If you’re like me you use Plex a lot but sometimes you want to find out what’s going on local or globally via the news. Today that changes as Plex is introducing Plex News! It will be presented alongside your existing media for a seamless experience and as you watch different clips overtime Plex says their AI will better curate your news for you.
Why Plex + News?
Back when Plex acquired Watchup it really when the idea came to fruition. Partnering with over 190 global publisher partners such as CNN, CBS, Financial Times, and Euronews, and local news sources for over 80% of markets in the US there’s plenty to choose from.
News for Plex will be rolling out to all users over the next 48 hours, starting with Plex Pass subscribers, and is supported on Android TV, NVIDIA SHIELD, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, Android Mobile, and iOS.
*Note: Plex News is Ad-supported and doesn’t require a Plex Media Server.
