PlayLater Allows Offline Media Streaming for iOS Devices

The ability to watch movies and television shows on the go is getting easier and easier. If you have an iPad, you can watch your favorite shows anywhere there is an Internet connection. But, what about when there isn’t an Internet connection and you don’t want to use 3G or 4G, or maybe you can’t because you are camping in a remote area.

Now, with PlayLater, you can “record” and store movies and TV shows on you iPad for offline viewing, anytime, anywhere.

PlayLater is a desktop software application that acts like a DVR, letting you record your favorite movies, TV shows, and even live sports as it is streaming on your computer’s browser. Then, using the free PlayLater Player app and your device’s File Sharing feature in iTunes, move the media files to your iOS device for offline viewing anytime.

“PlayLater seems to have truly broad appeal…and is a must-have for the gadget guy, frequent flier, or busy mom during the holiday season,” said Jeff Lawrence, MediaMall Technologies CEO. “Nothing beats on-the-go entertainment when you are on a long flight or trying to calm a crying pre-schooler. And, PlayLater is the only way to record all the online shows and movies you want and take them with you on your mobile devices.”

PlayLater lets you legally record shows from Hulu, Netflix, HBO Go, ABC, NBC, Comedy Central, the Food Network, Cartoon Network and more. Some channels, like HBO Go, Netflix and Hulu Plus require subscriptions.

The service is $24.99 per year, but you can try out PlayLater for 14 days for free. You can also save money right now by downloading a six-month trial for only $9.99. The best value, assuming that the company stays in business for at least 80 years, is the lifetime subscription. For $49.99, you get a lifetime subscription to the service.

Currently, PlayLater is only compatible with Windows-based operating system, so if you are using a Mac, you’ll have to split your driver using Boot Camp and install Windows in order to run PlayLater.
