So Plex have teamed up with a bunch of content-owners (Warner Bros, MGM, Legendary and others included) to offer a range of free, ad-supported movies and TV shows - available now.

I have had a quick look on my iPad whilst at work and unless I am missing anything, the NZ content seems to be a handful of decent "classic" movies (i.e pre-1970 or so) and a barrow-load of utter dreck.

 

 

 

Anyone else had better luck finding anything worthwhile

I'm a life time member from years back but for me most of the features of the last few years just dont interest me.

It seems whenever the client get updates and I go round turning things off !

Never stream externally. Not interested in video podcasts etc.

it can be disabled in Online Media Sources in PMS.

 

 

 

the content choice is pretty poor for us. the sad part is the development work on last 2 months to implement this has caused so many issues and delays fixing other plex bugs.

I suspect Plex get a share of the AD revenue. I'd expect more of this sort of thing to come to boost their cash flow.

Could it be that you aren't the only person they write this product for by chance? :)

 

I stream from lots of places and video podcasts are kinda interesting (thanks for the heads up I need to go and check them out).
