Coming soon
Announcing free streaming movies and TV shows!

In the next few months, Plex will start to offer free movies and TV shows from some of the greatest catalogs around. Now you’ll be able to watch these beloved classics and exciting new movies in the same polished environment as you enjoy all your other Plex content. These movie and TV streams will be ad-supported so that we can bring them to our users absolutely free.

Plex remains your trusted personal media manager

Together with this growing catalog of content offerings, Plex will remain the best personal media manager for your own collection of movies, TV shows, music, photos, and more. The free movie and TV service will be an additional service for you to watch — or not — as you choose. Nothing about the Plex you currently love will change.

FAQ

Who are your media providers?

Starting in August 2019, Plex has announced partnerships with Warner Media, Lionsgate, and Legendary to distribute their content to Plex’s new free streaming service and vastly expand our third-party video content offerings to bring popular, free ad-supported movies and television shows to our millions of users.

Will it work on my devices?

This new and expanded content will be integrated into the entire Plex ecosystem and work across all supported platforms.

How many titles will be available at launch?

The final number of available titles will depend on how quickly we can onboard new providers. We expect a deep and wide selection of some of the best available media across a variety of sources.

When will roll this out?

We expect to launch this service by the end of 2019.

What type of ads will there be and at what frequency?

This new content will support ads of varying lengths and themes. Rest assured that Plex ad-supported content will have fewer ads per hour than traditional broadcast, cable, or satellite programming.

Can I skip ads?

These ads cannot be skipped.

Do Plex Pass subscribers have to see ads?

This content is solely ad-supported and this content is not supported via Plex Pass subscription fees, so all Plex users, including Plex Pass subscribers, will see ads in this service. Again, the ads are only applicable to the new free movie and TV streams.

Will this cost any money?

Plex ad-supported movies and shows are delivered free of charge, in addition to world-class news, Web shows and Podcasts.

Will it be available outside of the U.S.?

Yes, the service will be available outside of U.S. but some titles may be geo-restricted based on license rights and only available in certain countries.

Will the content providers have access to my personal media info?

No. Quite the opposite. We take pains to ensure that Plex doesn’t even know what’s in your personal media library. Neither Plex nor any of our partners will have any access or visibility into the content or metadata that our users have in their personal media collection.
