We heard a while back that Plex is getting into streaming. In September, it announced that it had teamed up with Warner Bros. to deliver ad-supported content by the end of 2019, with the promise of more partnerships down the road. And as from today, thousands of “free movies, TV shows, extreme sports films, music documentaries, Bollywood musicals” have been unlocked inside the Plex app.
The ad-supported video-on-demand service is available in over 200 countries to anyone with a free Plex account. There’s no paid subscriptions. You get content from major 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 movies to be added in the 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 position it next to your existing collections. Plex has apps on all major smart TVs and streaming boxes, so you can add it to your console, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV boxes, plus your iOS and Android devices. Nice.
