PlayOn Officially Rolls Onto Android, Brings Netflix And Hulu With It

Given what Netflix has said so far, we know that Netflix for Android is coming… eventually. Even then, Netflix is still being a bit mysterious about which devices it’ll work on (though given their recent Qualcomm partnership, “things running a Snapdragon CPU” is a good guess.)

In the meantime, there’s a work around of sorts: PlayOn. After months of beta testing, PlayOn for Android is now available.

The catch: while the app is free, the service is not ($39.99 for the first year/$19.99 each year thereafter, or $79.99 for life). With that said, it’s the only means I know of right now for beamin’ the Netflix (or Hulu, TBS, CBS, Amazon VOD, MTV, SyFy, and.. uhh.. the Oprah Winfrey Network, if you’re feelin’ crazy) daterbits from any networked PC to any Android 2.2+ device over 3G or WiFi. Plus, it’ll do the same for your PS3, 360, Wii, or iOS devices.

You can find the now Beta-tag-less app in the Android Market right here.
