Plex today announced a new partnership with Warner Bros that will allow Plex to offer additional third-party content.

Plex will be able to provide users with free ad-supported movies and TV shows through the Plex app on Apple TV, iPhone, and other devices.

plexdevices
For those unfamiliar with Plex, it's an all-in-one media hub that organizes your entire library of content, from TV shows and movies to music, photos, and more. Plex also offers free access to news, web shows, podcasts, and live television access when paired with an antenna.

Rumors earlier this year suggested Plex was pursuing partnerships with rights holders and networks to bring ad-supported content to the Plex platform, and the Warner Bros deal appears to be the first content partnership to come out of those talks.

Plex says that it plans to begin offering feature film titles from Warner Bros later this year, adding to the live TV, podcast, and news content that it already offers. There's no word yet on what titles will be included nor specifically when the service will be launching.

Ads. So sick of ads.

Ads, ads, everywhere an ad
Blockin' out the shows, breakin' my mind
Buy this, don't buy that, can't you read the ad?

"Ad supported", so, decidedly not free.

Aka Warner Brothers gets metadata on all of Plex’s users and Plex makes a few bucks.

Might have to switch to Emby soon.

Equally excited and concerned by this news. My expectation for Plex is that it gives me a nice way to access my own media without being tracked and herded by media and advertising companies...

I like easy access to more content but not thrilled about Plex becoming another point of data collection about me and my preferences.
