Plex, the popular media software creator, this week launched Plex Web Shows. This organized collection of free, unlimited, and on-demand web series comprises content from publishers such as Condé Nast, GQ, and Saveur among others.
Plex aims on making its Web Shows portal content widely appealing and diverse. “The content features celebrity, sports, food and wine, pop culture, science and tech, cooking, home and garden, music, and gadgets among others,” as per official website of Plex. The firm claimed to the media during the launch that the portal will have 67 shows’ 19,000 episodes on offer. And they aim on including much more in the coming period.
The firm has been busy both removing and adding functionalities as it streamlines its services. In 2018, Plex has included DVR scheduling for Apple TV, support for podcasts, and VR on Oculus & Google Daydream. But the offering has also closed down less popular functions such as Watch Later and Cloud Sync. It is all part of aiming on what users are actually employing, rather than carrying on to support functions that most do not even know exist.
Speaking of video streaming, earlier Apple inked a multi-year and unique content affiliation with Oprah Winfrey. As the fraction of this affiliation, Winfrey and Apple will produce original programs that hold her unparalleled capability of linking with audiences all over the world.
According to a media report, which quotes one TV official who has had a word with Apple, the Cupertino-located tech behemoth aims to trade a standalone subscription to its original shows, priced less than Netflix. The standard offering of Netflix in the U.S. has a price tag of $11 per month. The report also rumors that the iPhone-manufacturer might make all or some of the content accessible for free for consumers of Apple’s TV application.
