Starting Wednesday, the people at MediaMall Technologies are offering its new PlayOn software free for 14 days on a public beta download which allows you to stream Internet content from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, ESPN, CBS and Amazon VOD straight to your Wii via a PC.

The Wii version (its actually already available on the PS3 & XBOX 360) will also have support for a few other unnamed online video services, but remember you won't be able to stream directly to the Wii. 

You first need an Internet-connected Windows XP or Vista computer as the source.
