SageTV Extender Connects to Playon

This is a pretty big find, SageTV just confirmed that the HD Theater connector will connect to a playon server. This is not terribly surprising because in stand alone mode, the extender supports connecting to a UPnP server. No need for a PS3 or 360 to get connected :).

What is playon?

PlayOn enables consumers who own a PLAYSTATION 3, Xbox 360, or HP MediaSmart TV to access content from sites including Netflix, Hulu, CBS, YouTube, ESPN
and more on their television. We have been testing PlayOn Beta for a
number of months now, and the fully featured release will be coming

We will also be adding support for Nintendo Wii in early 2009. Stay tuned!

PlayOn is software you install on your Windows PC. The download is a
fully functional trial and is free to use for 14 days, but once it
expires, you’ll have to purchase a license to continue using it. Sign
up here to try it out.

A license will cost you $30.

This adds a huge chunk of functionality to the HD Theater Extender for only thirty dollars!
