Last year CyberLink added the option to subscribe to PowerDVD alongside their cloud service, and that continues to be available this year with PowerDVD 14. The $44.99 per year (or $14.99 per quarter) alongside the standard purchase options of Ultra ($99.95), Pro ($79.95) and Standard ($49.95). If you opt for the subscription or Ultra 10GB of CyberLink Cloud storage is included in the price alongside the Android/iOS/Windows 8 “Metro” Power Media Player. There are quite a few new features this year, including HEVC (H.265), WASAPI audio support, and automatic cloud-based file synchronization between clients. I’ve had the chance to play with a beta release of the product – click through for some impressions an the full PR.
