Plex today announced that the company’s app is now free to use on the Xbox One and…PlayStation. Previously, Xbox One users required a Plex Pass subscription to be able to use the app. Users can get Plex Pass for $5 per month, $40 per month or get lifetime access for $150. The company stated:
Xbox One and PlayStation users, have we got a great gift for you! Plex apps for your favorite game consoles—all of them—have graduated from their preview periods and are now free for everyone! Joining Xbox 360, as well as our other big screen apps, these newly free ones give users all the basic functionality at no cost. For those of you with a Plex Pass, our premium features, like Parental Controls, Vevo music videos, and Trailers & Extras, look awesome on the big screen.
As Plex notes, if you have a Plex Pass subscription, you will be able to use features like Parental Controls, Vevo music videos, and more. Nonetheless, this is indeed, pretty great news for Xbox One owners (Oh and PlayStation users).
