plex live tv

Plex has become the latest TV streaming service to offer live TV channels as part of its package.

In order to watch live, viewers will need a Plex Pass. It means they can watch live TV on any iOS device or Android TV set anywhere in the world. It will soon support Android smartphones and tablets and Apple TV, too.

The live TV service works with any antenna, as well as a number of digital tuners, including ATSC, WinTV-dualHD and Digital TV for Xbox One.

The live TV service offers local TV channels, sports and news broadcasts.

Plex has launched a bunch of other features, too. Plex Cloud lets you store shows in the cloud so you can watch them anywhere you get an internet connection.

Offline playback lets you download said shows to watch where you don't have signal or wi-fi, while automatic photo tagging will make it a lot easier to sort your snaps.

Again, you'll need a Plex Pass subscription to access these features. It costs $4.99 (£3.99) a month, $49.99 (£31.99) a year, or $119.99 (£94.99) for a lifetime membership.

Amazon Prime Video recently added live TV channels to its streaming offering too, including live sport for the first time.
