Plex, the media server and streaming solution for cord-cutters, is increasing the amount of free content on the platform. Today it announced it is partnering with Warner Bros to provide free ad-supported movies and TV to the service. Through the new agreement, the free content will be available to Plex users in the U.S. later this year.
Free Ad-Supported Movies and TV Shows on Plex
In addition to using Plex to view your local media collection, this partnership increases the amount of free digital content that Plex delivers. You can use Plex to subscribe to your favorite podcasts and the service includes Plex Web shows that feature free and on-demand streaming videos on topics including sports, news, music, cooking, and more.
“Our mission is to tame the growing chaos in the media landscape,” said Keith Valory, CEO of Plex. “Licensing these movies from Warner Bros. enables us to offer more types of third-party content than any other platform and bring it all together in one beautiful solution. Premium ad-supported movies and shows deserve first-class treatment alongside other content that consumers enjoy daily, as opposed to being orphaned in yet another stand-alone app.”
Since the Warner Bros movies and TV shows coming later this year are ad-supported, you won’t need to be a Plex Pass subscriber. Anyone can view the content via the Plex app which is available on virtually every platform and device out there.
On top of the free streaming content, if you are a Plex Pass subscriber, you can use Plex DVR to record OTA television and get access to premium streaming music with its partnership with TIDAL and other perks. Plex keeps adding new content and features and is turning into the one-stop-shop as your centralized multimedia solution.
