Wow,now Plex media has started offering free streaming thousands of free movies, TV shows, extreme sports films, music documentaries, Bollywood musicals, and more. Some super familiar stuff (Hey there, Nic Cage! Looking good, Tom Cruise! You’re totally Overboard, Goldie Hawn!) and super obscure stuff too (welcome to Plex, Squid Man!). All of this goodness is ready to go as soon as you open Plex.
While there might be, oh, one or two other streaming services already out there, they’re building on a decade of extreme passion for media to deliver the best experience possible, while also giving you the control and customization to stream it your way. So dip your toes in and give it a whirl! As with all the Plex content offerings, you can move the free movie source up and down your sidebar or even hide it forever—you’re always in control of your own destiny, or at least your own interface.
So how exactly does this new free service work?
- If you already have content inside Plex: Congrats! Your mediaverse just got a little bit bigger. New free movies and series content will be available in your navigation and homescreen just like all of your other media in Plex, which you can customize or turn off. they’ll also be able to recommend content based on your media collection, just like they do with your music library and TIDAL. You decide whether you want to watch any of the recommended free titles.
- If you don’t have content inside Plex: It’s now easier than ever to experience the highest-rated media app around. Enjoy their best-in-class interface for streaming the movies, TV shows, podcasts, documentaries, and music you love. No hard drive or personal media collection necessary. they’ll bring all the good stuff directly to you.
Over time, they’ll be adding more stuff from different studios and creators—from Oscar-winning Hollywood movies to the latest from India, Russia, China, Japan, Africa, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe to really cool independent movies fresh off the festival circuit. For those who are into acronyms—looking at all you SCUBA heads and NASA geeks—this type of offering is known as Ad-supported Video On Demand, or AVOD. their hope is that Plex becomes your favorite source for free shows and movies, which will all be available across the vast expanse of Plex-enabled devices. And all, you know, for free.Watch now
