Plex’s ad-supported video-on-demand offering requires no paid subscription or additional equipment to access thousands of titles across a variety of genres like Action, Sci-Fi, Comedy, Drama, Thriller, Anime, Kids & Family, and more, from the world’s biggest publishing studios, including Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, Lionsgate, and Legendary.

A small sample of titles available at launch include:
● American Ultra starring Kristen Stewart (available for a limited time)
● Bruce Campbell masterpieces Evil Dead 1 & Evil Dead 2
● Frequency starring Dennis Quaid
● Multi-Oscar award-winning Rain Man, starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise
● Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell classic Overboard

● Music concerts and documentaries featuring some of the biggest stars in music, including Nicki Minaj: Pink Planet, Deadmau5: Live @ Earl's Court, Taylor Swift: Just for You, and Electric Daisy Carnival Experience

Plex says it will help users discover content they enjoy with cross-content-type recommendations and intelligent discovery features. You can download the Plex app from the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

“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, CEO of Plex. “What started more than a decade ago as a passion project to make accessing media on connected devices easier has evolved into the most comprehensive streaming platform in the industry, used by millions of people around the world.”
