Nope not at all. Plex users have Plex for a very specific reason and streaming content from other servers is not it. I have mine because it’s best to have all my movies available even when the internet goes out and licenses from major brands expire.

My opinion here: This pandemic is likely going to force Apple's hand to acquire a significant amount of content sooner than later. Otherwise this experiment is going to go the way of iTunes Ping.

I've enjoyed a few of the shows that the service offers, but it's going to be in trouble once the free one year subscriptions run out. It's hard to justify renewing the service(with real money) and only a small handful of shows that are available.
I don’t know how much TV you have to watch to run out of content but for me, it went from falling behind a few shows I want to watch to a flood of new shows that I wont be able to get to, with even more coming.

Apple was wise to offer it for free to Apple hardware buyers while they build up the library. We’re only 5 months in and the library is already growing large with dozens of shows in the works and news of deals in sports. AppleTV+ will easily justify its price. Heck, I’d pay $4.99/month for the second season of For All Mankind alone.

Ping was DOA. I don’t think there’s ever been an Apple product that failed as early as Ping. Maybe Apple Music Connect, but comparing ATV+‘s possible trajectory to Ping is a stretch.
