Plex has long been a favorite for users that like to manage their own content by streaming movies and TV they already own to their devices. With the addition of Live TV, Plex has made their platform more desirable to the average user and their newest offer is sure to entice even more users.
Today Plex announced that in light of the global coronavirus crisis they will be making its Live TV feature free to Plex Users for a whopping 3 Months.
Plex’s blog post below:
Quite a few of you have reached out to share how much Plex has helped over the past weeks and how it fits in to your shelter-in-place regimen, whether it’s keeping kids from tearing each other’s hair out, or keeping family and friends fed with a steady stream of media to pass the time. To be clear, we’re on the far fringes of being able to make a meaningful contribution to returning things to normal. While we’re not working on the cure*, we’re incredibly honored to know that we’re working on something that may make the mitigation a little more tolerable for all of you. It gives us a renewed sense of purpose. We won’t let you down.
If you have an HD antenna and tuner, then now you can stream your free live TV to all your devices without Plex Pass through the end of June (DVR and other premium features still require a Plex Pass). And if you don’t, we got some of our hardware partners to offer them to Plex users at a discount for a limited time. You can stream reruns, new shows (treasure them!), news, or kids programming. Stream it all around your home or while you’re away. Maybe it will help educate, entertain, enlighten, or another e-starting-word.
So how do you get started with Plex?
First sign up for a Plex account, link provided below.
If you don’t already have one, get Plex Media Server running on a compatible device running Windows, MacOS or Linux.
Lastly, pickup a Plex compatible tuner and HD antenna.
