Plex for Xbox One Makes it Easy to Stream Your (Pirated) Video to the TV

By Adam Clark Estes on at

Following millions of user requests, Plex is finally launching Plex for Xbox. The popular media-streaming app is already available on a wide variety of platforms, it will soon be the easiest way to blast local (and pirated) content from your laptop or elsewhere onto your Xbox. The catch is that for the time being you need to be a Plex Pass subscriber to use the app. A subscription which costs $5/£3 per month, $50/£31 per year, or $150/£94 per lifetime.

An update to the Xbox One that will let you stream local video via DLNA or USB is coming soon, but Plex is coming sooner. Plex for Xbox One hits on Tuesday, and the company says the app will be available for Xbox 360 "soon". When it does arrive, you'll be able to browse your entire video and music libraries in one place. Plex is even integration voice and gesture controls thanks to the Kinect. So get ready to sit back and bark at your Xbox to play movies for you. [Plex]
