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.
