About Plex

Plex – A Great Media App

By its name, “Plex”, you may already have an idea of what the app is all about. As it sounds similar to Netflix and Cineplax. The app is a media streaming service which is available for web and as well as smartphones. 

At the initial launch, it was a media player app which was focused to view, organize and play your media content including pictures, videos and audios. It supported more video formats as compared to your native video player and played them smoother. 

They launched their media streaming services just a few months ago, and have managed to attract the users with their quality services.

Broad Support:

Plex is available for a handful of platforms including:

  • Android phones
  • Android TV
  • Apple TV
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • iOS
  • Opera TV
  • Playstation
  • Xbox. 
  • Samsung TV

With its wide support, it has managed to have a large user base that are loyal to their services for years. However, in the article we will focus on its services as an app for mobile phones.

What the Plex App Offers You:

The mobile app offers you the following features:

Play Your Content:

You can view your local phone’s storage content through this app. The app supports many video formats MKV, MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV and more.

Some phones come with a crappy video player that only supports one or two formats. If you have such a phone, you can use this app to play your video content.

Other than videos, it can also view your photos and audio content.

Watch TV Shows & Movies:

The app offers a wide range of movies and TV shows that you can watch and play easily. It contains thousands of movies & TV shows so you will not get bored with it anytime soon. 

The process is simple, you will be offered a categorized list of movies with their thumbnails. You just have to click on the thumbnail, the movie details will be opened and from here you can play it. 

You can also search for a movie by its name through the search bar.

Display Ratings:

The app displays ratings of the movies in the details section. It displays popcorn time and rotten tomatoes rating for a movie. Both of these are considered really trustworthy for movie ratings and reviews.

Hence, it will be easier for you to choose which movie you should watch.

Stream News:

Many people want to be updated on what's happening in the world around them. They tend to watch news all the time. If you are one of them, the app can be a treat for you. 

You can stream news content and documentaries from many news channels. The streams can also be live.


The word may seem strange to you but it is actually a great thing. It is a stand-alone podcasts, video and audio streaming service. 

The app has integrated TIDAL subscription which allows you to search and listen to high quality audio content and podcasts.

Sync or Download Content:

You can sync and download TV shows, podcasts, documentaries and movies with the app. Moreover, you can control the quality for your downloads. 

In this way, you do not have to rely every time on your internet. You can access your downloaded content offline.

You Have Control:

The app offers you many options to control your media experience as you desire. You can control the quality for sync and download, and can save your mobile data by limiting it.

Moreover, you can switch on the subtitles for your videos and can change the look and feel of your app’s interface.


As you may already know, that media streaming services are usually not free. You have to pay for a subscription. The story is different with Plex, as it is free and you can have access to all the major features of the app and can watch movies and TV shows without any restrictions.

But there is a small problem, that is ads. The app displays ads while playing the content which can be really annoying. To remove the annoying ads, you will have to get Plex Pass, a premium subscription for some extra features.

The charges vary from country to country. For the US, the charges are approximately 4.99$ for a month. 

For Pakistan, the charges are as follows:

  • 521 Rs for a month
  • 4200 Rs for a year
  • 15800 Rs for Lifetime

The pricing strategy is reasonable in my opinion. You don’t only get the removal of ads, but some other features:

  • Plex Media Server Upload:  You can upload your photos to their server if your phones is running out of space
  • Parental Controls: A very important feature if you have kids in your home. You can lock your app, restrict some content for your kids.
  • Movies Extras: You can have access to movie extras like cast interviews, deleted scenes, behind the scenes etc.
  • Enhanced Audio: You can have an enhanced audio experience.

All in all, Plex is a great media streaming app with a cheap price that I can recommend to everyone. 

If you wish to run Plex in PC, make sure you read the article.
