Plex has announced that it’s rolling out ad-supported video on demand (AVOD) on its platform worldwide. The free service gives users access to thousands of Oscar-winning movies, cult classics, documentaries, popular TV shows, and more. All of the content will be accessible on almost any device with one-third of the number of ads shown on traditional TV.
According to the firm, the content will include many genres including Action, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Drama, Thriller, Anime, and Kids & Family. Content will come from big publishers including Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, Lionsgate, and Legendary. Some titles that are available include Evil Dead 1 & 2, The Terminator, Dolphin Boy, Deadmau5: Live @ Earl’s Court, and Taylor Swift: Just for You.
Commenting on the big announcement, Keith Valory, CEO of Plex, said:
“Plex was born out of a passion for media and entertainment, and offering free ad-supported premium movies and TV shows is just the latest step in our mission to bring all your favorite content together in one place. What started more than a decade ago as a passion project to make accessing media on connected devices easier has evolved into the most comprehensive streaming platform in the industry, used by millions of people around the world.”
