Streaming media platform Plex today announced the launch of a free Live TV feature, which will let Plex users access and watch 80+ live television channels at no cost and with no hardware required.


Live TV options range from live news like Reuters TV and Yahoo finance to children's shows and live sports. Movies, documentaries, gaming, esports, comedy, game shows, anime, and more are also available.

Plex's new Live TV option is different from its already available over-the-air TV and DVR feature that takes advantage of a digital antenna and tuner. This existing feature will continue to be available, providing over-the-air free access to local channels and networks like NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, the CW, and PBS.

Along with live television options, Plex also offers podcasts, music access, news clips, web shows, and free on-demand movies and TV shows through partnerships with a number of media companies, plus it works with personal media collections.

Plex's new Live TV feature is available on Apple TV and iOS devices, Roku, Android devices, Amazon Fire, smart TVs, and the web.

This seems to be a subset of the bundled "channels" and content that appear on Pluto TV and Tubi. I'm a big fan of Plex but I don't see this adding any value at this time.

Should they expand this section to include the rest of Pluto TV/Tubi bundle, or content that is exclusive to Plex, THEN it'll be something noteworthy.

They’re just a bunch of garbage channels that nobody on earth has ever heard of before, playing content that nobody cares about.

It’s best to just stick with OTA channels, using a TV tuner like the HDHomeRun.

I have been a Plex Pass lifetime member for years, used to love it.

It seems that with almost every update now they add more bloat, more mess. The app is horrible to navigate and has been for some time.
