Streaming services are all the rage. There are top tier options such as Netflix and Disney+, and then there are free options such as Crackle and Tubi TV. We’ve compiled a list of the best streaming TV services, but now there’s a new entry to consider.
What Is Plex’s Free Streaming Service?
Plex announced its streaming service in a post on The Plex Blog. The company is offering “thousands of free movies, TV shows, extreme sports films, music documentaries, Bollywood musicals, and more.” It’s free, with no hardware or subscription required.
Plex claims that it’s aiming to “deliver the best experience possible, while also giving you the control and customization to stream it your way.” And unlike other free streaming services, Plex’s offering is available in more than 200 countries worldwide.
As for the content, while there’s bound to be a lot of stuff you’ve never heard of, there are also some big-name films included. Such as Rain Man, American Ultra, Apocalypse Now, Raging Bull, The Terminator, Teen Wolf, Thelma and Louise, and Lord of War.
How to Watch Free Movies and TV Shows on Plex
All you need to do is head to Plex.tv/watch-free/ and sign up for a free Plex account. After that you’ll be able to watch lots of content for free across a range of different devices. There will be the occasional ad break, but that’s surely a small price to (not) pay.
