Earlier this month, Plex, the online media server, announced the official launch of Plex Cloud Service. This aspect of the platform, which has been in beta since September, has finally been released to all Plex Pass users, affording users another option for media storage.
In the traditional form of Plex, the server itself is housed on your Mac, Windows or Linux computer. From there, by downloading the app on whatever devices you use, you have access to your media files from anywhere if your computer at home is on and connected to a local server. All content you deem public, is available to share with users who have subscribed to your server as well.
Now with Plex Cloud storage, coupled with a Plex Pass subscription and a cloud storage provider like Dropbox, GoogleDrive or OneDrive, you can access all your media content on any device at any time in 60 seconds or less.
Plex in its traditional form is free to all users through download via the Plex website. Plex Pass is available for $4.99 a month and provides features like: Free HDTV recording for 86 of the 100 most watched channels on tv, i.e., ABC, NBC, CW, just to name a few; parental controls, multiple users, and much more. Pass users have additional pricing options of $39.99 per year or $119.99 for lifetime.
