PlayOn for Google TV allows blocked channels Hulu, NBC & CBS for free!
May 9, 2013 8:00 AM –
Google TV users, myself included, should be happy you can now play blocked internet channels like Hulu, Hulu Plus, ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox using PlayOn’s PC media server and mobile app. PlayOn is a free trial with subscription service but will be free for Google TV users for a limited time.
If you care to know the history here, back when Google launched its set top and embedded Internet TV device it failed to seal content deals with major television broadcast networks and eventually all of them blocked the specific device from playing their online content. Myself and many outraged others found this ludicrous as you can view the same content via any computer or any Android smartphone so I shared a popular tip on how to get around this but CBS ended up forcing YouTube to block the How-To vid. PlayOn says you can use their one-two app combo to watch these channels on Google TV without a workaround.
If you have a Google TV and want to try it out free then click the Install button above from your GTV and be sure to install the media server on your computer!
