Plex began beta testing integration with Apple’s TV app last month but at that time, some of the specifics were unclear. Now Plex has confirmed that it is rolling out the integration of its free on-demand video streaming service with the Apple TV app.
Plex is a free streaming service and features an ad-supported streaming component that provides free movies and TV shows. The service can also be used to watch live TV and listen to podcasts.
Plex officially is now officially integrated with the Apple TV app
There are 2 main aspects to Plex’s streaming service. The first is the streaming service allows users to create their own libraries and access them remotely. The second is that Plex offers its own ad-supported movies and TV shows that can now be streamed to the Apple TV app. An employee from Plex explained the streaming service’s integration with the Apple TV app, saying that it is not technically possible to stream user-hosted content from Plex to the TV app.
When the ad-supported streaming service is connected with the TV app, users will see the following message:
Start watching by connecting Plex.
This participating app will share what you watch with Apple.
Your playback, searches, purchases, and device trust score are used to personalize your experience, improve that of others, send you notifications, and prevent fraud.
