Plex Music Goes to Eleven!

04.30.15 325 Comments

I have a confession to make. Picture Al Gore blasting air conditioning with his car windows rolled down, a cooler full of polar bear steaks in the trunk, and in the passenger seat, Tipper’s singing along to Ice Cube, with all the naughty words. It’s literally that bad. You see, for the past few years, I’ve been using iTunes for music and not Plex. Why, you might ask? Well, inertia for sure; I’ve been using iTunes for a decade. But…


Huge update for our Smart TV app

04.16.15 133 Comments

As you’ve no doubt noticed over the past few months, we’ve been greatly expanding our support for Plex across Smart TVs. If you have a Plex Pass and a fairly recent VIZIO or Sony television (or other Opera TV-based devices), odds are you can run our shiny, new Plex app on it. We’ve also recently launched on Toshiba (most 2013 and later models) and LG Smart TVs (2013 Netcast and 2014 WebOS models), and 2012 and newer Samsung fridges (OK, maybe not…


Major updates to our Android app!

03.27.15 107 Comments

It’s been a few months since we last visited with Android, and we’d like to let you know about a major new release we just made. That’s right, our app has turned the big 4.0 (or 4.0.1, counting a few bug-fixes)! Long out of nappies, it won’t be long before it’s doing bong hits out of a dorm room. We’re quite taken with Android’s Material design, so you’ll see lots of beautiful new design upgrades inside the mobile app, and a…


Brand New Plex App on the Platform of the People

02.24.15 208 Comments

As you all know, we’ve been working tirelessly to bring Plex to every last screen on the planet. Like, tirelessly. As in not resting. And honestly, we thought we were doing pretty well, until we were playing beer pong with Dennis Rodman (long story), and he let slip that North Korea was working on a secret new TV set—the Eong Teoli—and was shopping around for a media app. One long flight to Pyongyang later (the Macadamia nuts were both amazing and…


Plex for PS3™ and PS4™ now available in North and South America!

01.20.15 109 Comments

We hope you had a great holiday season and either played in the snow (maybe you went skiing! sledded down a snowy road! went snowmobiling with a billionaire’s daughter while dodging gunfire!) or (dear southern hemisphere) had a great time at the beach (maybe you surfed! made a sand castle! punched a shark in the face!) Anyway, you’ve been very patient, and we’re thrilled to be able to let you know that Plex for PlayStation® is now available in North and South America.…


Plex and VIZIO!

10.15.14 408 Comments

If you’re following along at home, with a bucket full of coconut-oil popcorn (delicious! healthy!), you probably saw our recent announcement where we unveiled a new direction for Plex in the living room. Beautiful library browsing and new and exciting content discovery features all wrapped up in a pair of brand new apps that feel perfectly at home on the big screen. But what if you’re not a gamer, or have no plans to add an Xbox to your personal media arsenal…

If you’ve been around for a while, you know how much we love bringing the awesome Plex experience to a brand new platform. Whether that means working hard to run on existing devices like the Roku, or working more closely with a partner like Google to bring you a world class Android TV app, we’re always looking for new and cool ways to make sure you can access your media wherever you are on your favorite device. Well today, we’re super excited to announce…

To show appreciation for your loyalty, the price of your subscription is not increasing (and if you were thinking about upgrading, now is the time). If you…


Frankly my trailer, I don’t give a playlist

07.31.14 337 Comments

I can’t even tell you how much pleasure it gives me to sit down and write this post. Why, you might ask? Because today we’re bringing you two of the most highly requested features we’ve had, ever. If you look at the Plex Pass feature voting forum, you’ll see the #1 requested feature is trailers. And today, dear reader, you shall have trailers. But it doesn’t end there. It’s like Christmas in July! (That’s exceptional even in the southern hemisphere, right?)…


Plex on the brand new Android TV!

06.25.14 76 Comments

No doubt you’ve been glued to the interwebs, watching the Google I/O keynote. Is the next version of Android named Lollipop, Lickable Lemur, or Limoncello? I’m honestly not sure, because I’m writing this the night before. But what I do know is that an awesome new platform has launched: Android TV. Now if there’s a new way to get content on your TV, we try our hardest to be there from the start, and we’re super happy to let you…
