Brand New Plex App on the Platform of the People

02.24.15 172 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…

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.…

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.

But what if you’re not a gamer, or have no plans to add an Xbox to your personal media arsenal…

Frankly my trailer, I don’t give a playlist

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.

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?

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…

Plex on the Chromecast! It’s Official.

Do you remember where you were when Google announced the Chromecast? I do. I was in our online chatroom hanging with the Plex crew when the news broke. We realized immediately that the diminutive little dongle and Plex would be a match made in heaven. We simply couldn’t imagine an easier (or cheaper) way to fling your media onto every big screen in the house. The entire team ran off to buy Chromecasts immediately, and soon we were shipping extras to our…
