We have heard rumors about Plex is getting into streaming. In September, it revealed that it had joined forces with Warner Bros. to deliver ad-supported content by the end of 2019, with the hope of more partnerships by the end of the year. And as from today, thousands of “free movies, TV shows, extreme sports movies, music documentaries, Bollywood musicals” have been opened inside the Plex app.
The ad-supported video-on-demand service is now accessible in over 200 countries to anyone with a free Plex account. There are no paid subscriptions. You get content from big studios including Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), Lionsgate, Legendary and Warner Bros. Movies like American Ultra, Frequency, Lord of War, Rain Man, Raging Bull, The Terminator, Thelma & Louise, and Apocalypse Now are all here, with more films to be added in the near future.
If you’re already a Plex user, there will be a new Free to Watch category under a Movies & TV on Plex sidebar item, allowing you to point it next to your current collections. Plex has apps on all main smart TVs and streaming boxes, so you can add it to your console, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV boxes, and also you can add to your iOS and Android devices. It is quite cool actually.
