Content available includes shows and movies from Warner Bros. and other major production houses like Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Lionsgate, and Legendary.
Plex's free content offerings span movies, TV shows, and music documentaries, but it also serves up content that's a little less mainstream such as extreme sports films and Bollywood musicals.
"Plex was born out of a passion for media and entertainment, and offering free ad-supported premium movies and TV shows is just the latest step in our mission to bring all your favorite content together in one place", said Keith Valory, Plex CEO. You'll have the option of positioning the freebie source wherever you choose on the sidebar - or you can even hide it entirely if you aren't interested. It's a convenient trade-off, and in a crowded streaming space where every subscription sets you back anywhere from $5 to $15 or more, dealing with a few ads in exchange for free streaming seems like a welcome trade-off. Though this free content is aad-supported, an FAQ on the company's website says that "Plex ad-supported content will have fewer ads per hour than traditional broadcast, cable, or satellite programming". The free content is ad-supported, but that's to be expected-especially since Plex Pass is not required.
Plex says it will continue to add content to the free library, including everything from recent Hollywood movies to new releases from India, Russia, Japan, Latin America, and other regions.
