Whlie Hulu and Netflix still don't have first-party apps in the Android Market, PlayOn
users will soon be able to tap into the popular video services on their Android smartphones. Once again, it's PlayOn which has a solution. PlayOn released an iOS version back in August 2010
and is now passing out invites to its customers (like this one sent to us by Chris H.
) to join an expanded Android beta test. There are a couple of prerequisites involved, of course. You need a a licensed copy of PlayOn and a device running Android 2.2 Froyo or better, and PlayOn also only works over Wi-Fi -- at least for now.
The invite also offers encouragement for those who don't make the beta cut: PlayOn for Android is "very close" to being released into the wild.
