    "False advertisement"

    July 17, 2012  |   By Jon_Smith99


    None come to mind


    I purchased the "2012 Holiday Package" which equates to a Roku and a lifetime subscription for $79.99
    After a month of emails with Playon I received no Roku, an apology on the Playon homepage for falsely advertising the "2012 Holiday Package", incredible amount of frustration, and another charge of $79.99 to my account.
    In month 2of dealing with the Playon team, I received no responses to my emails from the Playon team about the Roku or the double charge... Actually i did receive 1 response, which I quote "instructions have been sent to your email. If you have not received these instruction. Check your spam folder". Instructions to what, i dont know. I never heard from any more reps from Playon
    So I had to go to my bank and change my card and dispute the charge.
    Now after 6 months of using Playon, I can tell you the service works occasionally w/o sound. The Playon interface doesn't work fully with Hulu (user queue functionallity is extremely limited). And constantly disconnected.


    Save your money, save your time. Pass on Playon
    It's not worth it.
