Earlier this year, Plex announced it would be launching a new, ad-supported streaming service with no subscription fee.

Plex says thousands of free movies, TV shows, sports films, documentaries, musicals, and more are now available via the Plex site and mobile apps. The free films and TV shows, which include classics like Rain Man, Raging Bull, Apocalypse Now and The Terminator, will appear alongside your existing Plex library.

"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. This new streaming service will be available in your Plex interface through a free movie source, which can be hidden entirely if you don't have any interest in browsing Plex's free content. There is no subscription or special hardware required, though the content will include ads.

Plex's free media can be played on nearly all platforms, including Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad, along with Roku, smart TVs, Android devices, and consoles.

Plex isn't the first to dole out such an offering - Crackle, Pluto TV and The Roku Channel are just a few of the many similar services that immediately come to mind - but it is a welcome addition nevertheless. It's worth noting that the ads served though this service can't be skipped, and even those who are Plex Pass subscribers will see them when they watch. Personal media collections will not be subjected to ads, as ads will be limited to the new free on-demand video content. Plex says that the streaming service it has on offer today "will deliver more content to more countries than any other free streaming service to date", which is a pretty big boast.
