PlayOn Unlocks Over 45 TV Channels for Wii U

SEATTLE --(Business Wire)--

PlayOn, the media server software from MediaMall Technologies that magically streams your favorite online videos to your TV and mobile devices, today added support for Nintendo's new Wii U. PlayOn offers Wii U users, who can get a free year of PlayOn from now through Christmas Eve*, access to all Hulu (News - Alert) content without paying for Hulu Plus, as well as over 45 other channels that are otherwise inaccessible on the Wii U including HBO GO, CNN, Comedy Central, ESPN (News - Alert) and ESPN 3, Nick, PBS, TLC and Discovery. Using PlayOn and the Wii U, users can also stream home videos and PlayLater recordings from their PCs to view on their TVs. Without PlayOn, the Wii U cannot play these online channels or home videos, even if accessed through the Wii U browser.

"The beauty of the Wii U is the tablet-like gamepad that bcomes a second screen for watching video or browsing content and options. So now, instead of waggling a Wii remote, you can use the touchscreen controls to browse PlayOn channels and select from the long list of online content we're delivering to Wii U users," said MediaMall Technologies CEO Jeff Lawrence.

Interested Wii U users can find information on how to install PlayOn for the Wii U at, as well as how to redeem a free year of PlayOn service available today through midnight, December 24, 2012*. This offer can only be redeemed through the Wii U browser, and the year of service is free with no credit card required.

*Or while supplies last.
