I discovered PlayOn not long after they began. I was one of those people who actually contributed cash towards development. I have a lifetime membership and have enjoyed PlayOn for most of that time. When they came out with the Cloud app, I was on board and regularly bought credits to the point that I still have over 400 anytime credits. But, over the last few years, PlayOn has become less and less satisfying. Just keeping the desktop functional is a challenge. As the numbers of channels has dwindled, the logins to some of the most often used channels (Amazon, HBO Go, et al) fail more and more often. I spend hours trying all the recommended exercises, then I give up and fall back to the Cloud downloads. After a few weeks or months, I find that I can once again download from Amazon on my desktop. So, keeping my foot in the door with the cloud app is my safeguard against problems on the desktop. But, now, I'm finding even the cloud is becoming a problem. I find nothing helpful online, and trying to get help through customer support is more frustration. I am forced to wonder what is happening with PlayOn. At this point, I cannot even download the videos I've recorded from the cloud ... the links don't work. Nothing on my end have changed, with the possible exception of some Windows updates being slipped in automatically. Otherwise, I'm at an impasse. Am I watching my favorite app in its death throes? I hope not.
