PlayOn opens up PlayDirect API, says make your own channel


As more native apps for things like Hulu Plus on Xbox 360 and Netflix on Android appear you might think that would cause a problem for PlayOn, which has made its business in converting streams for the unsupported. Luckily, it's continued to add supported content and the latest move is opening up its PlayDirect API and letting others create channels for the app. Anyone should be able to create a channel now simply by plopping in the URL of the video they want to watch, and it plans to open up a Roku-style channel store soon for subscribers to review and add others channels. All the info you need to make one is on the developer guide, hit the source link to add that one site you've always been missing if you're a PlayOn subscriber.
