You need separate accounts for Hulu, Netflix, etc. The fee is just to use PlayOn, which sucks. They have big sales pretty regularly though, and if you wait (maybe until Black Friday/Cyber Monday) you could probably pick up a lifetime license for ~$30.

Of course, you could always run those Hulu/Netflix/etc. accounts like most people: http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6848173/the-secret-of-hbo-go

Lifetime PlayOn license is available for $40 today: LINK

This is a good deal IMO.

I have a playon license .. it is ok.. but it doesnt work very well at all.. After all, it is a middleware app that is relaying streaming data. Not ideal.

I have found an easy solution that works very well.

Buy an android pc for $30 - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008BFXOZE/..._M3T1_ST1_dp_1

and a wireless keyboard (or use another usb keyboard/mouse if you have one)
There is a nice one paired with the android pc on this page for $30.

Plug that bad boy into the hdmi of your tv, subscribe to gamerewind and VOILA! All the gamerewind goodness easily on the big screen. The wireless keyboard/touchpad make controlling things a breeze.

I literally plugged mine in, logged in, installed gamerewind android app from the market, and had it streaming in 5 minutes. AWESOME!

I thought some NFL Network shows were on Hulu, NFL games aren't.

I'm signing up for NFL Rewind when I drop my DirecTV on Sept 1. I don't mind watching the games a day late. I've been DVRing them for the past couple years anyway.

Rumor has it that the DirecTV Sunday Ticket exclusive deal is going away when the contract is up at the end of the 2014 season. That will allow the NFL to allow subscriptions for live streaming like MLB & NBA do.

If you are unable to get Direct TV the new Madden game comes with a code that allows you to stream the Sunday Ticket, but I think you have to be physically unable to get DTV. I also think that it may only be available through Amazon. I am not sure about this, but it might be worth looking into.

You have to have an infernal TimeWarner cable subscription (or similar) to do espn3....nearly made me see red.

If I had cable, why the eff would I need to stream games?
