If the last year has taught us anything, it’s that news is a very important part of our media diet. Especially as a cord-cutter, as many of you are, it can be challenging to find that nourishment, like when you hide kale from a hipster. A few months ago, we introduced the awesome new Plex DVR, which gives people an incredibly simple way to suck content out of thin air (or cable) and store it in their libraries. We were able to leverage many aspects of our platform in order to provide you with features and ease of use not found elsewhere. This kind of awesome, unified experience just isn’t possible for others, and we’re going to be building on that as we move forward to bring news media to you in a holistic manner within Plex!
