Plex has announced that users will be able to watch live TV on its platform anywhere in the world. The platform has begun hosting around 80 free channels with more expected soon. The content will vary from country to country due to licensing restrictions but, in general, there should be something to watch no matter where you are.
The firm said that it is providing a broad spectrum of content including live news like Reuters and Yahoo Finance, kids shows from Toon Goggles, live sports and original content from fubo Sports Network, gaming and esports on IGN1, and LGBTQ+ channels from Revry.
Commenting on the launch, Keith Valory, CEO of Plex, said:
“Two of the most important factors for an enjoyable streaming experience are easily being able to find something of interest to watch, and being able to watch it from any device you choose. Plex offers consumers across the globe a simple yet powerful platform for access to all types of content that can be streamed from all types of devices.”
Over the last year, Plex has announced moves to bring streaming content to its platform to keep up with trends. The firm did, however, re-affirm its commitment to personal media management going forward so that it keeps its traditional user base happy.
