PlayOn Video Streaming Service Now Playing on the Wii

August 26, 2009

Been looking for a reason to dust off your Nintendo Wii as of late? PlayOn's new video streaming software, still in its beta development stage, might just do the trick.

Today, MediaMall Technologies officially released a beta version of its media streaming software for the Wii, having already proven its worth on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and other media players. The gist of it is that you install this software on your PC and the Wii, and through the PlayOn interface on the Wii, you're able to watch stuff like Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, and other Internet-type media, right on your television.

The good news is there's a 14-day free trial of the software. The not-so-good news is that after your two weeks are up, it's gonna cost you about $40 for the software license. And that price is actually a little bit of a head-scratcher - if you also happen to own a 360 or a PS3, there are a host of free alternatives also available to you. But if you're jonesin' for some media streaming on Nintendo's little white box, this might just be your best bet for now.
