PlayOn is an app that installs to your computer. Your Wii will need the internet channel installed to it to access the PlayOn app on your computer. I haven't tried this yet, but looks functionable. You can download a free 14 day trial, but to get the most out of it, I would first get the internet channel installed and working on your Wii, that way you don't lose any of your free trial trying to get the internet channel working. This is also available for 360 and PS3.

Is your gaming console hooked up to your stereo? Well now you can stream Pandora through your Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii. Best of all this feature will continue to work even after your trial expires. Set up all your stations on your PC and then listen in the comfort of your living room.
Have some movies you've downloaded and would like to watch on your TV? Songs you want to listen to on your better stereo? Photos you'd like to share with your family and friends on your TV screen instead of your laptop? With PlayOn you can stream your own music, movies, and photos to your gaming console. Best of all, this feature is free, even after your trial expires, so enjoy it!
