You can now watch live TV on Plex with Apple TV and Android

Media organisation and streaming software Plex is about to get a whole lot better, with a host of new features set to go live.

Back in June, the company announced the beta launch of its LiveTV feature, which was limited to Plex iOS devices, Android TV users, and the Nvidia Shield.

But with the new update, the feature comes out of beta with support for the Android mobile OS and Apple TV.

That means users of those platforms will now be able to watch live TV and record shows, movies, sports, and more with Plex DVR.

You’ll still need an antenna and tuner to make use of the LiveTV feature and watch local programming, sports, and news, but as long as you’ve got a Plex Pass it’s all free.

However, if you don’t have Plex Pass, you’ll need to pay either £3.99 a month, £31.99 for a year, or £94.99 for a lifetime subscription.

The update essentially means you can watch Live TV and use the DVR feature without having to switch apps.

But that’s not all Plex has announced. The company also made good on its promise to provide a timeshift feature.

The new functionality means you’ll be able to pause/play, rewind, and fast forward live tv during your Plex LiveTV adventures.

Plex says it’s rolling out updates to the entire line of Plex apps, so it could take a while for the new features to arrive on your app.

Roku, Fire TV, Smart TV’s, and Plex Web App updates are said to be next on the list, so keep an eye out in the coming days and weeks.
