Plex's new Live TV grid view, which is designed to allow customers to find TV shows and movies through a traditional grid-based user interface, is now available for Apple TV. The grid view is available for both live TV content and content saved using the built-in DVR functionality in Plex. It first rolled out on the web in June before launching for tvOS today. Grid view organizes TV shows by channel and time of day, much like a standard cable TV guide, with a scrollable timeline format for an overview of what's on every channel that's available to you. Accessing live TV and the new grid view option requires a Plex Pass, priced starting at $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year. Plex is currently offering a deal through Best Buy that provides six months of Plex Pass service for $19.99. Plex has been offering live TV options since August 2017, with customers able to access over-the-air television channels with no cable subscription using an antenna and a TV tuner. Free over-the-air programming includes major US networks like ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, and the CW along with local programming, news, and sports. Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with Best Buy.
