fake. My experience with totally different then the five star rating. Couldn't login the email they are supposed to send you to reset your password even though your password is correct when you enter it. That email is never send I disputed the charges with my credit card company. The reviews out here our untrue I suspected. The developer and or people there working for him or the company I read in the reviews I suspected.
Play on cloud
by Cel32da on 2017/11/15 07:29
I luv this app I get to watch my favorite shows even on the airplane with no WiFi and no cell service I mean you have to download the show before you get on the plane and yes you have to buy credits but it’s so reasonable and worth every penny😊
Overcoming HughesNet Limitations
by FarmerCW on 2020/04/22 15:25
This is what I needed to download stream only video and cast it to my TV. It allows me to schedule the download for overnight using “bonus” bandwidth. The only problem I’ve found is that close caption timing is so far off as to be useless.
Perfect app for holiday travel!
by QAMom1 on 2018/12/13 20:52
I recorded a bunch of shows for my kids to watch on the 8hr car ride over Thanksgiving and they loved it, didn’t fight and even watched together. This app single handedly made holiday driving a pleasure vs a chore. Parenting win! I even snuck in some cool documentaries they loved!
Fits the bill for me
by ET from LA on 2020/04/18 01:11
We live in a rural area without wired internet service. PlayLater and PlayOn Cloud have been extremely valuable to us stretching out our data plans. They work extremely well for our needs.
Great App...
by wd on 2019/02/12 14:24
If you are bandwidth limited(in my case Satellite Internet) but have access to high speed elsewhere(my business). I can record, download to device, play at home. Works great for me. Now if they could only get casting working...

Works well
by Devicifer on 2020/10/07 22:23
I like having them do the recordings elsewhere instead of having my computer do it. That seems to work better.
I love this app!
by Flylulu on 2020/10/05 02:31
Add skipping is the best!
1080?
by MatthewsMom122412 on 2020/09/19 12:56
I love this app but will y’all ever move up to downloading movies in 1080? It would just look so much better on my tv.
Still Excellent After Many Years!
by AppFan3 on 2020/09/01 12:48
I’ve used the PlayOn cloud app for many years, and it has always been a great app. The ability to preserve movie and tv favorites is wonderful, and channels such as the new HBO and Peacock are added as they become available. I have had only two technical issues in my years using the app. Each time I emailed support and they were friendly, responsive and very helpful. I suspect that if anyone is not receiving a response, the email must not be reaching app support. I highly recommend this app and look forward to its continued development.
Worked prefect until I LOST 100 GB in recorded movies & 90 recording credits
by ANNOYED SUBCRIBER on 2020/08/19 19:46
I've been using this app for quite some time… Over a year. Suddenly, all my cloud recordings in my recording credits disappeared. I've tried to contact support three times with zero responses.
Love this APP!
by 505Cmg on 2020/08/05 00:32
Great APP - when are you getting peacock channel???? Hate commercials and cut the cord? This is for u! Very reasonably priced too! I wish recording did not take so long however based on price point - I’ll survive! Channel updates are needed too - so easy whether you download app on ROKU or cast to TV - so happy I found this gem
LOVE THIS!
by Wombat's Ma on 2020/08/02 05:53
I can save my very favorites forever with this app. Easy to use, record, download to my device and it’s mine whenever I want to watch.
Love The Cloud!
by Hallieboo5 on 2020/07/30 11:47
PLAYON Cloud is so much better and user friendly than the desktop version! I wish I hadn’t waited so long to try it! 😊
Best App I've Found
by Haley_13 on 2020/07/24 02:50
This is by far the best app I've ever found for streaming. Combined with my apple HDMI AV I couldn't be happier!!!
Ripoff

So overpriced. Get plex much cheaper
Amazing app, great service
by Cuse231 on 2020/07/02 20:50
This app is wonderful...offering almost every video streaming platform you could want (almost!), and allows you to record and take videos with you on the go. You record in the cloud and download to your device. It’s useful to build your own library and watch on myriad devices (iPad, phone, TV, PC/laptop). Recording quality is excellent and file size is very reasonable. Their customer service is excellent too. Anytime I’ve had a technical issue (and they do occasionally happen), they respond quickly, efficiently, and very personably. They occasionally have $0.10/recording specials but even at $0.15, that’s an excellent deal. I highly recommend this app to my friends with children (and even those without)!
Won’t take my Comcast info anymore
by Hoya94 on 2020/05/25 23:04
It won’t let me log in my Comcast information saying unable to log on with information provided or that it can only record in the US, which is where I am. I click on PlayOn support and it just send me back to the channels page. Please fix this!
Does support still exist?
by Neoatticus on 2020/05/22 20:55
I can’t login. Your support website tells me on safari that it can’t work due to safari’s cookie restriction, when opened with other browsers, your website doesn’t exist. All of the pages don’t exist, even the homepage. So I’m at a loss as to what to do here.
Great app
by Will 89 89 on 2020/05/20 04:14
I use both PlayOn desktop and playon cloud and love both. PlayOn cloud is more convenient but PlayOn desktop is cheaper (one time fee). With PlayOn, I can watch GOT, Ballers and Silicon Valley without having to subscribe to HBO. I got a free trial and recorded all episodes to all those shows.

Great for commuting and slow internet!
by krlargent on 2020/05/18 23:46
When I go home to visit my parents, they have such slow internet (and no cell service!) that I can’t stream anything. I love using PlayOn Cloud to be able to keep up with my shows!
Love it
by badboychronic on 2020/05/14 00:15
I have been a TiVo fan for years and it has made it were I can’t stand to look at ads. If I could not TiVo a show I did not look at it now I feel I have total control 20 cents per show is a good price if you ask me for all it does . iTunes is 1.99 per I only have one favor to ask, if there is ever a sign you all may go away please let us know ahead of time so that I can make plans. Love it
Play on
by epicfail090 on 2020/05/13 10:04
Works perfectly so far pairs up great with projector for outdoor weekend movie nights. Social distancing of course.
Not for HBO NOW
by WoodieSd on 2020/05/07 01:51
I got the app for HBO NOW. Worked for a while and then started giving me an error code. I reported it to tech support and they told me they were working on it. I then did a web search and found people having the same problem over a year ago.
great product
by Fogpuppy on 2020/04/30 06:18
Really easy to use. Nicely integrated with my streaming services. I just wish it recorded a little high quality I videos
Perfect.
by Resonance on 2020/04/24 21:43
It does exactly what it is supposed to do. The interface is intuitive and easy to use. I look forward to a Mac version of this software.
Overcoming HughesNet Limitations
by FarmerCW on 2020/04/22 15:25
This is what I needed to download stream only video and cast it to my TV. It allows me to schedule the download for overnight using “bonus” bandwidth. The only problem I’ve found is that close caption timing is so far off as to be useless.
I can’t stream and this saved me
by Graycomment on 2020/04/18 20:49
We live with limited bandwidth and can’t stream video. By putting our shows in the cloud DVR we can download them at our leisure to our laptop and play them without interruption on the TV.
Fits the bill for me
by ET from LA on 2020/04/18 01:11
We live in a rural area without wired internet service. PlayLater and PlayOn Cloud have been extremely valuable to us stretching out our data plans. They work extremely well for our needs.
What’s not to love
by Dumolebob on 2020/04/16 23:34
What’s not to love - it’s free, it works pUrfectly! Not much more! anyone could say!
Excellent app for saving your sanity
by RJenson on 2020/04/05 13:19
In this time of binge watching. This app lets you find your things to watch and get them onto a device that your less abled folks can ‘drive’. Real game changer for those with limited motor functions.
Works very well!
by Dude Rocks!!! on 2020/04/04 07:58
Used PlayOn Cloud to watch series while on the airplane and it worked really well.
Great app
by MIssPristoyou on 2020/03/23 04:02
Love PlayOn. I utilize it to keep a library of things recorded in the off chance our broadband goes down. (which it has for weeks at a time...) Not much else we can do during those times for television. It also cuts the commercials out when Hulu does not do that, even during recorded shows. (super annoying, Hulu...) All in all, a great, user-friendly app.
Cannot connect to server
by kmdk1737689 on 2020/03/20 20:56
Worked for a while but cant now. I get ‘cannot connect to server’. When I reached support they told me to submit a ticket within the app but not sure how when it wont connect to let me.
Love the app until now.
by ::xzx:: on 2020/03/13 02:49
What have you done? Can’t open my 250 gb of video! Running latest IOS, won’t play with or without Wi-Fi or data. What have you done???
Great App!

The only thing I would like are a few more networks to record from.
PlayOn cloud

So easy to use PlayOn Cloud .... it is well worth the purchase
Great app
by sam samak on 2020/03/05 06:30
Easy to use High quality recording I use it for recording scenes from movies for educational training and learning more about the American accent and aspects of English conversations, it really helped lot. Thanks 😊 for all the people who worked on this app , you are the best 🤗🌹
I love this app but one thing that bother me
by Simplynoone on 2020/03/02 17:10
I wish that this app can be downloaded on MacBooks I know it’s a google play app but like it’s on iOS and that completely different from google play. But the app is working fine. 100% recommend
Refund
by WinterStorm35 on 2020/02/20 15:09
I don’t like the app since it make’s it hard for people to cancel there subscription to it and I only tried it for a few days last year then got rid of the app and now I am being charged for an app that I don’t have anymore and now I want my refund for it for the months that it took money out of my Mom’s bank account and put back in it.....so please give me back my Mom’s money ! That is the reason y I am not giving this app any stars since it is a very POOR POOR POOR service to work with since I did tried to cancel and it won’t let me do it and I tried to do it again today and since it expires today and it still won’t let me🔥😠😡🤬!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great service
by Bigbaldbob on 2020/02/10 12:14
Easy and inexpensive way to record movies and TV!
Nothing but problems
by cvbiy on 2020/02/09 21:47
I continually have trouble opening the app. Keep getting a message that it can’t connect with the playon servers. Try downloading the app again, but still have problem. Then sometime later I try it again and it works just fine. Super frustrating!
Road trip
by Thumpy68 on 2020/02/08 15:40
I love this App. I was able to easily download movies to my iPad for a long road trip.
Couldn’t use it!
by 3Kidz18 on 2020/01/27 23:55
It refused to let me sign into my other accounts. It kept telling me it was an invalid username and password. Even when I looked it up on the primary account AND changed ALL my passwords to ALL my other entertainment apps, it STILL told me the password and username was invalid!
Wow
by Mlb8888 on 2020/01/25 14:27
Get it and use it. Great app. Simple and practical.

Best app to download and see content on your schedule. Specially with my crazy international travel schedule.
My take on the app
by imprimeneo on 2019/12/14 12:01
This is a good app for watching a show
Amazingly actually works like it says
by Tonytone2222 on 2019/12/10 02:12
Great interface and easy to use access to download pretty much anything. As long as you have an actual account that you already pay for. I use offline downloads a lot so it works great for me. Being able to download anything on HBO to watch without worrying about my cell signal and data is a godsend. Only other downside is the downloads are really slow. Still, I have no regrets
Skip the headaches
by MurmurFlock on 2019/11/29 01:47
PlayOn cloud handles all the setting issues of the old personal pc version. Love it!
Great app for my purposes
by Lkinak on 2019/11/24 21:48
I travel a lot and enjoy the ability to download media when convenient to watch when convenient. I subscribe to several streaming services and PlayOn Cloud supports most. PlayOn seems to get more robust and improvement seems a priority.
A really neat solution to an Apple shortcoming
by Xapprat on 2019/11/21 21:50
I purchased an Apple TV so we could cast Netflix and Amazon movies to it when we were in our RV without internet service. It turns out that neither of them will work with Apple for whatever reason. With PlayOn Cloud I can save movies from both providers and mirror then from my iPad and iPhone to my TV perfectly. As an added bonus I can download them to my PC and save them to an external hard drive.
BEST APP EVER!
by Machine Gun Britni on 2019/11/20 21:46

Hbo Now all the sudden quit linking to PlayOn cloud app
by haaasaaa on 2019/11/12 18:54
Started off great using this app but all the sudden my playon cloud app quit linking to my HBO Now account. It says “username and password are correct, but no active hbo now subscription found.” Contacted the playon cloud support people about this twice, but haven’t heard anything back... Other than this issue, the playon cloud app works great.
Def recommend! Exactly what I was looking for 👏
by gjparks on 2019/11/12 16:14
Definitely a must have app that does exactly what it says & worth it. I searched the longest time everywhere, finally I found this & I've never been happier. There's Play On Cloud, Play On desktop, Play On for iPhone & Android. Save movies you own & anything rented within time limit, song's, videos, etc. This app does exactly what it says & no hassles at all 👏 Fantastic App. I got the lifetime desktop version on sale for $19.99 & can record whatever I have a subscription to, like Amazon, Netflix, Showtime etc. Check out the developer website. I'm so happy I found this. Have a good one. Thank you developers of this app. You Rock 👋😎
Truly great all in one solution for off line viewing
by mediastor on 2019/11/04 13:04

5 Star Support From Skip 👍
by Airborne82ndSF on 2019/10/21 13:41
In the beginning I had a lot of issues with this app. I contacted support and received a response from a support tech named Skip. The man was terrific he resolved ALL my issues compensated me for down time via credits. With support like this you can’t run into a problem that can’t be resolved. Highly Recommend!!!!!!
Great App - Needs More Channels
by HisLittleOne on 2019/10/18 18:30
I really enjoy this app but hope they add more channels — like Hallmark Movie channels, UP Faith & Family, Pure Flix etc.

Works But Needs Functional Improvements, Expensive
by PhillipDampier on 2019/09/10 12:46
This app is designed to work as a portable DVR for streaming services. It uses PlayOn’s computers to capture recordings from a selection of services you already subscribe to and store them in the cloud or on your device for on the go viewing. This can also be a solution to capture shows expiring from your favorite streaming platform to view later. It works by capturing streams in real time, so it can take a long time to build a library. The service is easy enough to use but limited to a handful of cable on-demand services (Comcast and Spectrum), major streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, CBS, and other network owned platforms, and many smaller streaming services can also be recorded through the Amazon Prime Video platform, if you subscribe to them directly through Amazon. Recordings default at SD video, which in my view is suitable only for viewing on a phone. PlayOn recordings are not as clear and crisp as directly viewing on a streaming platform, so you should always remember to reset the recording setting to HD if watching on a tablet or TV. Note: 1080p and 4K recordings are not supported — a MAJOR flaw. Subtitles are supported only if you enable them on the streaming service. You cannot switch them on or off through the PlayOn app. They are either always on or always off. Sorting your library through the app Is also cumbersome and should be improved. It is a shame you can only record one show at a time. Cloud based services by their nature should eliminate these kinds of arbitrary limits. The service is also expensive, and their advertising is misleading because the per show cost they promote assumes you spend upwards of $30 or more per month to get that price. There is no flat rate plan and as a result, I am very judicious about what I record, which defeats the versatility of apps like this. You also have to deal with cloud storage capacity limits, meaning you will need to download and store a significant video library on your own computer or face paying even more. Your cable company probably sells you a more capable DVR service for under $20 a month, although portability is an issue. These costs need to come down if PlayOn wants people to use its app without a second thought. In all it is a useful app and easy to use. Just be prepared to be selective about what you record or be willing to shell out regularly to buy recording credits.
great app
by Raarrm on 2019/09/02 02:59

I have used this program for sometime now and use it all the time.
It’s awesome to build a library of personalized content
by lostcypher on 2019/09/01 18:49
For years I’ve been a subscriber to all the major players and have watched great content come and go... well... no more! With the PlayOn cloud app I’m able to build personalized libraries for myself and my family on our home network... not a huge fan of the price per recording, hopefully they are able to come up with a lifetime fee of some sort, but other than that, it’s been a go to app since I downloaded it.
Wonderful App
by Dan D Shorts on 2019/09/01 04:18
This may be my most used app. Super convenient to be able to watch my favorite stuff anytime on any of my devices. It’s a monthly fee, but reasonable for that convenience. Love it.
Worst ever
by Jason_Gunner on 2019/08/28 22:30
This app says free trial and then once you fill it out you pay $9.99 immediately and it slows down your whole phone do not download this app not worth it.
Great ap!!!

Very happy!
Hulu offline
by Spamela27 on 2019/08/20 23:34
Hulu does not offer offline viewing. This is a great alternative! I was able to easily record and download shows. Keep in mind you have to record each show first before you can download. The recording takes as long as the show is, so make sure you record well before you leave your WiFi/home. Once it records it takes another good while to download. I record and download the day before I want to watch the show.
Can’t connect using app
by Brohmer on 2019/08/15 01:50
Always says can’t connect to servers when I try to connect. Used to love this app. Not anymore
Stellar customer support
by Mcdmp57 on 2019/08/15 00:26
I had a problem finding a channel and a billing problem. I contacted support and both issues were resolved quickly and very much to my satisfaction. Fantastic app!
Sound quality is terrible
by thisisajoke name on 2019/08/11 14:37
Cancelled after my trial, show was unwatchable. Gave 2 stars only because picture quality was good. Recording takes the literal length of the show/movie you’re recording
Great product.

Won’t Login Any Longer
by Florida Outdoorsman on 2019/07/27 13:36
Worked great the first day. Next day I could no longer access the app, kept giving me messages that there is a problem with internet connection but everything else in house is working great with internet. Spent too much time researching with no answers on how to fix.
So good and so easy to use!
by rreading on 2019/07/22 13:06

Great but doesn’t record

I started the free trail and paid the money but unfortunately wasn’t recording so can you fix that for me please
Just what I neeed
by dusappionted on 2019/07/21 01:57
This is the perfect (and long overdue) tool for saving and watching downloaded netflix, HBO, or Amazon content in foreign countries where the same material is normally blocked. I love this app!
Quality
by Fxhgd on 2019/07/19 13:59
I’m really pleased with the video quality of the downloads. Good job!
Really nice
by Rexbard on 2019/07/17 12:13
Excellent app and only getting better! Sure, I wish it had a few more channels, but it easily covers the major streams and does everything I want. Well worth getting!
Crashes everytime
by JoshuaRML on 2019/07/15 04:13
It was a very nice app and service before. Current version crashes every time I launch this app. It is totally unusable. I hope all the bugs are fixed soon.
Great service
by mbr710 on 2019/07/12 16:51
I love being able to record and playback movies & shows on my tablet. Great price
Good customer service.

Good customer service. Address issues in a timely manner. But lately have had a big problem accessing downloads. Login Error prompt, then Cannot Connect to Server. Occasionally, I can bypass this.
So good - please add YouTube!

Two charges??
by Eveleah on 2019/07/04 23:08

Everything is great.... but not really
by DinoNuggetPhantoms on 2019/06/28 16:47
Ok, I was so hyped because im going on a 16 hour flight. I wanted to watch Naruto Shippuden and it had Naruto Shippuden. I was going to record, them it says I need some stupid thing called recording credits. Please take that recording credits of the app because I don’t have power over my money (I’m 11) and my parents certainly won’t get me recording credits. So please help because my flights is in less than a month.
Suoer happy with App.
by Bdydbdb on 2019/06/27 16:41
Surprised how simple to use. Would recommend.
It used to be great...
by TARDIS Take Me With You on 2019/06/24 11:23
This is my go-to app to watch my shows. I don’t mind paying for episodes because they skip the commercials for me, which is awesome! But recently every time I’ve tried to open the app it says, “Login error.” I updated the app, and it was working, but last night I was trying to download an episode. It wouldn’t download, and then when I closed and reopened the app it was back to saying, “Login error.” It’s still not working. I’m not sure if anyone else is having this issue but I’ve never had a problem with this app before so this is frustrating.
A+

Yes! GOT finale. Out in the boonies.
by Drill Rigger on 2019/05/23 04:35
I can finally DVR with my HBO Now account while working out in the boonies with shotty cell service & lousy wifi spots. Was gonna wait until the end of the work hitch but of course, I ran into so many major spoilers I may as well watch it after a shift! Looks like it worked great. Got the said finale & the latest 2 #The100 episodes. Great app!
Do not download!!
by sharkeyyyyyy on 2019/05/17 22:28
Scam!!! Yes the app works but it’s impossible to cancel the subscription. I’ve reached out to support 3 times. There’s no option to cancel on the app or their website. I called my bank to mark their charges as fraud since they were ill not cancel my subscription. What a horrible company to scam people. Seriously do not download. All the 5 star reviews are fake, I wish I would have read more 0 star reviews before I purchased this.
Can’t connect to server
by Tammarroo on 2019/05/12 21:52
Was excited to try this (lots of travel coming up) but the app just keeps spinning and telling me it can’t connect to the server. WiFi connected just fine. Uninstalled and reinstalled app ... can’t get anywhere with it. Bummer.
Simple to use

I was looking for a way to download shows from for my flight to Hawaii since they don’t have WiFi on the plane. This was a life saver!
Cannot use log-in credentials.
by cp117183 on 2019/05/07 19:54
I have access to HBOGO through my university, and it normally requires an external login at my school’s login screen when I try to access it on the HBOGO website. This app does not allow me to do that; even on the desktop app. If this problem is resolved, it would be a great app
No resumable downloads?!
by insomniac77 on 2019/05/06 05:42
Nearly finished my download during a layover, but the airport wifi got spotty and I flipped to cellular. I turned on the 'allow cellular downloads' option, but the download started over. So disappointed.
Awesome
by slvrcobra03 on 2019/05/04 04:38
This app is awesome to record old shows and new ones. Very good video quality.
PlayOn Cloud works well with a good connection.
by Steve7Rom on 2019/04/30 08:28
Just do the predownload and download when you have a good wifi or hotspot connection. Data roaming is too slow.
Great app, would like a few enhancements
by EM in Norfolk on 2018/03/02 21:30
Great app providing a useful service at a low cost with easy functionality. Would love two basic enhancements if anyone out there is listening. First, start recordings where they left off when watching something in more than one sitting. This happens if I have to close the app for a few minutes but if it’s a longer amount of time (say, start in morning then resume in evening) the app defaults to start the recording from the beginning. Second, sorting of recordings should be A to Z, not Z to A. For example, if I download 5 episodes of a show the 5th episode is first by default. They allow you to switch the order but you have to do it every time you go to your recordings which is kind of annoying. Great app overall that I’ve recommended to quite a few folks since using it myself.
Still Excellent After Many Years!
by AppFan3 on 2020/09/01 12:48
I’ve used the PlayOn cloud app for many years, and it has always been a great app. The ability to preserve movie and tv favorites is wonderful, and channels such as the new HBO and Peacock are added as they become available. I have had only two technical issues in my years using the app. Each time I emailed support and they were friendly, responsive and very helpful. I suspect that if anyone is not receiving a response, the email must not be reaching app support. I highly recommend this app and look forward to its continued development.
So far so good!
by OctoberC on 2018/04/02 18:12
Just downloaded... they offer a deal when you sign up for cloud storage, which is fine & good & all, ppl godda make money... but it seems that you get 7 days of storage for free & they offer packages if you want to build a library I suppose... So, just here to say it looks like you can still get functionality for free as long as it’s used sparingly... good to know because I didn’t want to be pressured first & don’t think I’ll be using it very much but this week I’m taking a flight & want offline viewing...

Used to work but recently it won’t stay open for more than 10 seconds before it just force closes itself. No matter what I do, rebooting, trying to delete stuff before it crashes, it keeps crashing. Using an iPad mini 4 updated to the latest iOS version and also PlayOn cloud latest version. Can’t even submit a support request via the app because it crashes before I can hit submit to send the report. Also, the skip ads feature doesn’t work on most networks, such as cbs and fox, it ends up just skipping parts of the show at random, so it’s useless. Overall it’s a really buggy app, if there was any alternative I would choose it. And this is on an Apple device, why should it be buggy?
It’s awesome to build a library of personalized content
by lostcypher on 2019/09/01 18:49
For years I’ve been a subscriber to all the major players and have watched great content come and go... well... no more! With the PlayOn cloud app I’m able to build personalized libraries for myself and my family on our home network... not a huge fan of the price per recording, hopefully they are able to come up with a lifetime fee of some sort, but other than that, it’s been a go to app since I downloaded it.
Amazingly actually works like it says
by Tonytone2222 on 2019/12/10 02:12
Great interface and easy to use access to download pretty much anything. As long as you have an actual account that you already pay for. I use offline downloads a lot so it works great for me. Being able to download anything on HBO to watch without worrying about my cell signal and data is a godsend. Only other downside is the downloads are really slow. Still, I have no regrets
Slow to get back to customers
by marioone1 on 2019/01/28 12:56
I love this service WHEN it works but i admit i put in my cc wrong three times to get cloud service and i was cut off so i contacted tech service two days ago meanwhile I’m on vacation and have no access to my movies i paid for and paid to download and was paying to try to store in iCloud I have had this for close to a year and no problems but when you log in or put wrong info in three times your cut off and no access to movies you paid for until customer service gets back to you and so far i have been waiting two days while on vacation Which they say 48 hrs but when your on vacation and have no access to your movies that’s eternity
Pretty dope app
by Totally Not A Computer on 2019/03/01 20:08
I do some edits on instagram and usually i spend like 3 hrs jst trying to find footage from random shows. With this tho its legit all right there easy to download and everything. Only problem is u hv to hv an account on the channel u wanna download from and u hv to pay for a subscription. Tbh tho its worth it bc the quality of the videos r great and the upload pretty quickly. And its way easier than going to shady sites and getting viruses or whtever
Refund
by WinterStorm35 on 2020/02/20 15:09
I don’t like the app since it make’s it hard for people to cancel there subscription to it and I only tried it for a few days last year then got rid of the app and now I am being charged for an app that I don’t have anymore and now I want my refund for it for the months that it took money out of my Mom’s bank account and put back in it.....so please give me back my Mom’s money ! That is the reason y I am not giving this app any stars since it is a very POOR POOR POOR service to work with since I did tried to cancel and it won’t let me do it and I tried to do it again today and since it expires today and it still won’t let me🔥😠😡🤬!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing app, great service
by Cuse231 on 2020/07/02 20:50
This app is wonderful...offering almost every video streaming platform you could want (almost!), and allows you to record and take videos with you on the go. You record in the cloud and download to your device. It’s useful to build your own library and watch on myriad devices (iPad, phone, TV, PC/laptop). Recording quality is excellent and file size is very reasonable. Their customer service is excellent too. Anytime I’ve had a technical issue (and they do occasionally happen), they respond quickly, efficiently, and very personably. They occasionally have $0.10/recording specials but even at $0.15, that’s an excellent deal. I highly recommend this app to my friends with children (and even those without)!
Buggy
by Azure Guy on 2018/05/16 12:21
I’ve subscribed to PlayOn Cloud for about two years. A great idea but these are the issues I have had: 1) in the absence of a WiFi signal (eg on an airplane) the app crashes and does not open; 2) I am unable to transfer my recordings on my iPad through iTunes to my iMac. It only transfers perhaps a dozen of my 60 or so recordings. I have worked with customer support repeatedly with no resolution; 3) customer support, when there is (I haven’t heard back for three weeks despite repeated tech support tickets created), has always taken anywhere from two to four days to respond. I wonder if they are financially struggling. Too. Ad since it is a great idea.
Great little App
by the NJ Dude on 2019/03/14 22:27
I really like the ease of this app. It works great for recordings for a plane ride. You need to consider the following: - you need to have a subscription. For example I use it for HBO which I am a member but which does not allow you to download - you need to download to your cloud before you need it and it takes the original show time to tape a show. So for example a one hour HBO episode of GOT will take one hour to record . So just do it over night for 5 shows. - then you need to download it on your device Sounds like a lot but it is not - and it is worth it to get your shows on a plane and not need the WiFi. Overall pleased - watched 5 GOT episodes on my long plane ride to get ready for the new season.
It used to be great...
by TARDIS Take Me With You on 2019/06/24 11:23
This is my go-to app to watch my shows. I don’t mind paying for episodes because they skip the commercials for me, which is awesome! But recently every time I’ve tried to open the app it says, “Login error.” I updated the app, and it was working, but last night I was trying to download an episode. It wouldn’t download, and then when I closed and reopened the app it was back to saying, “Login error.” It’s still not working. I’m not sure if anyone else is having this issue but I’ve never had a problem with this app before so this is frustrating.
Pretty good technically, but they make it hard to browse
by Benconsult on 2017/11/08 23:36
It’s ok - and makes a pretty good recording, but they should make it easier to watch by adding a channel in my *already purchased* playon application for the pc. Also, why is it so hard to browse titles of programs? I have to go to genre/then to “page number” selection/ then to first letter of program. Sheesh that’s terrible! Now you can say that’s Amazon’s fault because of how it’s arranged on their servers, but playon cloud could do a lot toward ease-of-use by aggregating some of those titles for me so I don’t have to page so much and so awkwardly to see the title names.
Really good customer services
by Beatka Ka on 2018/02/13 21:35
Whenever I have a problem, for example, I duplicated my account (don’t ask how....:)), they respond and find a solution. Same when I could not login to some channels. If you want to build your library to watch things later I highly recommend this app. I wish it would be available for Mac laptop software.
Core functionality is great, but usability issues remain
by Sabor de Soledad on 2019/04/16 14:49
Overall, PlayOn does what is promised once you get your accounts connected. However, it has not yet been updated to support IPad Pro 11 resolution, wasting almost a third of the screen on black bars. Other reviewers also mentioned the issues with resuming a recording where you left off. That works for me sometimes, other times I have to remember where I was and fast forward. Would be a five star review from me once these are resolved.
Poor, clueless support, poor app, poor quality video
by twhiting9275 on 2018/08/16 23:46
Support takes FOREVER to get an initial response ( 3-4 days ), then simply just regurgitates canned responses that are irrelevant to the actual problem at hand. Weeks later? Incomprehensible responses blaming a users config , or local environment for their own software issues. Application is incredibly poorly designed, not allowing users to delete queued recordings, not allowing user to easily modify order of queued recordings ( drag and drop doesn’t work if you have 100+ queued recordings ) Recordings always embed users name, email and IP in some faux attempt to circumvent piracy ( LOL ). Recordings ALWAYS buffer for about 20 seconds, and when they start, EVERY TIME, have about 30-90 seconds of incredibly poor quality image ( like it’s buffering, image is jagged ). Recordings cost a good deal, both in space and actual $$$. Good luck getting ANYWHERE with this support team, or application. It’s garbage from the ground up.
Terrible app, terrible support !
by Lisa2118 on 2018/10/30 05:43
I tried to use this app before a plane trip. Downloaded shows took hours to show up. I couldn’t get what did load to play and when I tried to get support they don’t get back to you. My plane trip was over before a third of my downloads showed up. I never did hear from support and it’s two days later. I had to buy more credits even with the “free trial “ to get a very small amount downloaded. This app is a rip-off and I will just purchase on board WiFi in the future. Thanks for not getting back to me. Save your time and money and use a different method.
5 Star Support From Skip 👍
by Airborne82ndSF on 2019/10/21 13:41
In the beginning I had a lot of issues with this app. I contacted support and received a response from a support tech named Skip. The man was terrific he resolved ALL my issues compensated me for down time via credits. With support like this you can’t run into a problem that can’t be resolved. Highly Recommend!!!!!!
Good Idea, Terrible App
by katieeeee xx on 2019/02/17 22:15
I love this app.... when it works. I’ve been using Playon Cloud for a few months now, and I have to write to support at least once every other week. The app never allows you to log in, forgets your plan, or deletes the queue. Support takes forever to get back to you. It’s basically useless unless you happen to get it on a good day when by some miracle, you’re logged in and can actually record things. Honestly, if I didn’t have so many recordings, I’d stop paying. I still might stop paying. The app needs to be fixed and support needs to get better. Period.
Unreal
by Bdhu2001 on 2019/03/18 22:46
PlayOn cloud allows you to take your videos with you even if you have an apple device. In addition, you don’t have to constantly check to see if video download has expired or if the video is still available. Truly helpful when planning a trip out of state or out of the country.
Love it
by lostcause627 on 2018/08/02 22:33
But I’d really like to put recordings in groups/folders and be able to choose a default sort each group alphabetically or chronologically A/D. The groups could be created in the Cloud and then represented on the Device if at least one member of the group has been downloaded. Also would be nice to be able to select the channels that appear on the home menu in channel settings.
Stopped loading on iPad/iPhone
by bss189 on 2018/07/12 16:46
Was using this fine. All of a sudden for over a week the app does not log in on my iOS devices - iPad (latest version), iPhone 7 + - wrote to tech support, no reply yet. Sometimes will eventually fail and say failed to log in. Option to try again - same long wait and nothing - or login, which I try and it fails. Tried resetting password. Able to enter credentials. Then same long wait and nothing. Epic fail. Won’t be using again. My credits are useless. I would use play on desktop but does not work on Mac!
Great app!
by Keri Lynn Jo on 2018/09/06 13:20
So far so good. I am recording/ downloading 2 seasons worth of shows onto my iPad for a trip to Europe. The app is easy to use and i have no complaints so far. I turned the iPad into airplane mode to test watch a few minutes of a few episodes and it seems to be working well. Really excited about this!
Great Show Saver
by Stop dumping me on 2019/01/02 22:18
This comes in very handy during those times when house internet is slow or down. I use it to record shows that are about to expire and am unable to do so on my lousy DSL (only thing available where we live) that is constantly going down.
Great App
by captain1charlie on 2018/05/01 11:21
Ability to Download and save on your device when you go where you don’t have Service then Watch on your own time. Streaming apps you have to connect to your account every few days to watch your downloaded Videos. Don’t mind the average cost about .25 a episode
Perfect!
by jenim5412 on 2019/04/10 17:37
Just what I wanted. A way to download HBO go, etc even though HBO go doesn’t enable it. This is BETTER than expected. Not only can I now do that, but I can download Netflix and others that aren’t slated for download! As a rural dweller with only limited WiFi available, this is a total game changer that will FINALLY enable me to cut the cable noose!
Love this APP!
by 505Cmg on 2020/08/05 00:32
Great APP - when are you getting peacock channel???? Hate commercials and cut the cord? This is for u! Very reasonably priced too! I wish recording did not take so long however based on price point - I’ll survive! Channel updates are needed too - so easy whether you download app on ROKU or cast to TV - so happy I found this gem
It's 2019 and you don't have play resume?
by already freaking taken on 2019/01/18 17:00
Watching a show or movie and you get a phone call or text you have to start it all over and find your place again. It's incredibly annoying. Wish there was another alternative.
Amazing!
by SuperRockinDoc on 2017/10/13 17:13
The program will download almost anything. It does take more time than a high speed digital download because it plays the video in real time and records it as it plays the video. This just means that a one hour video will take one hour to download.
An Excellent Alternative to Constant Commercials
by Gralarry2 on 2019/04/24 14:33
To use it is to love it. The only thing I wish you could add would be that one could know and keep track of the shows that you have already watched. Then I would give this app six stars if I could.
As long as you don’t need support
by seer14 on 2018/01/27 21:41
This works as long as you don’t need support. If you need support, they ask you for your credentials. I have an issue with the showtime anytime channel, and as I’m an AT&T U-verse customer, I would have to given them my credentials to my entire AT&T account. <no thank you> after several rounds of e-mail support it was stated again, that they can’t reproduce the issue and would just have to wait until another customer has the issue and is willing to share credentials.
Great app for my purposes
by Lkinak on 2019/11/24 21:48
I travel a lot and enjoy the ability to download media when convenient to watch when convenient. I subscribe to several streaming services and PlayOn Cloud supports most. PlayOn seems to get more robust and improvement seems a priority.
Did not get the special offer
by JohnBoy5562 on 2018/01/07 00:56
I downloaded this app and it said not sure but like 15 credits for 1.99 but I had in app purchases off so I didn’t get them. But I would turn on in app purchases on before you start the app. It does what it said it would do. Love this app
Easy Peasy
by barley2 on 2019/03/09 16:15
I can finally watch my shows on an airplane. Easy to automatically save shows and movies to your iPhone. I load up on kid-friendly content before flying and just hand the kids my phone. Works for long car rides too.
Irreplaceable
by Fpaypal on 2018/05/12 17:35
I live on sketchy internet that buffers too much. I can download what I am going to watch ahead if time and know that my evening will not be ruined by buffering or down internet. I can also download at friend’s fast internet and take it home on my device.
Great app
by sam samak on 2020/03/05 06:30
Easy to use High quality recording I use it for recording scenes from movies for educational training and learning more about the American accent and aspects of English conversations, it really helped lot. Thanks 😊 for all the people who worked on this app , you are the best 🤗🌹
Cool if you need it
by Ajbuda on 2017/08/28 02:06
We have no wifi for the time being and no hotspot ability, so being able to record and download my game of thrones from HBO now and then use apowersoft to move the file to my computer for watching had been key
Everything is great.... but not really
by DinoNuggetPhantoms on 2019/06/28 16:47
Ok, I was so hyped because im going on a 16 hour flight. I wanted to watch Naruto Shippuden and it had Naruto Shippuden. I was going to record, them it says I need some stupid thing called recording credits. Please take that recording credits of the app because I don’t have power over my money (I’m 11) and my parents certainly won’t get me recording credits. So please help because my flights is in less than a month.
Awesome app
by kshowell on 2018/06/23 16:31
I love this app. It is great for downloading movies. You don’t want to miss this one. The only thing is I wish they would add more channels. And speed up the downloads a little faster. Other than that, for recording movies and downloaded this is the best on the market
Great for commuting and slow internet!
by krlargent on 2020/05/18 23:46
When I go home to visit my parents, they have such slow internet (and no cell service!) that I can’t stream anything. I love using PlayOn Cloud to be able to keep up with my shows!
Excellent app for saving your sanity
by RJenson on 2020/04/05 13:19
In this time of binge watching. This app lets you find your things to watch and get them onto a device that your less abled folks can ‘drive’. Real game changer for those with limited motor functions.
GENIUS
by Andy Arant on 2017/12/02 02:10
Traveling next week and was wanting to watch some Game of Thrones on my plane ride. $2 for 6 episodes, and they downloaded in an hour onto my iPad. Great for HBO subscribers and other networks that don’t allow users to download for offline watch from the app.
Garbage
by Rip off one on 2018/11/28 15:38
I believe the majority of these reviews are fake. My experience with totally different then the five star rating. Couldn't login the email they are supposed to send you to reset your password even though your password is correct when you enter it. That email is never send I disputed the charges with my credit card company. The reviews out here our untrue I suspected. The developer and or people there working for him or the company I read in the reviews I suspected.
Play on cloud
by Cel32da on 2017/11/15 07:29
I luv this app I get to watch my favorite shows even on the airplane with no WiFi and no cell service I mean you have to download the show before you get on the plane and yes you have to buy credits but it’s so reasonable and worth every penny😊
Overcoming HughesNet Limitations
by FarmerCW on 2020/04/22 15:25
This is what I needed to download stream only video and cast it to my TV. It allows me to schedule the download for overnight using “bonus” bandwidth. The only problem I’ve found is that close caption timing is so far off as to be useless.
Perfect app for holiday travel!
by QAMom1 on 2018/12/13 20:52
I recorded a bunch of shows for my kids to watch on the 8hr car ride over Thanksgiving and they loved it, didn’t fight and even watched together. This app single handedly made holiday driving a pleasure vs a chore. Parenting win! I even snuck in some cool documentaries they loved!
Fits the bill for me
by ET from LA on 2020/04/18 01:11
We live in a rural area without wired internet service. PlayLater and PlayOn Cloud have been extremely valuable to us stretching out our data plans. They work extremely well for our needs.
Great App...
by wd on 2019/02/12 14:24
If you are bandwidth limited(in my case Satellite Internet) but have access to high speed elsewhere(my business). I can record, download to device, play at home. Works great for me. Now if they could only get casting working...
