Plex Pass users can now access their over-the-air and CableCARD HDTV recordings.
Plex has announced the launch of Plex DVR. With the necessary setup, the Plex DVR feature allows Plex Pass subscribers to watch their HDTV recordings on virtually any media device from anywhere in the world.
"We've put a lot of time into this release, and the result is a really elegant DVR, which takes advantage of all the power and intelligence of Plex," said Scott Olechowski, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Plex. "Plex rounds out the cord cutting experience with a beautifully organized, easy-to-navigate interface that makes all your content available wherever you go. Now you can view TV in a living room or on your phone, using a streaming stick in a hotel, or even on a plane when you're offline. The addition of DVR allows our customers to make Plex the heart of their media experience. No other solution comes close."
To enjoy Plex DVR, customers will need a Plex Pass subscription, an HDHomeRun (HDHR) digital tuner, and any digital antenna. Once the HDHomeRun is paired with your Plex media server, users can record OTA content and watch it through the Plex app of their choice. This includes support for iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, Linux, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire, NVIDIA SHIELD and other Android TV devices, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation, and most Smart TVs. In addition to OTA content, Plex DVR also supports non-DRM CableCARD channels on the HDHomeRun PRIME network attached digital tuner.
The Plex Pass DVR feature is currently available as a beta release for Plex Pass users. A Plex Pass subscription currently costs $4.99 per month, $39.99 per year, or $149.99 for a lifetime subscription. The media server platform offers a variety of features, including Mobile and Cloud Sync, Premium Music, full access to all Plex Apps, parental controls, and much more. Click here for our full review!
