Watch DirectTV Now on Roku with PlayOn
Use PlayOn to Record DirecTV Now and Watch on Roku
While DirecTV Now has not yet made their appearance on one the most popular media streamers, PlayOn quietly introduced a new DirecTV Now channel that will let Roku owners play it on their Roku players.
This new PlayOn channel allows you to record any DirecTV on-demand or live stream and supports AdSkip when watching those recordings.
The PlayOn software is installed on a PC like Plex and lets user record their shows to the PC and then watched on Roku using their Roku software.
Use PlayOn Without a PC
PlayOn also recently rolled out their cloud based software that works with Apple iDevices. An Android app is coming soon as well. This lets you record content and save it to their cloud and watch it from any of your devices.
How it Works -
"PlayOn Cloud is a streaming video recorder (SVR) located in the cloud. When you select a video in the PlayOn Cloud app on your iPad or iPhone, we start a stream on a virtual PC in the cloud and record that stream like a DVR records cable TV. Once that recording is complete, an .mp4 file will be ready for you to enjoy. You can download that the .mp4 video file from the PlayOn Cloud app on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch."
When your recordings are done, PlayOn will also email you a link so you can download and watch them on any other device.
