Stream movies for free with Plex's growing offering

We know Plex as a media server with which you can stream local media via your network to all kinds of devices. Recently, an interesting option has been added: watching movies for free. Plex offers a streaming service that is similar to Netflix, but for which you do not have to pay anything. You can stream movies for free.

If you are looking to watch free movies with Plex, you should be aware of some limitations. For the time being, you do not have to count on a rich and modern offer as with Netflix or Amazon. Plex has signed a deal with movie studios like WarnerMedia, Lionsgate and Legendary, but not all movies are available in all countries.

The film offer currently consists mainly of relatively older productions of so-called B-movies. That doesn't take away from the fact that there are some very nice productions in between. Plex also pays tribute to the avod principle. That stands for ad supported video on demand. This means that every now and then a short advertisement gets in the way of your viewing pleasure. Well, it costs nothing and is legal.
