It’s a clean, straightforward, and user-friendly tool to bring all your various media in a single area – this makes finding what you want to consume easier.
Now, there 2 different variations of PLEX, there is the Free version and the PLEX Pass Version. We’ll go over the free one first.
No matter whether you go with the free one of the paid one Plex organizes your media beautifully,
Plex enhances your home media library by adding descriptions, plot
summaries, posters, and album covers, and more with apps created specifically for your favorite platform. Our On Deck feature keeps track of your favorite shows. Plex also knows which movies and shows you’re watching, so you can easily pick up where you left off on any device or play the next episode. Recently added content is also presented front and center so you can quickly see what’s new.
There is also PLEX News which is the perfect complement to your media library—video news from 200+ of the most trusted sources in the world (including AP, IGN, Reuters, Euronews, Financial Times, and many more), presented beautifully and seamlessly alongside your own media.

Firstly there is PLEX Live TV and DVR. With a compatible digital tuner and antenna, watch and record live HDTV digital broadcast channels, including CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, and local news and sports, using Plex Live TV and DVR. Plex is the most affordable and accessible way for anyone to watch and record free over-the-air high definition channels from nearly any device, anytime. Watch the latest shows or your team’s kickoff the moment they air, complete with the ability to pause, fast-forward, rewind, and record.
There’s is mobile sync if you’re cruising at 30,000 feet, sailing across the Atlantic, or taking the subway to work—even when you’re offline, Plex Sync has you covered. Sync any Plex content you want to take with you on any device and Plex makes it available offline, with the same intuitive interface.
What about music you may ask, well PLEX has you covered there too!

Digging your current jam? Create a Plex Mix based on similar tracks. Our smart mix maker will help you rediscover forgotten gems in your music library. With audio fingerprinting, Plex recognizes your music files so it can find metadata, like cover art, artist bios, genres, moods, and album extras.
And last but not the least
PLEX Home, which is actually one of my favourite features. PLEX Home allows you to control the media your friends and family can access, both in and out of the home. Plex Home allows you to create customized, managed accounts and restrict content those users can access. Buy one Plex Pass for your home and share all of your Plex Pass benefits, like Live TV and DVR. Recently added content is also presented front and center so you can quickly see what’s new.
If you’re a media buff and have an archive of various files to back this up, then PLEX is something that we’d definitely recommend to make things easier and more convenient on your part. We can also say that this is one of the best, cleanest, and straightforward software available today and the fact that it’s free of ads makes this even better. Just make sure that you have a stable and quick internet connection then PLEX will definitely not disappoint.
If you still don’t believe how beautiful PLEX is, have some shots from it.
I also want to say a big thank you to the Plex Marketing Dept for making this artcile possible by providing me with a Plex Pass and the Hardware for the Live TV/ DVR.
