Wii to get PlayOn app

Nintendo's Wii will get the ability to play movies on users' Windows PCs thanks to Media Mall's PlayOn app on Wednesday, August 26th. PlayOn has already allowed PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users to access Netflix Watch, Amazon VOD and Hulu content. The Wii version will also have support for a few other unnamed online video services, though does require an Internet-connected Windows XP or Vista computer as the source.

The launch will have a beta version of the PlayOn app for the Wii, though users will be able to download a free 14-day trial of the software to evaluate its performance. The full version of the software costs $40. [via Gadgetwise]
