Cut the Cord

With a compatible tuner and antenna, you don’t have to sacrifice any of the local, over-the-air programming when you cut the cord—you can get them for free.

Our easy-to-use program guide and powerful search let you find, watch, and record your local movies, shows, news, and sports. Best of all, your recordings integrate seamlessly with your existing media libraries, streamable to any Plex-supported device.

Take live TV with you everywhere

Plex Live TV supports channels from any major US or Canadian network that your antenna picks up, as well as local programming, news, and sports. For those in the US, Plex Live TV supports channels from networks such as ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and CW. If you're in Canada, you can enjoy CBC, CTV, and more.

Over-the-air (broadcast) channel lineups vary based on your location, elevation, and surroundings.

Your Recordings, Integrated Seamlessly

When it comes to recording your favorite TV series or highly-anticipated sports, Plex DVR offers a sleek and intuitive interface limited only by the storage space on your hardware. Recordings are then available for you to watch on more devices than any other DVR solution.
